DYNAMOS are keen to extend their eight-year PSL dominance over traditional rivals Highlanders when the two sides meet at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.

Highlanders have not beaten Dynamos since 2006 when they completed a double over the Harare giants and went on to win their last league title.

Making it more painful for Highlanders this year is that they have finished as runners up to champions Dynamos in the past two seasons.

Dynamos team manager Richard Chihoro said after falling to Hwange at the weekend, Dynamos want to pick themselves up by beating Highlanders and maintain their supremacy over their old foes.

“We have put behind us the loss to Hwange and we are now focusing on the future. We have Highlanders visiting us and that is where our minds are focused,” Chihoro said.

“It is our policy here at Dynamos that we are not allowed to be beaten by Highlanders. It is unacceptable.

“But it will not be easy for us because they really want to beat us since it has been long since they did that. We have started preparing for them.”

Dynamos are battling for the return of injured inspirational midfielder Tawanda Muparati who has started training.

Elsewhere, Caps United captain Tapiwa Khumbuyani feels it was high time they started picking up points on the road when they visit struggling Chiredzi United on Sunday.

The Harare giants have been impressive at home but have not picked up a single point outside Harare so far this season.

Losses to FC Platinum, Highlanders, How Mine and Chapungu have asserted Caps United as bad travellers.

“It is a job well done to the boys for making our home a fortress and that has always been the plan not to drop points in our own backyard. We have to keep it that way,” Khumbuyani said.

“But we are all worried we have not been doing well away. We need to work on that and start picking up points away.

“We hope to start that by winning our next match when we go to Chiredzi. We all know it is a responsibility and it is up to us to make it happen.”

Chiredzi anchor the log standings and their eagerness to tie could make life difficult for Caps.
