Giants Settle For A Draw

Dynamos were the first to settle down and took the lead in the second minute through Takesure Chinyama before Highlanders found the equaliser through Milton Ncube deep in the first half.

The goal was Chinyama’s eighth for the season. Leading goal scorer Nelson Mazivisa of Shabanie Mine has so far scored 13 goals from 15 games.

Chinyama, however, might not catch up with Mazivisa as he is scheduled to leave for South Africa where he is billed to star for top club Orlando Pirates.

The draw sees Highlanders remain at the top of the 16 team league table with 33 points from 15 games while Dynamos have also not moved and are still in seventh position with 24 points from 12 games.

The Harare giants have three games in hand against Caps United, FC Platinum and Hwange. The game against Hwange is a replay ordered after Dynamos had initially won the first game 3-0 but the result was nullified after Dynamos marshals assaulted Hwange coaches Nayion Dube and Mamelo Njekwa just before the game.

Dynamos play Caps United at Rufaro Stadium this weekend before travelling to Zvishavane for a date against FC Platinum at Mandava Stadium the next weekend.

The result at Barbourfields Sunday leaves Highlanders as the only unbeaten side in the Premiership as they have not lost a game after 15 matches of the 30 game PSL programme.

About 20 000 fans paid to watch the game between Dynamos and Highlanders which lived up to its billing and had no incidents of violence due to the huge security presence.
