HARARE – Dynamos’ lifeless performance in recent matches has left even the meekest of Castle Premiership teams sensing an opportunity to feed off the Zimbabwe champions.
Indeed, vultures have been circling the Glamour Boys, who are yet to win a single match this month throwing their championship quest into turmoil.
Dynamos have only picked up a single point in a 0-0 draw with Monomotapa while losing to Hwange and FC Platinum in their last three games.
That poor run has also seen the record Zimbabwe champions lose top spot on the log to Highlanders, who now enjoy a two-point lead at the summit.
It is not only in the league that Dynamos are looking feeble at present, last weekend the Glamour Boys were knocked out of the Mbada Diamonds Cup by league debutants How Mine at the quarterfinal stage.
Calisto Pasuwa’s men seem to have lost their aura of invisibility after also going out of the BancABC Sup8r Cup at the hands of eventual winners Shabanie Mine in the semis.
Now, for the first time in three years, DeMbare is starring down the barrow of finishing the league empty handed if they do not stop their recent decline.
Dynamos have their first chance to redeem themselves Sunday afternoon when they host relegation threatened Tripple B at Rufaro Stadium.
The Beitbridge-based side is, however, relishing their own chance of compounding Dynamos into deeper troubles with an upset win this afternoon.
This afternoon’s match would ordinarily have been expected to be a one-sided affair but the lack of form that has left the Dynamos family deeply divided has given Tripple B some hope.
The Beitbridge-based side feel today is an opportunity to make a loud statement against a dejected and desperate Dynamos outfit.
“We are positive that we are going to win. We need the three points,” Tripple B coach Peter Manoti told the Daily News on Sunday.
“We should have won against Dynamos in the Mbada Diamonds Cup first round, but we were unlucky to lose 1-0.
“But this time we are ready. The players are motivated after all players need little motivation when they face the champions.
“We are not buying too much into Dynamos problems we just want to win.”
Tripple B, who are just second from the bottom on the log and need to collect maximum points in their remaining six matches, said they are going to go all out attack against the rattled defending champions.
“We are not going to sit back, but we are going all out in attack. This is not to say we won’t defend but we need all three points,” said Manoti.
“They can take us for granted at their own risk.”
Sunday: Shabanie Mine v Monomotapa (Maglas), How Mine v Harare City (Luveve), Buffaloes v Motor Action (Sakubva), Black Rhinos v Highlanders (Rimuka), Triangle United v FC Platinum (Gibbo), Dynamos v Tripple B (Rufaro).
