DYNAMOS right back David Kutyauripo is itching for revenge against old enemies Highlanders when the two teams clash in a Castle Premiership match at Rufaro on Sunday.
In addition, Dynamos were on the losing end last Sunday when they went down 1-0 to Masvingo at Mucheke- a result which makes Kutyauripo even more desperate for a win against Bosso.
Highlanders put one over their rivals on April 18 in the Independence Trophy final at the National Sports Stadium in a game where they missed a penalty in regulation time which could have won them the cup.
In the reverse fixture, the two teams drew 0-0 at Barbourfields and Kutyauripo believes this is the right time to stamp their authority on a team that is beset by in-house problems.
“We lost last week in a game we could have won, but come Sunday we will get three points from Highlanders. They beat us at home last time, so we want revenge.
“I am happy that Cuthbert (Malajila) and Washy (Arubi) are back and the spirit in the team is good. We will win,” he said.
Malajila and Arubi missed the loss to Masvingo as they were in Cape Verde for a 2012 Africa Cup of Nations match they lost 2-1.
Highlanders drew 1-1 against Shooting Stars last week with unimpressed fans rioted and smashing the windscreens of the team bus and a vehicle belonging to team manager Jerry Sibanda.
Before the game there was talk of a rift between head coach Mkhuphali Masuku and his assistant Mark Mathe which was confirmed in the Shooting Stars match when Mathe watched the game from the stands.
The executive is also accused of interfering in team selection and issuing instructions to Masuku during games via manager Sibanda.
All this has been denied by the club executive, but they have done nothing to convince the public otherwise save for calling for bans on violent fans.
Dynamos could go into the match seven points behind leaders FC Platinum if Rahman Gumbo’s men beat Gunners in a tricky tie at Lafarge on Saturday which could leave the home side under pressure on Sunday.
In other matches Saturday, resurgent Caps United face Black Mambas at Morris Depot while struggling Zimbabwe Saints are away to Blue Ribbon at Rufaro.
Another Bulawayo side Chicken Inn are also in Harare where they clash with Shooting Stars in a desperate bid to end their five match winless streak.
On Sunday, defending champions Motor Action travel to Luke Masomere’s Shabanie Mine at Maglas while Kiglon host Masvingo.
