Winless Mutasa Remains Positive

Dynamos remain winless after six rounds of matches but Coach Lloyd Mutasa is hopeful their fortunes will change.

So much was expected of Dembare at the start of the season by their largely vocal fans and all they have to show so far is just three points in six matches.

Sunday was another all-time low for the former champions as they laboured to a 1-1 draw with Yadah at Rufaro Stadium. Although victory keeps evading them, DeMbare coach Lloyd Mutasa still sounded positive at the end of the game.

“It’s a point gained, but we feel we had some few chances that if we could have buried. We should have come out with three points, but such is the nature of football. We will go back to the drawing board and work in terms of our finishing.

“Obviously, as a coach or as a team, every game that you play you would want to come out victorious, but such is the nature of the game.

“We are not happy, we are still in search of those three points and I am sure it’s just a matter of breaking the duck. Just look at the creativity, the chances that came our way and the conversion rate is not directly proportional,” said Mutasa.

Dynamos found themselves trailing early in the game when Mavhunga drilled home an exquisite goal inside the box from a move he had started after winning a tussle with the Dynamos skipper Ocean Mushure at the centre.

The goal appeared to deflate Mutasa’s men, who had not won a match in the opening five assignments of the season.

Yadah had the better chances in the first half, but Morris Musiyakuvi failed to put away a good cross from Mavhunga and Simba Sithole also came close with a spectacular bicycle kick.

But Kumwala fluffed DeMbare’s best chance when he missed a header with an open goal at his mercy from a Valentine Kadonzvo cross just before the interval but he redeemed himself after the breather when he won possession just outside the box and unleashed a rising shot that gave Yadah Keeper Stephen Chimusoro no chance. However, DeMbare could not find the winner and they are still wallowing at the bottom end of the table with three points from six starts.
