Umbro's bullish vow

HARARE - With Dynamos seemingly out of the Castle Lager Premiership title race, their assistant coach Gift ‘Umbro’ Muzadzi hopes to reward their loyal fans by winning the Chibuku Super Cup.

The Glamour Boys face Harare City in the final of the Chibuku Super Cup tomorrow at the National Sports Stadium and Muzadzi believes their supporters, who have stood by their team through some challenging times this season, deserve the cup more.

Dynamos are six points behind log leaders Chicken Inn with four matches left before the season comes to an end.
Although the league title looks beyond their reach, the Harare giants could still end the season with some silverware if they defeat City tomorrow.

The Chibuku Super Cup gives passage to competing in the Caf Confederations Cup.
And addressing a press conference in the capital yesterday, Muzadzi affirmed that the support that they have received from their fans is motivating them to do well in tomorrow’s final.

“We want our fans to come in their numbers. We want to dedicate this cup to them, it’s their cup,” said Muzadzi.
“One thing that I can tell them is that they should come in their numbers and witness one of the best cup finals in recent years. We will not let them down. We are going to give it our all on Saturday because it’s for our fans.

“If there is one thing that we are going to do on Saturday, it’s that we will ‘die’ for the fans. We are definitely going to deliver. There is no doubt that our fans have been there for us in good and bad times and that’s the only way we can repay them.
“That’s what keeps us going and we have to give back to everyone who has supported us by going to the finals and make sure we win the trophy. It’s not easy but with the support from our fans we can do it.”

With the Glamour Boys appearing to be struggling in front of goal in their recent Premiership matches, Muzadzi said they have rectified their shortcomings and expect a polished performance upfront against City.
“We are expecting goals this time around. Remember this is a cup final and there is no room for mistakes, so we need to be careful. We have been working on all the aspects of the game and we expect to come out tops,” he said.

“It will however, not be an easy match. Remember City are a good side and they are also eager to win. We played twice this season and both matches ended in draws so you can see it will be a close encounter.”
In-form striker Roderick Mutuma remains a big doubt for Saturday’s game and will need to pass a late fitness test to be considered for the game.

Mutuma picked up a groin injury whilst on duty with the national team in Maseru, Lesotho last weekend.

The race is still on for three top teams, and it will foolish if Dynamos start surrendering now, the best way is .. play your normal games like what you did the beginning of the season.
