The return last month of former Highlanders and Chapungu goal-getter Cuthbert Malajila from an unfruitful trip to Belgium where he had gone hunting for a club should boost the Glamour Boys strike force that evidently missed the cutting edge provided by the sharp-eyed forward. Malajila has contributed 12 of his sides 32 goals in the premiership. He has been a reliable forward with great speed that has given opposition defenders a hard time, much to the delight of the Dynamos crowd. Even DeMbare head coach Elvis Chuchu Chiweshe, who insists that victory is more the result of teamwork than individual effort, will surely be pinning his hopes on Malajila turning on the magic this afternoon.
In midfield Chuchu will be hoping that experienced captain Desmond Maringwa will be able to wrestle control from talented Shooting Stars captain Elvis Meleka to keep the supply lines open to the deadly Malajila upfront. But the Dynamos defence are likely to be given a good run for their money by the Wild Boys speedy forward, Pride Tafirenyika, who can be lethal especially when given too much room to play.
Stars beat Kiglon in the quarterfinals while DeMbare outclassed Moses Chungas Gunners to set up todays semifinals clash. Lengthens are already through to the finals after defeating Bulawayo giants, Highlanders at Barbourfields last weekend and eagerly wait to see who is their next opponent in the final battle for the US$40 000s winners cheque set for October 3.Post published in: Football
