'DeMbare luck to run out'

HARARE - CAPS United assistant coach Brenna Msiska says Dynamos’ recent dominance in the Harare Derby has been down to a “streak of luck which will come to end on Sunday.”

United clash with city rivals Dynamos in the 71st edition of the derby that Msiska concedes has lost its glamour due to the massive exodus of players at the two Harare giants.

You have to go back to 2009 to find the last time the Green Machine were triumphant over the Glamour Boys.

“To me I don’t even see why people say they have been dominant,” Msiska said.

“It’s only that they have been lucky. They have scored good goals but they don’t dominant. If they were dominant over us they should have been beating us by six or seven goals.”

The former CAPS United goalkeeper insisted that Dynamos were going to face a much tougher United.

The former Cup Kings are currently high riding after 10 games without defeat.

“This season it’s like we are coming from the dead. We are playing well and good result against Dynamos will keep us on the right track.”

Msiska added that a win for CAPS will be a bonus following their indifferent start to the season.

“From the way we started the season, winning this championship is going to be a bonus. But we should just keep our form and not put too much pressure on ourselves. “

The former Zimbabwe international also bemoaned the lack of intensity in the current Harare Derbies.

“During our days derbies were about passion because the match was all about protecting the name of the club,” he said.

“But now it’s different because there is no more junior policy. We are buying players from Dynamos and they are buying players from CAPS United. So when players come here it’s just about work. I remember I played 10 years for CAPS, I can tell you there was passion to defend the name of the club.”
