Chunga, who played for the national team alongside Gumbo, has built a strong team at Gunners and hopes to outwit his former team mate when he faces FC Platinum now under the managerial reins of Gumbo.

The nomadic Chunga, a title winning coach with Gunners in 2009, has lost just once against Dynamos since he joined the club after he left CAPS United. He will be seeking to continue with his fine run.

Last week, he edged Kiglon 1-0 and his lads should be an oasis of confidence ahead of the crucial tie. The outspoken Chunga will do a huge favour to his former team Dynamos if he manages to beat FC Platinum, who are in the race with Dynamos for the coveted league title.

But he said this week he will be not doing any favours for anyone but will be playing simply to win the match for his team. "It's not about Dynamos but about Gunners. I am a Gunners coach and I am playing to win the match for Gunners although I am a Dynamos son. I will also be happy if Dynamos win the league title,' said Chunga.

Gumbo, who has won premier league titles in Malawi and Botswana and also two with Highlanders, will be hoping to extend his lead at the top of the league table with a victory over Gunners.

FC Platinum have 49 points from 25 matches while Dynamos are trailing with 45 points.

Gumbo could not be reached to comment ahead of the match. Meanwhile former league champions Monomotapa face Hwange at Rufaro tomorrow (Friday) in another league match.
