DYNAMOS Coach Lloyd Chigove has thrown his weight behind his out-of-sorts squad to deliver ahead of a tough test against rivals CAPS United on Sunday.
DeMbare come into this game with their backs against the wall as they fight to avoid an unwanted relegation embarrassment.
Chigove, who took over from Lloyd Mutasa, will take charge of his second game in the league having lost his opening game 2-0 away to FC Platinum.
The Glamour Boys will take motivation from their Chibuku Super Cup triumph last weekend.
Ahead of the clash with Makepekepe, Chigove believes a good week will produce a good result.
“The boys have worked hard this week that’s why today (Yesterday) we tried to reduce the load; they had a very good physical workout on Tuesday and yesterday we trained twice once in the morning and had a match in the afternoon and this morning we are just trying a recovery management tomorrow we finalize our tactics for the game,” he said.
Chigove had earlier suggested that a good Chibuku Cup result would have been a good motivator for his charges; a good one against CAPS could do even more to a turnaround in the ailing giants’ fortunes.
“Naturally you want to believe that the boys now have belief that they are winners and we are also waiting on their mental strength that they are ready for the game on Sunday.
“I think we have a squad of boys who are going to be able to showcase what they can do.
“In my opinion no match is going to be easy but CAPS are our traditional rivals, we respect them but we are out to get a result,” he added.
Assistant coach Murape Murape praised the players for giving an extra input for the team.
One such player is goalkeeper Simbarashe Chinani who left behind to do more practice at Motor Action Sports Club.
“Always when we face CAPS United we expect to win but not only to win but to give a good fight for us to be victorious.
“They are our number one enemy so when we face then we to have a positive attitude.
“From the look of things, I don’t really know if most of them know what it means to be a Dynamos player and playing against CAPS United because your attitude has to show from the training ground up to the match day, we are trying to tell them what it means to be a Dynamos player.
“You look at the players that we have at our disposal, most of them or some of them are not committed to the Dynamos cause so it will be difficult to work with players with indiscipline, it’s a big challenge but however we are confident that those committed will help us pull out of this situation,” he said.
