Dynamos 1-1 Shabanie Mine

DYNAMOS were held at home by bogey side Shabanie Mine on Wednesday allowing championship rivals Highlanders to go top of the table with two games remaining before the curtain comes down on the season.

DeMbare coach, Callisto Pasuwa, was disappointed with the 1-1 draw which saw his side drop into second place on the table with 50 points, the same as Harare City and one behind Highlanders.

The defending champions must now win their remaining two games, away to Chicken Inn and at home to Black Mambas and hope their rivals drop points in order to retain the championship.

“It’s becoming difficult for us to play at home now,” said Pasuwa.

“We missed many chances in this game and I have been talking to the guys about these last games. These are games of chances and we need to convert them. If you miss a chance you could be punished.”

The Harare side has found it tough against Shabanie this season after drawing the reverse league fixture 1-1. Shabanie also dumped DeMbare out of the BancABC Sup8r at the semi-final stage.

“Like in the previous cup game against Shabanie, we were leading 1-0 but they equalised and we tend to lack concentration in the dying minutes of these matches,” said Pasuwa.

Tichaona Mabvura gave Dynamos the lead in the 56th minute when, finishing off an attack initiated by midfielder Cliff Sekete and also involving Washington Pakamisa.

But Shabanie evened the score when Fungai Chirinda beat Dynamos goalkeeper George Chigova in the 73rd minute after some good work by Pervington Zimunya on the right.

Pasuwa lamented the impact of key injuries to key players but also questioned the application of those available for selection.

“The other problem we are facing is that we are changing players nearly every week,” he said.

“We would have wanted to have those three points coming into the bag but we missed chances that we should have buried.

“It is very unfortunate and tough luck to Dynamos and good play from Shabanie because they picked a point away from home.

“If you look at the attitude of some of the players like Russell (Madamombe) who replaced Tawanda (Muparati), you could see that he was not quite in the game for the few minutes that he played.

“It’s one of those things in a game and we need players with character for us to win this championship.”

For his opposite number Luke Masomere however, it was an important point gained in a difficult away fixture.

“I think we played well and according to our game plan. We knew that Dynamos are a very good side and have quality players who could trouble us if given room to play,” he said.

“What I really want to achieve is a top eight finish and we have collected a point and should be going up. Now we aim to collect three points against Triangle at home although they are a good side.

“We should play another good game against Highlanders in Bulawayo.”
