Cafonline.com: What is the mood like in the Warriors camp?
Nyandoro: Everyone is very positive and we are staying focused. We have had disappointing results in the last two week but we are not looking at that we are looking forward to a positive result a win this time round.

Cafonline.com: What do you think you need to do to win on Sunday ?
