DYNAMOS are set to leave for Gaborone, Botswana by road on and on a donated bus Thursday morning for their African Champions League preliminary round, second leg tie against Mochudi Centre Chiefs on Sunday.
The Zimbabwe champions go into the match carrying a 3-0 lead from the reverse fixture at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.
The Glamour Boys got their goals from striker Washington Pakamisa who scored a brace while midfielder Masimba Mambare weighed in with the other goal.
And Dynamos coach Kalisto Pasuwa and his troops seeking to defend their lead will have to endure a long road trip to Gaborone as the club faces a serious cash squeeze.
The Dynamos hierarchy has been hoping to tie down a sponsor for their African Champions League campaign after their principal sponsors BancABC indicated that they will not be able to bankroll their African Safari although they would continue to help in the domestic matches.
Club secretary Webster Chikengezha said the team would leave Harare at 6am on Thursday and should arrive in Botswana around 10 pm.
“The team is leaving on Thursday morning at 6am and is scheduled to arrive around 10 or 11pm the same day,” he said.
“The team will use the bus donated by Nyaradzo Funeral Services and it’s possible to arrive the same day because Lesotho Correctional Services did it last year.”
Dynamos have been boosted by the return from injury of striker Simba Sithole and midfielder Tafadzwa Rusike.
The pair which missed Sunday’s victory over Mochudi Center Chiefs has been certified fit by the medical team and started training on Wednesday.
Sithole had a tendon inflammation and had been rested for five days while Rusike had a minor hamstring injury.
Should Dynamos manage to defend their lead they will meet the winner between AS Vita of DR C and Kano Pillars of Nigeria.
AS Vita overcame Kano Pillars 3-1 in the first leg at home.Advertisement
