CAPS UNITED believe their provisional squad for the 2015 football season is ready to be presented to the Premier Soccer League.
The Green Machineâs assistant coach Brenna Msiska, who has been in charge of pre-season preparations in the absence of head coach Mark Harrison, said they have built a competitive team.
CAPS United are set to add former Highlanders caretaker coach Mark Mathe to their coaching staff.
Mathe has been attending the CAPS United training sessions and, watching from a distance and taking notes since the beginning of this week.
He met the clubâs chief executive, Joe Makuvire, at the weekend although a deal for him to join CAPS United is yet to be sealed.
âWe are working hard and the players are improving with each workout,â Msiska said.
âWe are now in a position to name our provisional squad as required by the Premier League and we have targeted the five juniors we want.
âThe players are working hard and their fitness levels are improving and we are happy with the progress.Â We have tried a number of combinations and everything is falling into shape.â
Msiska believes their proposed match against arch-rivals Dynamos on Sunday will help boost their preparations and help them make a good assessment of where they stand right now.
The Chinese officials, who have organised that match, are today expected to host a Press conference that will also feature Dynamos and CAPS United officials.
A cool $25 000 has been set aside for the match, with the winners walking away $15 000 richer and the losers pocketing $10 000.
The two teams will also share gate receipts.
