Lifeline for DeMbare

RUSAPPE - Kelvin Bulaji and Takesure Chinyama’s goals either side of the half handed Dynamos a hard-fought 2-1 win over already relegated Dongo Sawmill to revive their quest to defend their Castle Lager Premiership title.

With Chicken Inn and FC Platinum both failing to win yesterday, it opened the door on the Glamour Boys, who are now four points behind the log leaders on 51 points.

Dynamos had to endure long spells of Dongo pressure in the opening minutes but did well to keep the scoreline at 0-0.

After absorbing the hosts’ early pressure, DeMbare took the lead in the 28th minute through Bulaji after some good work by Chinyama, who beat three Dongo defenders before releasing Ronald Chitiyo on the right.

Chitiyo sent in an inch perfect cross and Bulaji headed home to give the visitors the lead.

From there on, DeMbare were on top of the situation but they failed to turn their dominance into more goals.

As a result, they allowed Dongo to regain control of the match shortly before the halftime break.

With DeMbare enjoying more of the possession, Dongo began to create chances on the break and it was no surprise when Tatenda Kateguru equalised shortly before the halftime break.

The DeMbare defence failed to deal with a long ball into their box allowing Kateguru the opportunity to flick it past goalkeeper Tonderai Mateyaunga as the two teams went into the break tied.

After the breather, Dynamos immediately restored their lead in the 46th minute when Chinyama fired past Dongo goalkeeper Farai Samunyayi.

There were no more goals after that but Dongo would live to rue the chance they missed in the remainder of the match.

Dynamos coach Tonderai Ndiraya was pleased with the way his side handled the early pressure from the hosts before going on to collect all three points.

“It was a difficult match. Vengere is a difficult stadium. The pitch is bumpy and Dongo know the pitch well and use it to their advantage,” Ndiraya said.

Dongo gaffer Shadreck Magurasave was for the umpteenth time cursing his side’s failure to convert.

“We have been failing to convert our chances all season.

“We have been creating chances whether we were playing at home or away but failing to convert them into goals but we will fight until the end.

“We have two games left in the premier league but we will not give them away,” Magurasave said.

Dynamos should win their last two games and snatch the premier league from either chicken inn or platinum . That will be a very sweet and juicy victory
