Dynamos coach Lloyd Mutasa has admitted that that the Sunday’s Harare Derby will be a tough one.

The Harare giants suffered a blow when two of their influential players, defender Lincoln Zvasiya and midfielder Tichaona Chipunza were suspended. Christian Epoupa is likely to miss out too after PSL’s decision to uphold his red card.

Speaking to the Herald, Mutasa said he is expecting a tough encounter.

“It’s another tough encounter against a good Caps United side, who are doing well at the moment, but I am sure we are preparing well for that tie as well.” he said.

“We would want to try and maximise, try and get an advantage.

“We have been talking about an element of not counting chickens before they are hatched,’’ said the coach.

He also said there was disappointment after the draw against Highlanders.

“The youngsters felt disappointed to collect a point. It’s an indication that they are hungry and ready to change that by bouncing back against Caps United.

“It is a game in hand, these are the games we were talking about that they don’t count for points. We know what we want to play for.

“We are two points behind the leading pack and we want to get back to winning ways. We would want to at one for the draw and quickly bounce to winning ways,” said Mutasa.
