DYNAMOS and Young Warriors coach Calisto Pasuwa has expressed his disappointment with defender Sidney Linyama who has not been reporting for training since last week.
The defending champions make the trip to Buffaloes on Sunday hoping to avenge the 1-0 defeat they suffered at the hands of the army side in the reverse fixture at the National Sports Stadium.
Dynamos who lead the league table with 46 points, two ahead of second placed ZPC Kariba who take on Triangle on Saturday will also be without goalkeeper Tatenda Mukuruva, Devon Chafa and Masimba Mambare who are all still nursing injuries.
“I don’t know what is happening to Linyama. He is not reporting for training,” said a visibly angry Pasuwa after the club’s training session in Masasa on Thursday.
“When I went to Egypt, he was supposed to come for training but he has not been coming since last week Thursday. He had recovered from injury but it was just a matter of fitness level. We have tried to engage him but he switches off his phone and it’s a problem to communicate with him.”
The Dynamos coach however, implored his charges to roll up their sleeves ahead of the Sunday trip. The players will have to put behind them last Sunday’s NetOne One Wallet Cup upset at the hands of Triangle.
“We must rectify our mistakes to get the points we want,” said Pasuwa.
“Our defeat to Triangle was a wake-up call. We need to work hard. We have been addressing the issue of scoring. What is lacking is the technique but we are getting there in scoring positions.
“We are going to field a player who has been scoring even if he is not playing well because we need are goals.”
Saturday: Chicken Inn v Black Rhinos (Hartsfield Stadium),Chiredzi v Bantu Rovers (Chishamiso Stadium), Harare City v FC Platinum ( Rufaro Stadium), ZPC Kariba v Triangle United (Gwanzura Stadium).
