Dynamos registered a fifth straight league win when they beat Bulawayo City 4-3 in a thrilling contest at the National Sports Stadium. 

Bulawayo City took a surprise lead in the 7th minute when an alert Rupiya took the ball from Dynamos goalkeeper Mateyaunga as he tried to dribble past the striker.

The lead only lasted a few minutes with Obey Mwerahari equalising just three minutes after with a header from a Peace Makaha free kick.

On the 18th minute Denver Mukamba put Dynamos into the lead when he slotted the ball into the back of the net from Carlos Rusere’s free kick.

Dynamos headed into the halftime break with a deserved lead. Two minutes after the break Rupiya was on the score sheet again when he took full advantage of a lapse of concentration from the Dembare defence to equalise.

Dynamos though refused to back down and Christian Epoupa restored the lead shotting into the roof of the net from inside the area.

Lincolin Zvasiya then made victory sure when he slotted in the fourth into the far left corner after receiving the ball from Denver Mukamba. Bulawayo City did manage to pull another goal back in the 82nd minute but Dynamos had done enough to clinch another three points.

The result take Dynamos into fourth spot with 26 points and if the verdict of the match against Chapungu is in favour of Dembare they could move onto 29 points.
