Let’s Look Ourselves In The Mirror – Mutasa
Dynamos Coach Lloyd Mutasa says they need to look themselves in the mirror in their quest to turn their fortunes around after his team failed to create meaningful scoring chances again in a 0-1 defeat against Highlanders at Rufaro Stadium Monday.
Dembare are yet to win a match in four Castle Lager Premiership league outings this season.
“Obviously you cannot win games if you don’t score and the last two games that we played we could not score goals, hence the difference. But I am sure it’s something that we should go back and look at,” said Mutasa.
“I think we have been in this mess before; that is football. It’s not only about Dynamos. This happens worldwide even with big teams like Real Madrid. You hit a bad patch but what matters is the character to bounce back and I am sure we have the capacity to do that,” said Mutasa.
Dynamos have only managed one point from a possible 12 in the drawn game against Shabanie Mine.
But in that match against Shabanie, DeMbare blew a 3-0 lead to eventually draw 3-3 after capitulating in the last 22 minutes of the game.
In Tuesday’s battle of Zimbabwe encounter, they started on the back foot as the equally youthful Highlanders outfit pinned them back in an attacking first half which, however, lacked clear goal scoring opportunities at both ends.
But the Dynamos supporters thought they had found the opener in the 35th minute when Ocean Mushure swung in a free-kick that was deflected to the side net by Bosso skipper, Honest Moyo.
Bosso had the first real attempt on goal after 39 minutes when Ben Musaka, at the back post, cut back Brian Banda’s high ball from a free-kick to force a good save from goalkeeper Tonderai Mateyaunga.
Striker, Gabriel Nyoni wasted the rebound as DeMbare defenders closed in.
But Zibande gave Madinda Ndlovu’s Highlanders “ECD” an important lead on the 45th minute when he tapped in a low cross from MacClive Phiri that made their lives easier going into the break.
