FORMER champions Dynamos picked up a vital point away to plucky How Mine following a 0-0 draw in a Castle Lager Premiership tie at Barbourfields on Thursday.
Dynamos have been revived since Lloyd Mutasa took over following a disastrous experiment with clueless Portuguese coach Paulo Jorge Silva.
After a sluggish start to the campaign under the Portuguese gaffer the Harare giants have stitched together five successive matches.
The draw against How Mine represents a huge step in their title bid considering How Mine under the guidance of Zambian tactician Kelvin Kaindu are regarded as formidable opponents despite their recent struggles.
The draw took Dynamos’ points tally to 24, five behind leaders, bitter city rivals Caps United who benefited from a stumble by Highlanders and FC Platinum to stay at the top.
Crucially, the draw means Dynamos remain unbeaten in six matches.
With just five points now seperating them from the log leaders with the season staggering towards the second round, observers believe Dynamos, winners of the title in four successions under Kalisto Pasuwa could run away with the title this time around after they were beaten to it by Chicken Inn in a very close race last term.
