Dynamos, CAPS to field weak sides

HARARE - Harare giants CAPS United and Dynamos warned they are likely to field weakened sides in Sunday’s Zimbabwe National Army Commanders Charity Shield semi-final.

The two teams meet on Sunday at Rufaro Stadium which would be the third Harare derby during this pre-season.

Interestingly, when the Premier Soccer League action starts two weeks from now, it will be another Harare derby in Week Four when the two teams clash again.

CAPS coach Mark Harrison says Sunday’s game will not be much of a priority as they are moving to strengthen their team ahead of the new season. 

“It’s not an ideal situation; I have to be honest with you. We are preparing for Whawha that is our main priority and the game on Sunday will not be my priority,” Harrison said after his team’s training session yesterday.

“The game on Sunday will be probably a mix of young players and fringe players because we have a friendly on Saturday where we would play our strong team.

“Those games take a lot of drain out of the players mentally and physically. That doesn’t help your preparations.”

Dynamos assistant coach Tonderai Ndiraya said: “As big teams you, don’t want to play each other week in, week out, you always want the derby to have that glamour.”
