THERE is a real crisis at Dynamos!
The former champions are now in serious danger of relegation following a 1-0 defeat to Harare City at Rufaro yesterday.
DeMbare have now gone for three games without a win and they have also not scored a goal.
Harare City capitalised on an early goal by Ishmael Wadi in the eighth minute to add misery to the Glamour Boys.
DeMbare were coming from a 0-0 dull draw against Chapungu which came after a 3-0 drubbing by Highlanders.
It is not a secret that the country’s most successful club is now in the relegation matrix after yesterday’s result.
Even coach Lloyd Mutasa admits things are now well, and that purported seven millions faithful are not happy.
The low turnout at their recent matches sends a clear message that the glamour has disappeared at the Harare giants.
“It’s a bit worrisome that you play three games and you don’t score a goal, the situation is not good enough for everyone.
“You look at the result, it’s not good enough,” said Mutasa.
“. . . It’s for everybody to know that our problem is putting the ball past the goal line but the creativity is there.
“We are getting into positions where one can score but we are just failing,” he said.
Mutasa, however, still believes that destiny is in their hands and there is light at the end of the tunnel.
“Obviously the hope is there, we still have many matches to play and if you look at where we are I’m sure the destiny is in our hands,” he said.
Mutasa was evasive when asked if he believes it is the right time he throw in the towel.
He hinted that he will leave that to ‘those outside to judge’.
“I wouldn’t want to be the coach, at the same time I become the judge.
“I think it’s for those outside to judge me,” he said.
Mutasa tried in vain in the second half to search for equaliser as he made three offensive substitutions but to no avail.
DeMbare were unlucky as Denver Mukamba was denied by the crossbar while Harare City goalkeeper Ryan Harrison made some brilliant saves.
“You look at the second half performance, you look at the effort these youngsters are putting, the zeal and determination of wanting to break the dark is there but we just failed,’ said Mutasa.
Even Harare City coach Mark Harrison has some praise for his opponents despite completing a double over them.
“We knew they were going to give us a hard time, we knew that they were never going to let go. They were going to chase everything, press down, we had to be prepared for that battle.
“Dynamos are chasing survival now and they can’t get away from it, every game they play is like a final for them so we expect a lot of commitment from them,” he said.
