CAPS United midfielder Moses Muchenje reckons they must get a win at all costs as they meet USM Alger CAF Champions League Group B match on Wednesday.

The Zimbabwean Premier League side are desperate to get maximum points after their 2-0 loss at the hands of Al Ahli Tripoli of Libya in their group opener.

Ahead of this encounter at home, United are placed at third spot with zero points and will now target a win.

However, Muchenje insists they will do everything in their power to bounce back into the race for a ticket to the quarter-finals of the competition.

“We are looking forward to it. It’s one game that we must win at all costs, considering we lost in Egypt. The Zamalek game is now water under the bridge,” he said to the Daily Mail.

“We have shifted focus to the next assignment, which is our match against the team from Algeria. Morale is very high in camp.

“We have to do better than what we did in Egypt and if we can continue working hard, we can get a good result.

“We need to utilise our chances. If we can score, that’s the only way we can win games and its one area we should improve as a team.”
The match will be staged at the National Sports Stadium in Harare, getting underway at 15:00 (CAT).
