Bulawayo City … (0) 1
Dynamos ……… .. (1) 2
Dynamos put their internal problems aside, with players doing boycott training last week while collecting valuable maximum points after rejecting 10 man Bulawayo City in a lukewarm Castle Lager Premier Soccer League game at Barbourfields Stadium yesterday.

A goal in each half of Quality Kangadzi and Denver Mukamba made sure that city bus Bekithemba Ndlovu swallowed his words after he went to dig Dynamos during the week and said they were relegation candidates.
Sipho Ndlovu from the town was prematurely interrupted by referee Thabani Bamala for rough play about Ocean Mushure after 38 minutes.
Kangadzi's goal in the 19th minute was made by skipper Mushure, whose superbly taken free kick was missed by Mukamba before Kangadzi shot from behind to open the score after a sloppy defense by Bulawayo City.
Mukamba weighed in the second five minutes after the break and fired goalkeeper Munyaradzi Diya in the sixteen meters of a Kudakwashe Kumwala cross from the right after the lanky winger dribbled past Zephaniah Ngodzo.
Chrispen Ncube then scored from a free kick for Bulawayo City on the hour that the ball shot past goalkeeper Simbarashe Chinani.
And then, despite being one man downstairs, the hosts were shooting all over Dynamo from all angles, but the Harare giants defended their slim advantage to the end to come out victorious.
Dynamo & # 39; s have gone three games without defeat with two wins and a draw to go to 29 points.
The only downer is the decreasing number of fans that come to watch their matches, as shown by the presence of yesterday.
It was a relief for coach Lloyd Mutasa, who was hoping for a response to his indictment after being given a scoreless draw by Yadah in their last league game.
"It was a welcome victory after a week full of drama, we only trained lightly before we traveled to Bulawayo and a thumbs up to the guys who played well after a lack of preparation," said Mutasa.
It does not get any better for Ndlovu, who has lost all his five games since taking over Amini Soma-Phiri.
The city is rolling second from the bottom of the log table with 15 points from 25 matches.
"We started slow in the first half, but we caught up in the second half, but that red card in the first half had killed our game plan," said Ndlovu.
"We changed the situation and dominated the second half and the performance is good, that is the everyday song, but we are not winning, we will do our best to win a victory."
Meanwhile, in another match played at Luveve Stadium, Moses Majika saved a run for Bulawayo Chiefs after 10 minutes less time to cancel Allen Gahadzikwa's 25th minute opener for Black Rhinos.
