FC Platinum 2-0 Dynamos
Highlanders 4-1 Tripple B

FC PLATIUM finally broke their Dynamos jinx with a stunning 2-0 win against the Harare side at Mandava Wednesday to leave underfire DeMbare coach, Kalisto Pasuwa on the brink.

And as Dynamos were biting the dust, Highlanders planted four past Tripple B to win 4-1 and move to the top of the standings with 44 points.

Dynamos remained second with 42, the same as Harare City who drew 1-1 with Black Mambas. Platinum, on inferior goal, difference, are also fourth on 42.

Meanwhile, at Mandava, Elvis Moyo blasted home within three minutes of the start after finishing a sweeping move started by Thabani Kamusoko.

Charles Sibanda then sent Dynamos goalkeeper George Chigova the wrong way from the penalty spot after Nelson Maziwisa had been brought down in the box.

Dynamos players had protested the penalty, arguing that the incident had taken place outside the box, but referee Lagoon Chitsa stood his ground although, from a vantage point, the incident looked to have occurred outside the box.

The Zvishavane side were quick off the blocks as coach Lloyd Mutasa sought revenge over the side that fired him in 2011.In that year, Platinum lost 2-0 and 1-0 to concede the title and went down 1-0 and 2-1 last season.

This year, Platinum under former Tenant Chilumba, drew 2-2 in Harare in the reverse fixture.

But on Wednesday, Moyo set them on the road to banishing the ghosts of yesteryear with a stunning left footer from close range.

Sibanda then came close in the seventh minute but drew a top drawer save from Chigova.

Dynamos, without the banned Devon Chafa, lacked grit and imagination in midfield, leaving Kamusoko to control the proceedings.

In one such move, after 17 minutes, Kamusoko released Mazivisa who was brought down before Sibanda safely tucked the ball home.

Try as they might in the second half, there was no way past the Platinum central defensive pairing of skipper Daniel Veremu and the steady Aaron Katebe.

Dynamos coach Kalisto Pasuwa, under fire from the clubs executive and fans, said all hope was not lost.

“We created a few chances here and there, but we were unlucky. I don't want to say much about the penalty,” he said.

For his part, Mutasa was naturally delighted with the win saying: “Credit to the boys for a good performance, they did very well and deserved the three points.

“I feel we can still do better in the next games and we will keep fighting until the end of the season.”

Dynamos vice chairman Webster Chikengezha disappeared after the match after a short chat with the technical team.

Triangle coach Gibson Ntini, whose team thumped Monomotapa 4-0 on Tuesday, watched the match ahead of their showdown with Platinum over the weekend.
