AmaZulu Polokwane City Usuthu goalkeeper Kapini over unruly fan treatment

Posted: 6 November 2013 Time: 15:16

AmaZulu goalkeeper Tapuwa Kapini has recovered from the traumatic experience of being turned on by some of the club's supporters, according to Usuthu team manager Japhet Zwane.

Kapini was reduced to tears after being struck in the face by missiles thrown by unruly fans in the aftermath of a 2-0 loss to Maritzburg United last weekend.

And while Zwane says the 27-year-old, who shipped seven goals in the previous game against Mamelodi Sundowns, is ready to play against Polokwane City in the League tonight, his place in the team depends on coach Craig Rosslee.

"Yes, Kapini has been training hard and has put behind what happened to him. But whether he will start the match against Polokwane City or not, that decision will be made by the coach," Zwane tells KickOff.com.

"But he is okay and has been positive right through the week."

AmaZulu are currently lying eighth on the log, just four points behind leaders Moroka Swallows. After the trip to Polokwane they take on Bloemfontein Celtic at Moses Mabhida Stadium, with Zwane hoping to then engage with supporters over Kapini's treatment.

"Obviously now we are playing and cannot communicate with our supporters. But this coming weekend we have to because they need to know that this is something that cannot happen again," Zwane says.

Theres one solution for this issue, coach must bench Kapini today and then see if who concedes between the goalkeeper and defenders /Amazulu as a whole .The same goes to Chiefs if Baxter can field in players he has been benching these couple of past matches and see the outcomes.Still Bucs.
