Dynamos in tricky Blue Rangers tie


Dynamos face a tricky fixture when they date relegation-threatened side Blue Rangers in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match at Rufaro on Sunday.

The champions are coming from a morale-boosting win against rivals FC Platinum whom they defeated 2-1 at Mandava Stadium in Zvishavane at the weekend.

That victory saw them taking their points tally to 30, six adrift of log leaders Highlanders.

However, DeMbare have in their path Blue Rangers who are struggling at the basement of the league table, but are a side that can cause one of the biggest upsets in local football.

Blue Rangers, under the guidance of Partson Ndabambi, who took over from the sacked Misheck Chidzambwa, edged army side Black Mambas 2-1 in their previous encounter taking their points tally to 10 from 16 matches, but are still stuck in second position from the bottom.
However, a win over DeMbare could raise hope as they battle against the axe.

Ndabambi has already stoked the flames ahead of the fixture suggesting his team will collect maximum points against Dynamos. He said he did not fear the champions and was looking for nothing short of victory.

Although Dynamos team manager Richard Chihoro admitted Blue Rangers posed a serious threat, he warned them that the champions were not prepared to lose points.

He said the fact that they had a new coach means that he would want to prove a point. “They are a real threat. They have a new coach and he wants to prove a point, especially against Dynamos.

“He won against Black Mambas and he said at the end of the match that he did not fear Dynamos and was looking for nothing short of victory. He talks too much, but we will let the ball do the talking,” said Chihoro.

Dynamos still have pleasant memories of their last meeting with Blue Rangers whom they walloped 6-0 with Takesure Chinyama grabbing his second hat-trick of the season. He was joined in the party by Farai Mupasiri, Tichaona Mabvura and Rodreck Mutuma.
