BATTLE OF FULLBACKS
12 July 2016
WHEN Dynamos face How Mine at Barbourfields on Thursday, it could turn out to be a battle of four fullbacks, key areas of the two teamsâ€™ tactics.
They have fullbacks that enjoy the game more in enemy territory and sometimes it takes another fullback to stop them.
Highly rated Praise Tonha, playing as How Mine rightback, could battle it out with Dynamos left back Ocean Mushure. How Mineâ€™s Qadr Amini comes face to face with inform right back Godknows Murwira.
Tonha and Amini had an unfruitful outing against Harare City at Rufaro on Saturday but Mushure and Murwira were a menace as Dynamos floored Border Strikers 2-0 at the same venue on Sunday.
Tonha told H-Metro that what they needed to improve was converting the chances that come their way.
â€œWe are playing well and we fought hard against Harare City. We were only unfortunate not get the goals we were looking for and that is where we need to improve,â€ he said.
Tonha moved with coach Kelvin Kaindu from Triangle and he believes the Zambian mentor will soon guide the team into the groove.
â€œIt usually happens for every coach when you are still new at a team and trying to build something.
â€œI have personally settled Iâ€™m starting to play well. As a player you must be able to work under any coach and Iâ€™m fortunate I know the coach well.â€
Amini, who loves to attack whenever in possession, says they are on the rise.
â€œThe game was 50-50 because both teams were cautious. In the second half we did better, managed to attack but did not convert the chances that came our way.
â€œThey were not the Harare City that we know. They were very average given that they have players like Ronald Chitiyo who I know can really be a something else on his day. Even a player like Manondo can be a handful but we did not see much of that in our game against them,â€ said Amini.
â€œWe should not take this to the next game against Dynamos. We should just work hard and make sure we deliver the results.â€
