Lusaka Dynamos coach Perry Mutapa say today’s game against second-placed Power Dynamos will be tough but his team will carry a winning mentality on the pitch and will take the game cautiously.
Mutapa said playing a team like Power Dynamos which boasts of quality players who have been in fine shape this season was a huge task but that his players will not be intimidated and will approach the game with a positive mind. He warned that his team will fight to the end to ensure that they collect maximum points against its highly-rated opponents. He said Lusaka Dynamos should not be underrated by any team in the premier league as it had performed better against big teams since returning to top-flight football.
“Playing a team like Power Dynamos is always a difficult task because this is a big team that is doing very well in the league and they have good players able to cause an upset.
”This is a team that no coach would want to play against but we have the strength to do better. My players are well prepared for the game and we are wishing for a better result,” Mutapa said.
“Yes, this is going to be a very big game, but we are also determined to win because the players are psychologically prepared for the encounter. This is a massive game for us, and we are leaving nothing to chance,” he said.
Lusaka Dynamos are eighth on the log with 21 points and a win against Power Dynamos will ensure that they do not slip any further on the log while the Kitwe giants will be looking forward to keeping the pressure on log leaders and defending champions Zesco United who are five points clear.
Zesco look set to consolidate their grip at the top this Sunday with a date against lowly Napsa Stars who are already languishing in the relegation zone and are only four points from tail-enders Nakambala Leopards.
The Sugar Boys on the other hand welcome National Assembly who are also in the relegation zone where they will be seeking to record a second win this season after a string of draws and losses which have characterised their performance. Meanwhile, Red Arrows will be seeking to put their midweek 1-all draw against record 12-time champions Nkana behind them when they play Brave Nchanga Rangers in Chingola while Nkana entertain Sharp Konkola Blades at the Nkana Stadium.
