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
