DYNAMOS have vowed to defend their Independence Cup trophy as they prepare to face Harare City for the right to play in the final.

The two city rivals face off in one of the semi-finals at Rufaro on Sunday with Bulawayo giants Highlanders hosting Zvishavane based side FC Platinum at Barbourfields the same day.

The Independence Cup tournament is now the official opening match of the season. Previously, the Net One Charity Shield has been the traditional season opener.

"It has been disappointing to be knocked out of the African Champions League again," said team manager Richard Chihoro.

"We have now shifted focus to the domestic campaign and we want to do well and try to collect every trophy on offer so the Independence Trophy is one of our targets.

“We want to defend this cup. It will not be easy against Harare City but we need to bring back smiles to our fans by defending this trophy."

Harare City coach Bigboy Mawiwi was equally upbeat about the weekend encounter.

"It will be interesting to play in this tournament," he said.

"It's our first time to play in a top four tournament and while we respect Dynamos, they should not expect an easy game. Our aim is to reach the final of this tournament as well."

Dynamos were booted out of the African Champions League by AS Vita of the Democratic Republic of Congo.

Winners of these semi-finals are set to play in the final in Harare on 18 April with the losers playing for a third place play off in Bulawayo at Barbourfields the same day.
