Tonderai Ndiraya has started his reign at Dynamos with a 1-1 draw against TelOne at Barbourfields Stadium.
The Glamour Boys came from behind and snatched a vital point which ended their four-match losing streak across all competitions.
The hosts broke the deadlock on the stroke of half time after Munyaradzi Mawadza failed to clear the ball and miscued it past his goalkeeper.
The goal left Dembare ruing their missed chances which could have seen them taking the lead moments before. Jarison Selemani and Tawanda Macheke were the chief suspects as they wasted some glorious opportunities.
Nonetheless, they restored the parity ten minutes into the second period when Cameronian Vincent Mbega curled home a free-kick a few yards from the edge of the box.
The visitors, however, were reduced to ten men on the 70th minute when Godfrey Mukambi was sent off after headbutting Tafadzwa Sibanda in retaliation to the later’s challenge. But they almost grabbed the lead ten minutes to full-time when Mbega hit the upright from a set-piece.
The game ended with both teams sharing the spoils.
