WIN ONLY Gamecocks need to upset Ngezi to stay in contention
be so because we really need to come out of the game with maximum points,” said Mpofu.
This will be the third time City clash with Dynamos to clash this season. City lost 4-3 to DeMbare in the first leg and went on to knock the Harare giants out of the Chibuku Super Cup following a 2-1 win. All the games were played in Harare.
“If you look at the two results we got against Dynamos in Harare, you will realise that we really put up a good fight in Harare and I hope my players will rise against the giants like they did before. Playing at home must an advantage for us,” said Mpofu.
He will bank on experienced defender Zephaniah Ngodzo and Nyasha Mukumbi to marshal the defence, Morris Kadzola, who has been doing well since being moved from right-back to defensive midfield, as well as striker Ishmael Wadi.
However, it is the manner that City goalkeepers Ndodana Sibanda and Liberty Chirava have been conceding “silly goals” that worry Mpofu.
“Our downfall has been conceding easy and soft goals. What we’ve been doing is more like gifting our opponents goals. We have to work on our defending, avoid gifting opponents goals and also ensure that we bury chances we create,” said Mpofu.
With two teams Bantu Rovers and Tsholotsho FC having been relegated, two more will be axed from the topflight and they will come from either Shabanie Mine, Hwange, Bulawayo City, Harare City, Yadah FC, Black Rhinos or Chapungu. — @ZililoR
