DeMbare on course for top four finish

TRIANGLE - Dynamos edged Triangle 1-0 yesterday in a tightly-contested Castle Lager Premiership match at Gibbo Stadium to strengthen their hopes of at least making a top four finish.

A Godknows Murwira 74th minute strike after being gifted a loose ball in a Triangle defensive mix-up was enough to give DeMbare their second consecutive win after two frustrating stalemates.

Dynamos are now on 46 points and now lead fifth-placed Chicken Inn by two points with only one game to go before the season comes to an end.

With chances few and wide apart, the Sugar farmers felt hard done with the soft goal which compounds their coach’s woes after a string of poor results.

Dynamos coach Lloyd Mutasa hopes yesterday’s performance can be used to divine DeMbare’s future.

“This is the future of the team going forward. This is the picture of the team going forward. We really want to give it a go,” he said.

“We have the likes of Elisha Muroiwa coming up from injury to add another dimension. From the last four games we drew the first two against Hwange and CAPS and we won the two. I think eight points out of a possible 12 is not bad but I’m sure it’s a positive sign going forward.

“It hasn’t been rosy for us this year but I’m sure if we are united and push in the same direction as Dynamos we can bounce back.”

The hosts’ coach David Yogi Mandigora was devastated with the loss.

“I thought we were going to give our supporters a good game by winning but things didn’t work in our favour. I’m also disappointed by the result and the way we conceded the goal. It was a soft goal. But I think we tried our best but we couldn’t use our chances,” he said.
