NGANDU Mangala and Ali Maliselo were on target for Dynamos in their 2-0 win over Mushowani at Rufaro yesterday.
Yesterday’s two-goal margin win was the first for Tonderai Ndiraya since he took over from Lloyd Chigowe.
The win also saw DeMbare taking their unbeaten run to six games – three wins and three draws.
Ndiraya was happy with the maximum points and the score line which he described as refreshing.
“I am happy with the result, I am happy with the three points and scoring two goals for the first time, so that is quite refreshing.
“The overall performance was not quite impressive. I am not quite happy with the performance, I think I’ve said it before there is a certain level we want to reach, there are certain standards we want to get to,” he said.
He, however, said he is seeing some progress within his team but expects them to up their game.
“Though I can see some progress; I still feel we are still not up to it in terms of performance. I thought we are still lagging behind in that area but quite a lot of players are improving by each game.
“I’m hoping that we get to the standards we want as quickly as possible.
“This is the last part of the competition and I am happy that we have started on a good note. We want to build on this result,” he said.
The former Ngezi Platinum gaffer wants to do better in the second half of the season.
“I want to forget about the first round though we did well but I want to do better in the second round.
“We have given ourselves some targets and we want to see how far we can go in the first five games and if we manage to get some points then we will know that we have set the tone for a great finish.
“Mushowani are a good team and have been doing well in their past games, it’s unfortunate that they lost today but you can see what they can do,” he said.
Mushowani coach Newman Mushipe admitted that they were outclassed by the Harare giants.
“We didn’t do much in terms of being offensive, we were playing too deep and most of our passes were not accurate which I think affected us today (yesterday).
“Our midfield was not functioning well. It’s a game that I can say we were outclassed, Dynamos were on top of the situation from the first minute until the final whistle,” he said.
In another PSL match played yesterday, CAPS United beat Manica Diamonds 1-0 at Vengere.
Joel Ngodzo scored from the spot to take his side to second position on the standings.
