LOG-LEADERS Dynamos faces a stern test as they travel to face Norman Mapeza's FC Platinum at Mandava Stadium on Saturday.

The champions however, maintain that their inactivity last weekend will not affect the team’s momentum.

Dynamos were not taking part in the Chibuku Super Cup quarter-finals after being knocked out by Black Rhinos in the first round.

Team manager Richard Chihoro said there could be some benefits from the break.

“We were doing very well and we would have wanted to go on and on and then there was this break. It kills the momentum obviously, but it also gives time for the boys to recharge their batteries,” Chihoro said.

“It gives players time to recover from their knocks. It actually makes players to be more hungry to want to look forward to the next match.”

“The only way we will find out if the break was bad or good is when we play our next match,” added Chihoro, revealing that all his players but Masimba Mambare were fully fit and available for selection for the team’s next assignment.

He said Mambare, who has started light training, could join the rest of the squad in training next week as he continues his rehabilitation from a knee injury he suffered in March.

Dynamos have 42 points, three more than second-placed Highlanders with just eight matches still to play before the season ends.

FC Platinum, the Zvishavane-based side now under Norman Mapeza, have been in action in the last two weeks, playing in the ZNA Charities Shield final and the Chibuku Super Cup quarter-finals, and winning both encounters.

Highlanders are also on the road next weekend as they travel to face Harare City who have not lost a match since Masimba Dinyero took over.


Saturday: Chicken Inn v Bantu Rovers (Hartsfield Stadium), FC Platinum v Dynamos (Mandava Stadium), Harare City v Highlanders (Rufaro Stadium), Chiredzi v Shabanie Mine (Chishamiso Stadium).

Sunday: Caps United v How Mine v (Rufaro Stadium), Buffaloes v Triangle United v Sakubva Stadium, Hwange v Chapungu (Colliery Stadium), ZPC Kariba v Black Rhinos TBA
