On the other hand Caps United quartet of goalkeeper Edmore Sibanda, defender Dennis Dauda, midfielders Devon Chafa and Ronald Chitiyo are also part of the Warriors side.

Highlanders coach Erol Akbay concedes that the absence of the four players would slightly affect his game as they have been preparing their onslaught with them in mind but says they are not pressing red buttons.

"We will miss them obviously but we have other players who are equally good," said Akbay told the Chronicle.
