DeMbare salvage point at Colliery

HWANGE - Defending champions Dynamos had to come from behind to collect a point away to Hwange at the Colliery yesterday.

The coalminers were first to get on the score board through defender Munyaradzi Mungadze 10 minutes into the match.

DeMbare equalised six minutes after the break through forward Dominic Chungwa but could not find the winner.

With the draw, Dynamos remain in third place with 27 points, two behind log leaders Chicken Inn, who lost to CAPS United yesterday.

As for Hwange, they remain a place above the relegation zone in 12th place with 15 points.

Since 2012, Dynamos have failed to win at the Colliery with Hwange becoming more of their bogey side in this fixture in recent seasons.

Although a draw away at the Colliery can be considered a good result, it is unlikely to ease the pressure on DeMbare coach David Mandigora.

The former Dynamos defender has been receiving a lot of stick from the club’s fans for the poor display by his players.

In most home matches, Mandigora has to be escorted off the pitch by security personal as the fans would be baying for his blood.

Even in the 3-2 home win over Highlanders last weekend, Dynamos fans were not impressed with the display on the field.

The calls for Mandigora to be sacked are likely to increase next weekend when the Glamour Boys host Hwange in the reverse fixture at Rufaro Stadium.

Another poor display in front of their home fans might spell an end to Mandigora’s reign at the Glamour Boys.

DeMbare will be expected to get back to winning ways when they host the coalminers in Harare.

The pressure on Mandigora can be understandable considering the Glamour Boys have been winning the championship in the past four seasons but now seem to be struggling to catch up with log leaders Chicken Inn.
