Maringwa warns team mates

desmond_maringwaHARARE - Dynamos captain Desmond Maringwa (pictured) has warned his team mates against complacency ahead of the remainder of the season after they hauled themselves back into contention when they registered their first win of the 2011 Castle Premier Soccer League with a win over money bags FC Platinum.

Martin Vengesayis early strike and veteran Desmond Maringwas clincher deep in injury time of the second half brought Lloyd Mutasa his first points of the season after opening defeats to Kiglon and Motor Action.

Stars, parading three former Dynamos players in Benjamin Marere, Khumbulani Banda and Thabani Kamusoko, went into Wednesdays match determined to keep their 100 percent winning start.

But Benjamin Moyos men fell to a Dynamos inspired by the ageless Maringwa. The win was celebrated with joy by Dynamos fans who had watched in agony their team failing to collect points in the last two matches. Questions were already being asked on whether Dynamos have the capacity to win the league title this term.

But as things start to promise at the blue half of the capital following the emotional victory over FC Platinum on Wednesday the 33-year-old Maringwa has warned his team mates against complacency and says they need to keep their nerve right to the end of the campaign.

“It was a good victory after a poor start,” admitted Maringwa in an interview with The Zimbabwean. “But it is important that we must not be carried away by this win. We need to keep our nerves right to the end of the campaign. Any slip up again will cost us the title. We have to fight for every point in the remainder of the campaign.”

Dynamos will be hoping to win the league title for the first time after they last lifted the domestic crown a good four years ago in 2007 – under the guidance of David Mandigora. If they manage to win it this year, it will also be the first time for Coach Lloyd Mutasa, who is yet to win his league title since he entered the coaching arena a few years back.
