DYNAMOS will be aiming to bounce back from their 4-2 mauling by Hwange on Wednesday when they engage relegation-threatened Monomotapa in Harare on Sunday.

Highlanders, who moved into second on the Premier League table after beating FC Platinum 2-1 on the same day, are breathing down on their necks but have a tricky fixture against Buffaloes – a side that handed Dynamos their first defeat of the season at Sakubva in Mutare.

Dynamos assistant coach Richard Chihoro said: “We need to remain focused and it’s even more dangerous when we play a team that is in the relegation zone like Monomotapa. So we need to win and keep focusing on our games and not Highlanders or Harare City.”

Monomotapa coach Biggie Zuze, whose side picked up their first point in six league matches in Thursday’s 1-1 draw with Tripple B, is aware of the huge task ahead.

“It’s a massive game in our fight against relegation and I think the boys will give it their best fight. There are a lot of money problems at the club, but we just have to keep on going and fight on,” he said.

Highlanders face a potential banana skin at Sakubva but will be buoyed by the return to form of veteran striker Njabulo Ncube, who has scored three times in the last two matches against Triangle and FC Platinum.

At the same time, Buffaloes have not lost at home since Timothy Masachi took over from Saul Chaminuka and will be looking for the scalp of another title-chasing giant.

Harare City, sitting in third place, are at Luveve Stadium on Saturday when they engage a Kuda Mahachi-led resurgent Chicken Inn and any loss will spell disaster for Bigboy Mawiwi’s men.

City sit on 40 points in third position, the same as Highlanders but Mawiwi knows that after the 1-1 midweek draw against Shabanie Mine, there is no more room for mistakes.

“Against Shabanie, we played very well created the chances but failed to score and that cost us. But now we are coming up against an even stronger side where we cannot afford to make mistakes. We need to win the game,” Mawiwi said ahead of their departure to Bulawayo on Friday.

Driven by Mahachi and underrated midfielders Canaan Nkomo and Warriors fringe player Danny Phiri, Chicken Inn are seeking a top four finish.

They drew 0-0 with Motor Action in Harare and sit in sixth place with 35 points, one behind fourth placed Caps United.

“Confidence is high after the draw in Harare and on returning home, we must win the game to keep sight of our goals. It is not going to be easy because Harare City are chasing the championships an dropped two points on Wednesday, but we will be ready for them,” said Chicken Inn assistant coach Mkhuphali Masuku.
