Triangle coach Taurai Mangwiro says it will be sweeter to win their first set of points in front of the Sugar Sugar fans.

Triangle host Dynamos on Sunday at Gibbo Stadium in a rescheduled week two Castle Lager Premier Soccer League match.

After losing to Bulawayo Chiefs in the opening week albeit in controversial circumstances, Mangwiro says he does not want to lose further ground at this early stage of the league competition.

“It is a game we are looking forward to playing at home and after a long time without fans in the stadium. We want to welcome our fans to Gibbo with a win against Dynamos. The game is coming at the back of a defeat in our opening game against Bulawayo Chiefs. You don’t want to be under pressure from the onset so it will be sweeter for us to win it in front of our fans and that would give us the much needed impetus going forward”, Mangwiro said.

Unlike Triangle, Dynamos triumphed 1-0 in their opening league fixture against Yaddah albeit in controversial circumstances. Chazunguza will visit Triangle with their tails up.

However, in the last two visits to Gibbo stadium Dembare have come out empty handed on both occasions. But the over cautious Mangwiro is of the view that statistics are just figures as they don’t play football hence he is calling on his players to give it their best shot.

“I know of late we have been dominating Dynamos here at Gibbo stadium but history alone will not pull us through. It would require sheer determination from everyone and we need to pull together in the same direction for us to deliver. We are not going to bask in past success neither are we going to read much into Dynamos’ past successes especially in the Chibuku Super Cup competition were they went for eleven games unbeaten only to lose in the semi finals.”

“We fancy our chances and at the same time we are aware of the fact that we need to be at our best to get all three points out of the contest.”

Triangle will miss the services of long term casualty Ronald Mudimu who has been unwell for some time while defender Arnold Chivheya and Gerald Bero are nursing injuries.

Mangwiro has to juggle around with the players at his disposal and is confident the players selected will get the job done on Sunday.
