“The race is still wide open and being on top of the log is a huge challenge. Every team wants to win against us, but we can withstand the pressure and we have capable and experienced players who I believe understand very well the position we are in. We will not put ourselves under any pressure, but take it one game at a time,” said Pasuwa.
With nine games remaining, DeMbare were on course, as they sat at the apex of the 16-team log standings and seemed unstoppable. Breathing on their neck were former log leaders Harare City, a point away and perennial rivals, Highlanders, who were three behind.
“Even though we are on top of the log, it doesn’t mean we have to sit on our laurels and think those points will just come like ‘manna from heaven’. We have to go out there and prepare ourselves to literally die on the pitch.
We will also not rely on any of the individuals we have because this is not an individual sport, so anyone with a scoring opportunity will have to utilise it.
“For instance our top striker Washington Phakamisa has netted seven goals and we don’t complain as we know that we play many different formations, which are sometimes a challenge to our players.”
Pasuwa praised veteran striker, Murape Murape, who can also be used as an attacking midfielder. The Dynamos coach said he was a role model to young players and the rest of the team.Post published in: Football
