Dynamos and Highlanders are both through to the Chibuku Super Cup quarter-finals after winning their respective matches over the weekend.
The Glamour Boys overcame Whawha 1-0 at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday through man-of-the-match Trevor Mavhunga’s solitary strike with 17 minutes still on the clock.
Dynamos coach Tonderai Ndiraya expressed satisfaction with the victory but not with the performance of his charges. He said:
I am happy that we have qualified for the next round of the competition, but I am not entirely happy about the way we performed today, especially in the first half.
I thought we should have killed the game in the opening half. We created so many chances but we could not convert them.
It got us so worried because we should have got the goals and wrapped the game in the first half but it wasn’t to be.
We then came back into the second half but if you don’t put the game to bed, you then start to be impatient and desperate.
But, I am happy that we kept our cool, kept on going and kept on creating chances. I would really have wanted us to score from those opportunities but we failed.
I am happy that in the end, it took the anticipation and brilliance of Trevor (Mavhunga) to score that goal that got us the win.
I am happy, that’s about cup games, sometimes you don’t need to play very well but you should win.
Bosso also booked a ticket into the Chibuku Super Cup last eight after beating Triangle United 1-0 at Gibbo Stadium on Sunday.
A first-half own goal by Triangle goalkeeper Taurai Chitsumba separated the two teams after 90 minutes.
In other Chibuku Super Cup quarter-final matches played on Sunday, Bulayawo Chiefs beat ZPC Kariba 1-0, while Manica Diamond were 2-0 winners over Yadah Stars.
