BATTLE lines have been drawn for Saturday’s inaugural TM Pick n Pay Challenge Cup between traditional foes Dynamos and Highlanders at the National Sports Stadium.
The giants tussle in the US$110,000 Cup which the winners are set to pocket US$60,000 while the runners-up will pocket the remainder.
Highlanders go into this match seeking to banish the Harare giants’ dominance over them in recent years.
They last time they tasted victory over Dynamos was in the 2011 Independence Trophy where a penalty shoot-out victory had to help them to victory following a 0-0 regulation time draw.
Highlanders coach Kelvin Kaindu has expressed determination to break the Dynamos hegemony.
“A Cup game is tricky because there should not be a draw but an outright win. That makes us take this game more seriously and ensure that we win inside 90 minutes,” Kaindu said.
“We have been talking about this game a lot in our camp and everyone wants victory. We have to win it at all cost. I know Dynamos have been the better side recently but that is history now and we are not looking into that.”
The Bulawayo giants arrived in Harare on Friday morning ahead of the blockbuster encounter.
