Ntouba Bounces Back As Dembare Face Chapungu In 36 Minute Rematch


By Terrence Mawawa| Popular Harare Giants Dynamos FC will take on Chapungu FC in a replay that will be played for 36 minutes following the abandonment of a fixture between the two sides.

Star forward, Christian Joel Epoupa Ntouba will feature in the Dynamos starting line up because all the players who featured in the abandoned match are eligible to play.Ntouba was sent off in the crunch battle of Zimbabwe between Dynamos and Highlanders.

Dembare were leading 4-0 when the game was abandoned.The 36 minute match will be played at Ascot Stadium in Gweru at 3pm today.

Although soccer matches are usually difficult to predict the Glamour Boys are the odds on favourites to collect maximum points.

Waru Waru as Chapungu are affectionately called by their fans are unlikely to stop Dembare.

Chapungu must score four goals in 36 minutes to salvage a point from the game.

Lloyd Mutasa, the Dynamos mentor said he would field the deadly Cameroonian striker, Ntouba in today’ s fixture.

Mutasa said it would be risky to underrate Chapungu.

“We will field the best possible team because we want to consolidate our lead,” the soft spoken Mutasa told ZBC Television on Monday.

If Dembare, who are currently third placed on the PSL log, maintain the lead they will shoot to the summit of the table.

Dembare have amassed 49 points and they are likely to take their tally to 52 points after today’s replay.
