Dynamos boost as Murape derby ready

DYNAMOS received a major boost ahead of Sunday’s derby clash with Caps United following the availability of inspirational midfielder Murape Murape.
The veteran linkman lasted just 20 minutes in their last match against Black Rhinos after injuring his left knee.
While limping after the match with a bandage-strapped knee, it appeared Murape would miss the derby.
But Dynamos assistant coach Tichaona Diya on Thursday allayed fears of Murape’s unavailability as he fully trained with the squad at the National Sports Stadium.
“Murape is very fit as you can see. He is available for selection. We hope there would be no more injuries on Friday when we train for the last time. Preparations for the derby have been going on very well and the guys are ready for battle,” Diya said.
Left-back Ocean Mushure sat out Thursday’s training with a bout of flu while forward Anesu Gondo has failed to recover on time from a foot sprain.
Tafadzwa Rusike did not train as well and has been ruled out.
The Harare giants received a boost with the return of forwards Clive Kawinga and Simba Sithole who fully participated in the training session.
