Consistency key to our season - Chihoro

HARARE - Dynamos team manager Richard Chihoro has reckoned his team played impressively in their opening match of the season against How Mine and wants the rhythm taken throughout the season.

The Glamour Boys are seeking a historic fourth successive title having won the previous three campaigns, piping their rivals Highlanders on goal difference on all the occasions.

Calisto Pasuwa’s men opened with a 1-0 win over How Mine at Barbourfields Stadium through an own goal from defender Brighton Dube.

Other title aspirants Highlanders and CAPS United were held by newly promoted sides, Chapungu and ZPC Kariba respectively while Harare City got off to a false start losing 3-0 to Chicken Inn.

DeMbare face ZPC Kariba in their first game in Harare tomorrow. 

“We are aiming to continue with our last weekend performance. We are looking for a positive result in our Sunday game against ZPC Kariba,” Chihoro told the Daily News yesterday.

“ZPC Kariba is a good side and we are expecting a good game but what is important is for the boys to maintain winning consistency.

“I think the boys played well last week considering we were away from home and collecting maximum points was a morale boost for us.

“Our fans expect more from us, especially after the team won the league title in the past three years and we are ready for the job.

“We have to keep the momentum going. It’s important to take each game as it comes. There are no more small teams in the Premiership and we treat all our matches the same way.

“We have to treat all teams with equal respect. ZPC is a good team hence there’s no point in us underrating them.”

Chihoro noted DeMbare need to be at their best after watching ZPC Kariba hold CAPS United to a one-all draw in their first match of the season.

Saul Chaminuka’s men gave CAPS United a tough time in their PSL debut which saw them racing into an early lead with the Green Machine equalizing late in the second half.

“ZPC Kariba might be new comers but we are aware that they have players with Premiership experience,” he said.

“We just want to have a good performance and make sure that our fans will be happy at the end of the day as you know that supporters are very important in football.

“The good part is we are not under pressure going into this match and we will just go and play our normal game.”

Chaminuka signed experienced players in the form of Norman Togara, Pardon Chinungwa and Limited Chikafa, who were at Triangle last season.

Obey Mwerahari, Caleb Masocha, Peter Muzondo, Tawanda Nyamandwe, Tawanda Munyanduri, David Rediyoni, Moses Makanje, Ben Nyahunzwi, Tsepo Ranthokoane and Tonderayi Mateyaunga have also joined the club.

Today: How Mine v Bantu Rovers (Luveve), FC Platinum v Hwange (Mandava, SS), Harare City v CAPS United (Rufaro).

Tomorrow: Highlanders v Shabanie Mine (Barbourfields), Buffaloes v Chicken Inn (Sakubva), Triangle United v Chiredzi (Gibbo, SS), Dynamos v ZPC Kariba (National Sports Stadium), Black Rhinos v Chapungu (Rimuka).
