“We have the upper hand here, the odds are against City. We are the ones hosting them and that means a lot.
“We have the home advantage at our side, we have the 12th man (Supporters). They are the ones who have to adapt we are inform already especially at home,” Kawondera told H-Metro.
In their last Cup home game Triangle dismissed Nichrut with a resounding 5-1 win. Kawondera said City are in for a similar treat.
“At home no one can stop us and City is our next target.
“We always bring a superb performance at home, our fans push us to do that and we will be more motivated and confident at the same time.
“We are looking for another resounding victory once again,” he added.
Kawondera however admitted that the game will not going to be an easy as the final.
“It’s a final game and you are definitely guaranteed stiff competition.
“Final games always requires you to raise up to the occasion and be at your best to attract a positive result.
“We will give this game our very best,” he said.
The final presents an opportunity for Mangwiro to win his second Chibuku Super Cup and also to punish his former paymasters for firing him early in the 2016 season.
Meanwhile Harare City coach Mark Harrison has complaints about the venue.
“I think it’s going to be a good final, but I feel the match should have been played at a neutral venue being a final.
“We will go there as under dogs because Triangle are already at an advantage by playing at home,” said Harrison.
