DeMbare ready to rumble

Dynamos gaffer Kallisto Pasuwa says his charges are ready to burry Lesotho Correctional Services when the two teams collide in the second leg of the African Champions League preliminary round at Sesotho Stadium here today.

The Zimbabwe champions carry a healthy 3-0 lead going into this match.

Dembare did not have an envious journey to this mountainous country after encountering complications resulting in them arriving in two batches. The first batch had a traumatic experience after their plane aborted landing in Maseru on Friday noon due to bad weather and had to return to Johannesburg where they had to catch another flight later that day to join the rest of the team in Maseru.

More than 600 supporters arrived yesterday from Zimbabwe, Johannesburg and neighbouring Bloemfontein to cheer the team.

Dembare did light training in the backyard of the hotel yesterday morning under a fine sun, before a fully-fledged training regime in the afternoon at the match venue.

From the look of things, coach Pasuwa is having a headache over who to deploy between the sticks between George Chigova and Artwell Mukandi. While Chigova has established himself at the club, Mukandi is giving the giant goalkeeper a run for his money.

Partson Jaure, Ocean Mushure, Thomas Magorimbo and Gift Bello are likely to form the rearguard for the champions while Devon Chafa, veteran Murape Murape and Stephen Alimenda are likely to be in the middle of the park.

On loan striker Francisco Zekumbawira might play his debut in the African Champions League alongside Farai Mupasiri or former Monomotapa striker, Russel Madamombe.
