Machapa, Kamhuka cleared

HARARE – Harare giants Dynamos received a huge boost after their new signings defenders Oscar Machapa and Victor Kamhuka were issued with international clearances by their former South African clubs.

Machapa joined the Glamour Boys from Moroka Swallows where he was deemed excess baggage to their personnel while Kamhuka was coming from relegated side Black Leopards.

The league action is set to resumes Wednesday and the two players could make their debut when DeMbare face Motor Action on Thursday at Rufaro.

Dynamos team manager Richard Chihoro was happy with the development and lauded their chances of defending the title they won in the previous two years.

“It’s a morale boost to the team. It gives the coaches a wide selection base,” Chihoro told the Daily News.

“It has been quite a long break and we are now looking forward to fight. We are ready to defend our title and we are happy with the mood in the team.

“Everyone is working hard. I believe we are on track. We need to concentrate more on our game without looking at other teams. We just need to win our matches and stay within the touching distance with other teams.”

On the Motor Action game, Chihoro added: “They have not been playing well lately but we should not look much into that. We are treating this match just as any other team.

“It’s a new game and in a game of football anything can happen. We will go and give all we have to ensure we come out with maximum points.”

Attention will however be on Machapa, who becomes the fourth former CAPS United player this season after Washington Pakamisa, Clive Kawinga and Stephen Alimenda, to join DeMbare.

In other matches, log leaders Harare City will be hoping to consolidate their lead when they travel to Dulibadzimu for a date against Tripple B.

Bigboy Mawiwi’s men are currently sitting at the top of the table with 37 points from 18 rounds of action.

City beat Tripple 2-0 in the first half of the season.

Elsewhere, CAPS United, who were in dazzling form before the break face FC Platinum at Mandava Stadium in Zvishavane.
