DYNAMOS, still coming to terms with reality after their shock elimination from the Chibuku Super Cup by lowly Black Rhinos, have been drawn to face How Mine in the semi-finals of the NetOne One Wallet Cup.
The draw for the semi -finals was conducted in Harare yesterday. Triangle were paired against Chicken Inn in the other semi-final.
Both matches will be played in Zvishavane at Mandava Stadium on Saturday and Sunday.
Dynamos were, however, quick to welcome the draw.
“I knew we would be against How Mine. But I think it’s a fair draw because Mandava Stadium is a neutral venue,” said Dynamos team manager Richard Chihoro.
“How Mine are a very good side and I remember they have booted us out in the Mbada Diamonds Cup before. But this time we are hungrier to win this cup especially if you consider that we are out of the Chibuku Super Cup. We were very disappointed to be sent out of the Chibuku Cup by Black Rhinos.”
The defending league champions, however, face their opponents with sad memories of their early exit from the Chibuku Cup losing to Black Rhinos through substitute Nesbert Padzarondora’s deflected shot with just eight minutes remaining.
Dynamos striker Rodreck Mutuma and Rhinos defender Abel Gada exchanged blows in injury time and both players were shown straight red cards by referee Batsirai Muchenje while Rhinos coach Jostein Mathuthu and his assistant Gift Kamuriwo were expelled from the bench for their involvement in that moment of madness.
How Mine, however, will go into the match with their confidence low after they were defeated 0-3 by an improving Harare City.
