Dynamos’ dominance under scrutiny


Dynamos’ dominance in local football will come under the sternest scrutiny when they lock horns with second-placed Motor Action in a Premier Soccer League match at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday.
The former champions are still licking their wounds after a morale-shattering 2-0 defeat at home to TP Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo in the Africa Champions League match played at the National Sports Stadium last Sunday.
Now it would appear the Harare giants may fly into the fire from the frying pan when they clash with red hot Mighty Bulls who have been impressive so far this season, scoring a massive 20 goals in nine games with 22 points, two points adrift of Dynamos who have a game in hand. Although Elvis Chiweshe’s charges have a 100% record in the league this season, they have scored eight goals less than Motor Action which should be enough warning to the league leaders.
Mighty Bulls coach Joey Antipas refused to be drawn into statistics yesterday preferring to call the match “big”.
“There is no doubt that the match is big but we will treat it like any other game. It’s the clash of the top two teams.
“But we believe playing Dynamos is just like playing any other team in the league and Sunday’s match is no different. We will play our normal game,” said the Warriors assistant coach. The Bulls gored Black Mambas 3-0 in their last assignment.
In another mouth-watering match, depleted Caps United who are a distant eighth on the log, host former champions Monomotapa on Saturday when they are expected to parade new signings Joel Luphahla and former Eagles striker Clive Kawinga.
The 2004 and 2005 champions who received a 5-0 hiding from Sudanese giants Al Hilal in the Confederations Cup are only expected in the country today after they overstayed in Sudan to play Al Hilal rivals El Merreikh.There was a virtual exodus at Caps after six of their senior players left the club for South Africa where they were signed by different clubs.
Bulawayo giants Highlanders’ derby against city rivals Bantu Rovers was postponed to allow Bosso to participate in a humanitarian match against Jomo Cosmos to add a voice against xenophobic attacks in that country at Johannesburg Stadium.
Saturday: Caps United v Monomotapa (Rufaro), Gunners v Eagles (Gwanzura), Lengthens v Shooting Stars (Dzivarasekwa) Douglas Warriors v FC Victoria Rudhaka), Black Mambas v Kiglon (Morris Depot) Sunday: Dynamos v Motor Action (Rufaro), Shabanie Mine v Hwange (Maglas)
