Dynamos 0-1 Buffaloes

DYNAMOS’ woes can only get worse.

On their return from a midweek loss to Chapungu, fans were expecting an immediate response, but Luke Masomere has perfected the art of beating Dynamos in the last two seasons and did that with a first half goal to earn three points.

This was Dynamos’ second loss in a row leaving them perched in eighth place on the league table, three away points from leaders Highlanders who crushed Caps United 4-0 at Barbourfields.

Last season, Shabanie beat Dynamos 4-2 on penalties in the BancABC Super Eight semi-finals in Bulawayo and even before Sunday’s match, Masomere had stated that he had plan for the defending league champions.

Roy Mwenga scored the priceless goal that pushed Buffaloes to fourth place on the log standings and, try as they evidently did, the defending champions were simply off colour.

Dynamos started with the usual two strikers, Washington Pakamisa and Anesu Gondo, and the chances came, but they could not convert.

Tafadzwa Rusike created some space after being sent through, but hit the side netting and it all looked like Dynamos were on their way to find an opener.

But when Buffaloes were awarded a corner three minutes into first half added time, they made use of it. Roy Mwenga popped up at the corner to head home unmarked after the Dynamos defence had gone to sleep.

The visitors then frustrated Dynamos with defensive play and time wasting tactics, like Masomere had said they had a plan, and all that paid off.

Walter Mukanga had the ball in the back of the net, but was given out for offside by referee Norman Matemera leaving the Dynamos faithful frustrated.

And Dynamos thought they had won a penalty late in the second half for a handful, but the referee stood firm and coach Callisto Pasuwa was left to rue another day in the office.

Weekend reports said there was a fall-out between the coach and club chairman Kenny Mubaiwa and, while there was no immediate confirmation of that, last weeks’ trip to Gweru revealed some of the problems.

Dynamos travelled to Gweru on the day of the match against Chapungu and the players were reportedly given $5 as allowances for refreshments.
