DYNAMOS underlined their title credentials when they saw off Yadah FC 2-0 in a Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday.
A stunning first half goal by the ever flourishing captain Ocean Mushure and another in the second half by Cameroonian striker Christian Ntouba Epoupa was all the Glamour Boys needed to register their fifth successive win.
The victory lifted them to third place on the league table with 45 points, three adrift of leaders Chicken Inn who have played two games more.
The Harare giants went into the match on the back of a 6-0 demolition of How Mine after their (miners) regular players refused to take to the field demanding payment of outstanding salaries and allowances.
And they continued their revival against Yadah FC with Mushure missing a headed opportunity from Ntouba on the quarter hour. After 18 minutes, James Sibanda could have thrust Yadah FC ahead but he directed his header wide.
Dynamos, however, poured forward in numbers in search of a goal and Denver Mukamba came close on 19 minutes when his shot sailed just over the bar following a set up by Ntouba.
They were, however, rewarded on 45 minutes when Mushure collected a pass from Ntouba in the penalty area and let fly a powerful shot that hit the roof of the nets, leaving veteran goalkeeper Tafadzwa Dube rooted to the spot.
In the second half, Yadah FC looked determined to equalise and Dynamos had goalkeeper Tonderai Mateyaunga to thank as he kept them in the game with his heroics between the sticks.
On 54 minutes, Rodreck Mutuma could have turned the game on its head when he breached the Dynamos defence but was denied by Mateyaunga with a classy stop.
Five minutes later, Mateyaunga pulled a one handed save to deny Wonder Kalongoda a speculative goal.
Ntouba, however, sealed victory for the Glamour Boys with an opportunistic goal, on 61 minutes.
Dynamos coach Lloyd Mutasa said he was happy to collect maximum points and insisted his current team would do better than last season.
