Premier Soccer League champions Dynamos have been caught up in a web of the blame game with players reportedly pointing fingers at each other for the horrendous mistake which saw their title retention bid suffer a jolt following the 1-0 defeat to Chicken Inn at Luveve Stadium on Wednesday.

Report by Tawanda Tafirenyika Sports Correspondent
The defeat saw Dynamos losing grip on their title chase as close challengers Highlanders soared to the summit after edging Hwange 1-0 to stretch their unbeaten run to 23 league matches.

But that painful defeat to Chicken Inn continues to haunt Dynamos players ahead of another tricky fixture against a gritty Shabanie Mine at Rufaro on Sunday.

Dynamos skipper Guthrie Zhokinyu, one of the best defenders in the country, beat his own goalkeeper George Chigova in a desperate bid to clear the ball out of danger, as it found its way into the nets.

And, as Dynamos went through the wreckage of that painful defeat, reports from their dressing room yesterday said Zhokinyu has denied responsibility for the mistake.

It is said Partson Jaure and Ocean Mushure are being blamed for the mistake which could prove costly to Dynamos’ championship bid.

“The two defenders, Partson Jaure and Ocean Mushure, clashed as they attempted to clear the ball out of danger, but Ocean was to blame. He should accept responsibility for the mistake. Zhokinyu has denied responsibility,” said a source.

The Dynamos players refused to speak without being cleared by the technical team.

Striker Rodreck Mutuma will miss two games after being shown the red card for a fist-fight with Chicken Inn’s Moses Jackson after the match.

Dynamos will, however, have to put behind them the setback and focus on their next assignment against Shabanie Mine.

Dynamos will be looking for nothing short of victory against the asbestos miners.

Luke Masomere’s men, who were held to a 1-1 draw by police side Black Mambas, managed to hold Dynamos to a 0-0 draw at Maglas in the first round.

Now they will be looking to recover from their recent slump of form which saw them losing 1-0 to Highlanders before the recent draw against Black Mambas.

Premiership leading goal scorer Nelson Mazivisa, with 15 goals, and midfielder Pevington Zimunya, a deadball specialist, are some of the players to watch from Shabanie.

Kalisto Pasuwa’s men know that another slip-up could all, but dampen their chances of lifting the coveted league title for the second year running.

Meanwhile, Highlanders will also be coming to town as they face off Monomotapa in a potentially explosive encounter at Rufaro Stadium on Saturday.

Bosso will also be seeking to maintain their unbeaten run in the league and consolidate their lead at the top of the log table, while Monomotapa will be looking to recover from their shock 3-2 loss to Quelaton as they aim for a top four finish.
