DYNAMOS TRIO BACK
27 April 2017
DYNAMOS captain Ocean Mushure, midfielder Gift Saunyama and star Denver Mukamba are back from injury.
The trio started training with the team this week but it is not clear if they will make the team to face How Mine at National Sports Stadium today.
“Ocean is on light training. Saunyama and Denver are also back training with the team but it will be upto the coach to decide if he will use the players for the game against How Mine,” said team manager Richard Chihoro on Wednesday.
Mukamba was pulled out in the Independence Trophy semi-final against CAPS United when he pulled a muscle. He missed the final won by DeMbare and the last league match at the Colliery.
Saunyama received a knock in the cup final against Highlanders and missed the Colliery game. Captain Mushure on the other hand also missed the Hwange tie with a swollen knee.
“He (Ocean) has always had a knee problem but apart from that it is also the ankle,” Chihoro said.
In the absence of Ocean Mushure, DeMbare coach Lloyd Mutasa had used Carlos Rusere on the left back.
Saunyama’s absence forced Mutasa to move Peace Makaha from the right back position to defensive midfield where he partnered Tichaona Chipunza.
Phakamani Dube played right back.
The return of Mukamba, Saunyama, Ocean and Obey Mwerahari could put Mutasa in a dilemma though chances are high he could stick to most of the players that played in Hwange.
Mwerahari was missing in action as a result of a family bereavement.
How Mine coach Kelvin Kaindu has vowed to put a polished performance and upset the giants.
Kaindu is yet to lose a game against Dynamos since he joined the miners last year, drawing all two games last season.
It is also fact that under his guide, How Mine are yet to score a goal against Dynamos and yet to concede any.
But that could change today.
“We have been creating a lot of chances and in our last game we could have led in the first half by four. But we are failing to convert the chances. I’m sure we can do better in the coming matches,” Kaindu told H-Metro this week.
