DYNAMOS winger Emmanuel Mandiranga believes they will bounce back from the humiliating 3-0 defeat to Highlanders last Sunday.
With the win, Highlanders completed a double over DeMbare.
And for the Glamour Boys, who have lost their glamour this season, a win over Chapungu tomorrow is the only option to appease their supporters across the country.
Mandiranga, who starred in the reverse fixture against Chapungu at Ascot, said his team will get back to winning ways.
“We have to rectify the mistakes that we made at Barbourfields, everyone knows that it is our responsibility to play well and for the team.
“I think we were improving before this setback but this is a big club so we will comeback in the next game and soon get everything going on well,” he said.
The speedy attacker said though they lost the ‘battle of Zimbabwe’ twice this year, the mentality going forward is to be positive and leave the woes behind.
“It’s an important game but it is part of the game of football because we never want to lose against our rivals but this is just a phase which will pass, so we remain positive.
“To our fans we know it is difficult for them also but we urge them to keep on supporting the team, I’m sure we will please them again,” he said.
Mandiranga believes Chapungu have become his favourite prey in the league as he usually performs well against them.
“Winning is my aim and playing well again is always important for me.
“I think I have played well in most of the games that I have faced Chapungu so that’s enough motivation for me.
“It will be nice if I score a goal or two or just play well the team but everyone is geared up for the game,” he added.
DeMbare welcomes back coach Lloyd Mutasa, who was away with Warriors when they lost to Highlanders.
