Mutuma scores on return

HARARE - Dynamos assistant coach Tichaona Diya criticised his players’ attitude despite beating Black Rhinos 2-1 yesterday in a match Rodrick Mutuma scored in his com back game for the Glamour Boys.

Mutuma scored in the early stages of the game while Fullback  Ocean Mushure scored the second in the second half.

With the win, Dynamos remain in second position on the Castle Premiership table with 26 points, same points with their city rivals CAPS United but Dembare boost of superior goal difference.

However despite the win, Diya said the Glamour Boys need to change their attitude if they want to win the title.

“Our attitude is not good if we need to win the championship, we need to correct our attitude, I think my boys came into this game underrating Black Rhinos, but this is not good,” Diya, standing in on behalf of head coach Calisto Pasuwa, told reporters after the match.

Diya believed the return of Mutuma will end his team’s scoring problems.

“It’s a good return for Rodrick and I think he will continue with this scoring form.

“His return will give us more options in attack.”

Black Rhinos coach Arthur Tutani blamed his players for failing to utilize their chances.

“We need to go back and work on our mistakes, pressure is now mounting on us to win, However we are now looking on our next assignment, it will be a must win for us,” he said.

"For our next game, we have to win against CAPS United, we know it’s a big game but we need to collect maximum points."

Dembare started the match the better side and were duly rewarded as early as 10 minutes into the game after Mutuma headed in Murape Murape’s cross.

After Dynamos’s goal the soldiers started to claw back into the match and their equalizer in the 23th minute did not come as a surprise.

Black Rhinos’ Nesbert Padzarondora won the ball outside the box before squaring in a long range shot past Dynamos goalkeeper Artwell Mukandi.

After the breather, Dynamos controlled the game and like in the first half the Harare giants registered their second goal a minute into the second half.

Mushure won possession on the left flank before whipping in a cross which went straight to the to the top corner.

After the goal, both sides squandered a lot of chances.
