PSL title fight resumes

HARARE - Reigning league champions Dynamos shift their attention to the championship race this afternoon hoping to collect maximum points and maintain their lead at the top of the log.

The Glamour Boys will resume their battle to defend their domestic crown they have won for the past three years when they host relegation threatened Chiredzi FC at Rufaro Stadium.

Buoyed by their weekend 2-0 win over How Mine in the One Wallet Cup semi-final, the Harare giants will be aiming to continue from where they left off.

Dynamos team manager Richard Chihoro was beaming with confidence after the victory over How Mine, although he is adamant that the run-in will have plenty more twists and turns for the title chasing teams.

“It’s going to be a tough game and a good challenge – but they will not find it easy either,” Chihoro told the Daily News yesterday.

“We will give as good as we get. We need to work extra hard because these bottom teams are difficult. They are fighting relegation and they will not make life easy for us. 

“As Dynamos we are always under pressure to win and we have been telling our players to guard against complacency. This is the crucial stage in the championship race and we can’t afford any slip ups.

“I think this is the period where our experience should come in hand,” he added.

The Glamour Boys are likely to welcome back the duo of Roderick Mutuma and skipper Murape Murape, who missed the One Wallet Cup at the weekend.

The two players were involved in a training ground altercation recently, leading to their suspension, before the club’s leadership had a change of heart and nullified the ban but they could not make the team to Zvishavane.

The Lowveld side, who have struggled in their first year in the Premiership are anchoring the 16-team table but they will not be pushovers when they face the champions.

Chiredzi only have 11 points from 21 matches having won just two, drawn five and lost 14 thus far this season.

The team recently appointed former Triangle coach Gishon Ntini to lead them after the club’s leadership parted ways with Moses Chunga, who have since found new job at the army side Buffaloes.

Elsewhere this afternoon, Highlanders will be hoping to keep pressure on log leaders when they host Buffaloes at Harstfield Ground.

The match will also see Chunga taking charge of his first match for the army side since he joined the Mutare based side last week.

Triangle hosts FC Platinum while Masimba Dinyero’s Harare City will be hoping to continue with their revival when they travel to Rimuka to face Black Rhinos.
