HARARE City marksman Osborne Mukuradare has said he is motivated to face champions Dynamos in a Castle Lager Premiership tie at Rufaro on Wednesday as his side seek to move away from the relegation zone.

City, in ninth place with 34 points with four matches left in the campaign, are aware a victory over DeMbare will help them move closer to the safety zone.

A win will see them the 37 points mark, good enough for a team to, at least, survive the dreaded axe although that will largely depend on results elsewhere.

City are also coming from a demoralising 3-2 defeat to Buffaloes last weekend but Mukuradare who has been enjoying top form since the second half of the season says that defeat has actually given them the resolve ahead of the clash with Dynamos.

"We have been playing well recently and that defeat to Buffaloes was a wake-up call for us.

“We all know we are not yet safe from relegation but we are a team that does well in the face of adversity. What I can say is that we are ready to face Dynamos," said Mukuradare.

Dynamos also survived a scare on Sunday as Chapungu raced into the lead through veteran striker Philip Marufu on 41 minutes before second half substitute Simba Sithole levelled matters on 47 minutes.

The defending champions Dynamos though maintained their place at the top of the log as their nearest rivals ZPC Kariba fell 0-2 to FC Platinum while Caps United were edged 2-1 at Triangle.

Dynamos lead the standings with 50 points, three ahead of nearest rivals ZPC Kariba.

Harare City, however have proved a tougher proposition for Dynamos since their entry into the PSL in 2012.

The two teams have met five teams in the league with Dynamos winning three of those meetings while Harare City won once with the other encounter ending in a stalemate. In the reverse fixture this season, Dynamos triumphed 3-1.

Fixtures: Harare City v Dynamos (Rufaro), Shabanie Mine v How Mine(Maglas), Chicken Inn v Triangle (Hartsfield), Chapungu v Bantu Rover (Ascot Stadium), Chiredzi v Black Rhinos(Gibbo), Caps United v FC Platinum (National Sports Stadium), ZPC Kariba v Buffaloes (Gwanzura), Hwange v Highlanders (Colliery).
