BULAWAYO-based Premier Soccer League side, Chicken Inn are hoping to bounce back to winning ways after their three-nil home defeat to defending champions FC Platinum last weekend.

The Gamecocks have shifted focus to their next match away to new boys Tenax.

Bruised and battered by the humbling defeat at the hands of their title rivals, Chicken Inn are not giving up yet with the Gamecocks hoping to bounce back to winning ways starting with their next assignment away to league debutants Tenax at Vhengere Stadium in Rusape.

“Look, that game is now water under the bridge . We are back to the drawing board to help restore confidence in the boys. We had prepared well for that game unfortunately we lost the plot by conceding very early,” said Chicken Inn Coach, Joey Antipas.

Meanwhile, the Gamecocks are set to lose experienced Goalkeeper Bernard Donavan to South African premiership side Tshakuma Tshama Madzivhandila-TTM at a critical time in the title race.

However, Antipas believes he has experienced replacements in Pride Zendera and the young and promising Samuel Mafukidze.
