Goals from Elvis Moyo and a controversial penalty from Charles Sibanda condemned Dynamos to another defeat after they were knocked out of the Mbada Diamonds Cup by How Mine only three days ago.

CAPS United meanwhile completed a double over Bulawayo side Chicken Inn at the National Sports Stadium. United handed the visitors a 2-1 defeat with Moses Muchenje and Hardlife Zvirekwi scoring the two goals. Caps United are 5th on log standings with 39 points.
