Triangle plot Dembare upset

HARARE - Triangle coach Biggie Zuze has warned Dynamos against underestimating his side when the two teams clash in the Castle Premiership today.

The Chiredz-based side have had a very difficult season thus far in the league and are currently one point above the last relegation spot with 24 points from 20 games played so far.

The sugar cane farmers need to start picking up points or else they will be in danger of going down at the end of the season.

Zuze’s charges go into today’s clash against the defending champions at Gibbo Stadium after a 1-0 loss at the hands of Highlanders in midweek and will be hoping to get back to winning ways.

“We need to start to collect maximum points, this is just like any other game. Since the start of the season we knew that we were going to face Dynamos and like any other game we have done our preparations,” Zuze told the Daily News on Sunday.

“We know Dynamos is a big team, but there is no need for them to underestimate us. Underestimation has no place in the game of football as you know every club has its own aims.

“The good thing is that we are playing at home and we hope that our home support will help us.

“We don’t want to put ourselves under unnecessary pressure; our aim is to play our normal game and to be on our best against Dynamos.

“Anything can happen in football, on paper it looks like we are a small team to beat Dynamos but the game of football is played on the field.”

Zuze believes that his team will survive relegation this season as there are still a number of teams bunched together in the lower half of the table.

“If look at the log table, I think more than seven teams are still in the relegation mix and as a team we are confident of surviving the drop and I think we have improved,” he said.

Dynamos are currently on top of the log standing with 36 points, one point ahead of second placed Highlanders.

DeMbare will be hoping to bounce back to winning ways after played to a 1-1 draw with Hwange in their midweek fixture.

With their chief striker Roderick Mutuma suspended the Glamour Boys lacked creativity upfront.

They dominated possession in that match creating numerous scoring chances but their forwards namely Farai Mupasiri, Anesu Gondo and Simba Sithole were wasteful.

In Zvishavane, Highlanders will have to fight off the challenge posed by high flying FC Platinum at Mandava Stadium today.

The platinum miners have been a reformed side since Norman Mapeza took over from Lloyd Mutasa early this month.

Bosso coach Kelvin Kaindu is well aware that they face a FC Platinum backlash and if his players are not geared up for the encounter they will at the end of a thrashing from the home side.
