DYNAMOS coach Tonderai Ndiraya milked the occasion as the Glamour Boys rode on Evans Katema’s solitary goal to beat traditional rivals Highlanders in the Anti-Sanctions Challenge Cup match at the National Sports Stadium yesterday.
Bosso had beaten Dynamos three times this year in different competitions.
But the Bulawayo giants, with a diabolical fixture congestion which saw them travel to Kariba for a midweek league match, before they face FC Platinum in a Chibuku Super Cup quarter-final tomorrow, turned to their youth brigade.
DeMbare fielded some of their regulars, including skipper Godfrey Mukambi and striker Katema, and found a way to win a tight encounter.
Ndiraya said what mattered was that they won the game.
“What is important is that we have won. How we have done that it doesn’t matter,’’ he said.
‘’But I think what’s way important than just the game is why we are here. I think we all know what we are here for.
“The significance of the event carries the day more than anything else. But, in terms of performance, I think it has taken a long time before we broke the jinx.
“Of course, it had to be broken on this occasion and that makes it sweeter. From a technical point, we had to give some of our fringe players a run and to mix, of course, with the next match in mind.
“I am quite happy with the performance, although, I would have wanted more. What was important was the win so that we bring back the confidence not just to the players but the team as a whole.’’
Ndiraya then saluted his opponents.State media
