Dynamos Maintain Clean Record in Top Zimbabwe Soccer League

Dynamos are on top of the table by virtue of a superior goal difference after scoring four goals without conceding any.

Dynamos are on top of the table by virtue of a superior goal difference after scoring four goals without conceding any.

Dynamos have kept a clean record since the start of the 2015 Castle Lager Premier Soccer League season two weeks ago.

The defending champions have shot to the top of the 16-team assembly after a hard fought 1-0 win over Chapungu at Ascot Stadium before a full house.

A 15th goal from Ronald Chitiyo gave the Zimbabwean champions maximum points, pushing them to six points in two games and top of the table, just above Caps United who are also on six points.

Dynamos, however, are top of the table by virtue of a superior goal difference after scoring four goals without conceding reply.

On the other hand, the Green Machine who beat FC Platinum yesterday have scored three goals and conceded one.

This is Dynamos’ best start to the season in the past four years that they have won the league title and bookmakers are already offering odds that Dynamos will be crowned champions again this season.

CAPS UNITED TRANSFORMATION

However, Dynamos should be wary of Caps United who have transformed under English coach Mark Harrison.

Harrison has also brought back to the Green Machine veterans Leonard Tsipa and Ashley Rambanepasi and he feels experience will count in the end.

Caps United are in second position by virtue of their 1-0 win over FC Platinum but the miners’ coach Norman Mapeza is unfazed by his team’s poor start to the season.

Overnight leaders Triangle could only stutter to a one-all draw away at Vengere Stadium to Buffaloes.

The two points dropped have also seen the Sugar Sugar boys drop to third on the league table.

HIGHLANDERS WIN

But there were good news for Highlanders who managed a 1-0 win over Tsholotsho while another Bulawayo side How Mine had a fruitful trip to Vengere Stadium where they upended newly promoted Dongo Sawmills 2-1.

This is Highlanders first win of the season and the Bulawayo giants are now in ninth position with the same number of points as Chicken Inn, Tsholotsho and Harare City.

Coach Bongani Mafu says the win is what they required to lift their spirits.

However, Tsholotsho coach Lizwe Sweswe says they were not disgraced.

But the talk of the football fraternity was how ZPC Kariba fought back from 3-1 goals down to pick up a valuable point following 3-all draw against Hwange at the Colliery.

There was also good news for Harare City who picked up their first set of maximum points with a hard fought 2-0 win over visiting Chicken Inn.

The battle for supremacy within the Zimbabwe Prisons ended in a one-all draw as Flame Lilly and Hwahwa Prisons could not break each other with Flame Lilly coach Nesbert Saruchera saying it was a fair result.
