Pasuwa cautious

Dynamos coach Calisto Pasuwa is expecting a tough match against Mozambican champions Liga Desportivo Muçulmana de Maputo when the two clash in the second leg of the Caf Champions League first round tie at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday.

For Pasuwa what Dynamos achieved in Maputo Muçulmana can also achieve in Harare, and with this in mind the gaffer wants his players to approach this match as if the first leg did not mean anything.

The two teams played out a 2-all draw in the first leg, meaning that a goalless draw will be enough for DeMbare to progress, but Pasuwa does not intend to use any negative tactics.

“We scored two goals away from home, but I think those who watched that match will agree with me that the team is so good that they can come here and score two goals,” said Pasuwa.

“We have been trying to psych the players up that they should forget about what happened in Mozambique and approach this match with a winning mentality.

“We really have to guard against complacency as it can be our biggest undoing. We really have to be careful.

“In everything we do, we have to be positive, but should not forget we are playing a good side that can upset us, so we have been very serious at training. We are looking at all the 25 registered players to come up with the best side for the match on Sunday.”

Dynamos employed a cautious approach in Maputo playing Takesure Chinyama as a lone striker upfront, but this time they will look to ambush their opponents from the onset and set Rufaro Stadium alight.

No doubt, all attention will be on Chinyama, who scored three goals in his league debut in Dynamos colours against Hardbody on Sunday at Rufaro and will be looking to instil fear in the visitors with an early goal.

Dynamos have a clean bill of health so far and their only worry is they have not secured international clearances for their Zambian imports Arthur Kaseloki and Derrick Kabwe.

Kaseloki has so far impressed coaches more and would be a more plausible candidate for a place in the squad.

The Mozambicans who are playing in this competition only for the second time are expected to arrive in Harare on Friday lunchtime and will train at the match venue the following day.

They will be confident of a positive result in Harare after dominating play in the first leg. With more insight into his opponents Pasuwa will unleash a Dynamos team which is expected to be at its attacking best with the likes of Denver Mukamba expected to play a key role.

If there are any worries for Pasuwa it would at the back where he partnered Patson Jaure and George Magariro in the heart of defence.

He has been working hard to rectify the problems the two had in the first match where Pasuwa bemoaned lack of organisation and he believes come Sunday, the two will click better.
