Home » Sports » Yet Another Pasuwa, Mutasa Clash

DYNAMOS coach Callisto Pasuwa has demanded a change of approach from his charges as the Glamour Boys battle to turn around a poor run this afternoon when they host FC Platinum at the National Sports Stadium.

DeMbare have gone for three league games without winning in the league putting their campaign in defence of their title in danger as they are now four points behind leaders Hwange after seven rounds.

The loss to CAPS United in the Zimbabwe National Army Charities semi-final match on Sunday has also compounded their woes as they completed 360 minutes of open play without finding the target.

Pasuwa returned to the team’s dressing room yesterday from national team duty and challenged his players to adopt a positive attitude as they seek to spring back to winning ways.

DeMbare also welcomed back the trio of George Chigova, Partson Jaure and Stephen Alimenda who were also part of the Warriors side that lost 0-1 in Tanzania in a Nations Cup tie.

“I have been talking to the boys and the match they played against CAPS United is one those games,” said Pasuwa.

“Yes, we lost, and it was the same old story. We are conceding goals and most of these games we are losing 1-0 because we are also not scoring.

a”That’s one area we have been working on so that we start scoring again. With the right attitude we are in good position to claim maximum points.”

DeMbare have been playing second fiddle to the platinum miners since last year when their former son Lloyd Mutasa joined the ambitious side.

“This is a new game altogether. It’s another 90 minutes that we are going to play and we can’t talk of what happened in the past,” said Pasuwa.

“We have some guys who were injured and most of them are not yet back but the three guys that were with the national team are all available for selection.” Mutasa was in good spirits following the morale-boosting 3-2 win over Highlanders at their Barbourfields fortress.

“I think we are getting used to playing under such (hostile) conditions. You saw it during the Independence Cup final at the National Sports Stadium and at the weekend as well when we were in Bulawayo against Highlanders.

“Despite playing away we still managed to dominate possession on both occasions and coming out victorious.

“It was difficult, though, and we expect it to be tough again this time but obviously we look forward to be victorious again,” said Mutasa.
