Dynamos hope to return to winning ways

elvis_chiwesheHARARE Harare giants Dynamos who succumbed to a humiliating 1-2 defeat at the hands of league champions Monomotapa last Wednesday, seek to get back to their winning ways when they take on Lengthens, in a tricky Premier Soccer League match at Rufaro Stadium this afternoon.

The defeat to Monoz left the former champions level on matches played with second-placed Gunners, but enjoying a single point advantage over Moses Chungas charges going into the weekend fixtures. With only six matches to play, the two teams’ league meeting will now almost certainly decide the destiny of the championship.

Dynamos head coach Elvis Chiweshe must certainly be worried over his charges recent inconsistent performances that have seen them losing three times inside two weeks. The shrewd mentor will be hoping this afternoon the Glamour Boys rise to the occasion against an in-form Lengthens to bag the much-needed three points. A loss today would send alarm bells ringing in the DeMbare camp as that would leave the Harare giants facing the prospect of another barren season.

Chiweshe and his charges have already missed the Charity Shield that was snatched from under their noses by bitter city rivals CAPS United, when they handed them a 1-2 hiding in the final two months ago. The Glamour Boys also missed qualification into the final of the BancABC Sup8r tournament after falling 0-1 to Shooting Stars in the semi-final.

Lengthens coach Mandla Masuku, who took over from Bigboy Mawiwi at the beginning of the second half of the season, will be seeking to prove his mettle against seasoned campaigners Dynamos.

Morale is high in the Lengthens camp as the team still has a mathematical chance of clinching the league title if both Dynamos and Gunners falter. Dynamos can only underestimate them at their own peril.
