DeMbare seek redemption


By Kevin Mapasure

DeMbare played out to a dull draw against Herentals and the staggering statistic of one shot on target throughout the match has haunted them all week.FOLLOWING their lukewarm start to a campaign that has promised so much  considering their seemingly astute transfer business, Dynamos are under pressure to lift the gloom in their camp when they take on Yadah in a Group One tie of the Chibuku Super Cup at the National Sports Stadium in Harare today.

Today, they have a perfect opportunity to right all their wrongs from the last match as they take on Yadah, who fought out a thrilling 2-all draw with Caps United.

That Yadah have been blaming themselves all week for failing to collect all three points against the Green Machine is ample warning to DeMbare that this one will be no stroll in the park.

Yadah raced to a 2-0 lead in the first half, but were forced to share the spoils after Caps rallied back through a brilliant brace by new signing Ishamel Wadi.

After a tough week where they endured ridicule from their own and rival fans after their lifeless show, Dynamos’ prospects blossomed after they registered six of their seven players who were ineligible to play last week.

Godknows Murwira, as well as new signings Newman Sianchali and Shadreck Nyahwa are now at coach Tonderai Ndiraya’s disposal after their paperwork was regularised by the Premier Soccer League this week.

Also newly registered are Luke Maskiri, Bill Antonio and Geofrey Chitsumba and they will add to the arsenal.

Murwira gave an insight of how things are looking up in the DeMbare camp ahead of the crucial tie.

“We are a squad of 28 players and everyone is capable of delivering results. I believe our availability will make the coaches’ job easier. We are now shifting focus to getting a positive result. Dynamos are all about positive results.

“Our next assignment against Yadah is not an easy one. The result against Herentals reminds us of what we are up against,” he said.

Ndiraya has already said that their objective going into this competition is to improve on their bad record and lift the cup for the first time.

He is happy with his squad this time around and after such bold declarations, fans will demand that Dynamos be the dominant force.

In other matches in the same group,  Caps United take on Harare City, while ZPC Kariba tussle with Herentals.
