DeMbare Suffers Blow Ahead Of Derby

Harare football giants, Dynamos’ title hopes is under threat after defense stalwart, Sydney Linyama has been ruled out due to an ankle injury, Sportbrief has learnt.  

The centre back, Linyama joins the duo of Elisha Muroiwa, who is suspended and Captain Augustine Mbara, a long-term absentee. The injury to Linyama means he will not participate in the Harare derby on Sunday.

Contacted for comment, Dynamos coach Tonderai Ndiraya said that he had enough cover to compensate for the missing services of the trio.

The Dembare gaffer could be forced to deploy Obey Mwerahari and Godknows Murwira as cover, while Stephen Alimenda has played in that position before.

Matches against Caps carry a lot of weight and a defeat on Sunday could intensify pressure on Ndiraya, especially after his side failed to win the Chibuku Super Cup last Sunday.

DeMbare face a Caps United side hard-pressed to prove a point against a side that they have failed to beat in the last six years.

Caps United coach, Lloyd Chitembwe is aiming for a top four finish, but believes his team should be targeting for honours and knows a good performance will thrust the green army of the Caps fans into the festive mood.

The former Caps United midfielder, who fought many battles against Dynamos in his career as a player, is the last Makepekepe coach to beat Dynamos in a league match, way back in April 2009.

Caps United have been struggling for goals and drew their last two matches against Harare City 0-0 and Flame Lily 1-1.

The Green Machine were, however, fretting over the fitness of chief striker, Leonard Tsipa.

Chitembwe remains confident he will shrug off the injury and play against Dynamos.

Dynamos on the other hand, will be without Muroiwa, who is serving a suspension for accumulating three yellow cards.

Ndiraya acknowledged that they faced an important fixture against the backdrop of a defeat in the Chibuku Super Cup.

“It’s a challenge to be facing Caps coming from a defeat in the Chibuku Super Cup. We have been psyching up the players so that they get over the disappointment of losing to Harare City in the Chibuku Super Cup.

We have a good record against Caps United and we want to try and maintain that dominance,” he said.

Dynamos, who are six points off the top in the title race, believe they still have a mathematical chance of laying their hands on the league title for an unprecedented fifth successive year.

    I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear
    your head before writing. I have had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first
    10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any ideas or hints?

  • September 21, 2016 at 07:14

    the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you,

    do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side effect ,
    people can take a signal. Will probably be back to get more.

    added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I recieve four emails with the exact same comment.
    Perhaps there is an easy method you are able to remove me from that service?
