Dynamos' window of hope

HARARE - With FC Platinum winning their weekend match against Hwange, CAPS United has been put under pressure to win their last game against title chasing ZPC Kariba if they are to finish in the top three.

The above equation is likely to revive Dynamos’ fading hopes of successfully winning their fourth consecutive Castle Lager Premiership title.

The Green Machine dropped two crucial points which could have given them a healthy gap against fourth placed FC Platinum going into their last league match against ZPC.

With the draw Makepekepe remain on third position with 50 points living the platinum miners with a real chance to finish on third position as they are now only two points behind.

Like what happened last season, Dynamos will now be hoping that their city rivals Makepekepe do them a favour by beating ZPC.

The Glamour Boys will be looking to collect three points against How Mine that will help them leap frog ZPC.

Last year, Makepekepe denied Harare City their maiden title after holding them to a two-all draw while Dynamos beat Black Mambas to clinch the title on goal difference.

CAPS United coach Taurai Mangwiro insists that he will adhere to the highest standards of sportsmanship by going for victory when they face ZPC.

“We would want to win as many matches as possible. We will give it our best shot against ZPC, trust me on that one, it won’t be an easy game. It’s not a dead rubber, there is still a lot that we want to prove,” Mangwiro said.

“Saul Chaminuka is the one who brought me into football, he is my mentor, but he has only beaten me once and it would take him a lot to get a positive result against me. He is not going to get three points on a silver platter.

“We will fight, Chaminuka has done a good job for ZPC but do not expect any favours from me. But I don’t believe the league is won by only one match, but it’s what you do throughout the whole season that wins you the title.

Mangwiro added: “If any of the two teams is going to win the league, it’s because of the hard work that they have done, unfortunately we are not going to be on that podium.

“Expect us to play a fair game and I want to assure all the fans that ZPC were doing their business on their own and I don’t think they need any favours from us.”

Mangwiro said Makepekepe are aiming to finish the season strongly hence they need maximum points against ZPC.

“We would want to have a strong finish and we want to win our remaining game. I’m sure it would cement our place for a very strong finish,” he said.

“Our aim has been to win our own matches and not worry much what the others are doing. We have been playing well but the results haven’t been reflecting that.”

Daily news - this is rubbish. Where is it written that Dynamos must always win the title? The writer here is very biased. This philosophy of saying someone , somehow must always win destroyed our country. This is hogwash.
