Dynamos, FC Platinum match postponed


The Castle Lager Premier Soccer League (PSL) match between FC Platinum and Dynamos has been moved to next Wednesday as the Harare giants will only arrive from Algeria Wednesday afternoon.

The league match had been scheduled to be played in Harare on Thursday.

PSL chief executive officer Kennedy Ndebele yesterday confirmed the match’s postponement.

“That match has been postponed to Wednesday next week. Dynamos are due in the country back from Champions League assignment tomorrow afternoon (Wednesday),” Ndebele said.

Dynamos trip from Algeria took them to France and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, before getting another connecting flight home.

Newcomers FC Platinum, who went on a player-shopping spree off-season, won their first match in 2011 season beating Shooting Stars 2-0.

The Harare giants, who lost on an away-goals rule to MC Alger of Algeria in the Caf Orange Champions League, had a shocking start to the season when they fell 1-0 to their bogey side Kiglon at Rufaro Stadium.

The Glamour Boys were silenced by a William Manondo goal in the 68th minute. Last year, Kiglon dented Dynamos, title hopes after beating them
1-0 in the second half of the season after holding them to a goalless draw in the first half.

Cash-rich FC Platinum boast some of the best players in the land, the likes of reigning Soccer Star of the Year Charles Sibanda, gunman Norman Maroto, Tafadzwa Dube, Bheki Ncube, Thabani Kamusoko, Daniel Vheremu, the Ngodzo brothers Joel and Zephania and Francis Kanda.
