DYNAMOS coach Tonderai Ndiraya is hopeful that his team will do better in the remaining nine games of the season.
DeMbare are on run of four consecutive draws and have a total of 12 draws since Ndiraya took over from Lloyd Chigowe.
They travel to Ndiraya’s former team, Ngezi Platinum this Saturday.
“We need to try and correct things in the last nine games and I think we have been moving slowly because when you get a point you’re not moving much.
“We just have to do more in the last matches, I think the last matches are going to be difficult.
“We need to pull ourselves like what we did in the first round of matches and get results,” he said.
Ndiraya acquired the services of Simba Nhivi, Evans Katema, Archford Gutu, Evans Katema and Godknows Murwira during the season break to strengthen his team.
Four of those acquired are injured except Murwira who is on loan from FC Platinum and has been doing fairly well for the team.
Injuries have been a huge blow to Ndiraya’s team.
“It’s been difficult for us, I think our team was looking quite ordinary without those players. We acquired those players to strengthen our team and when we lost them through injuries, we then became another team.
“We went back to where we were a long time ago, so it’s a worrying sign when you have injuries to your key players but what can we do.
“We can’t rush them back, they are recovering quite well, Simba should be starting training this week with the rest of the team.
“We are also going to be assessing Evans whether he can join the team, I’m also hopeful that Archford will be back.
“So that will obviously give us the creativity I always moan about, the cutting edge we are always looking for, “he said.
“You could only imagine but this is where we find ourselves and there is nothing we can do about it besides letting the due process of recovery take its place.
“But we can only hope they come back sooner than later, nine games to go of course we’ve lost some ground but I think we can still recover some lost ground in the last 27 points to be played for.”
