DYNAMOS’ Frank Makarati could not have asked for a better introduction to DeMbare’s supporters playing at home for the first time as team captain.

A brace in the first half and solid performance at his central defence role ensured an emphatic 4-0 win at the National Sports Stadium on Sunday.

He could definitely not hoped for anything better, Dynamos even passed the ball better than they ever did last season.

Dynamos recorded a 4-0 win against recently promoted Sheasham at th NSS on Sunday

Makarati opened the score by nudging a cornerkick two minutes into their Week Two Castle Lager topflight clash against new entrants Sheasham at the National Sports Stadium.

He then converted a penalty when Tendai Matindife was hacked in the box.

Makarati could easily have been named Man of the Match had Elvis not played a blinder.

A glut of chances were created and alongside reliable right back Emmanuel Jalai, Kevin and Elvis Moyo; Sheasham stood little chance at scoring a consolation.

“I am happy my first game as captain went well. We have been playing for so long here that I have become comfortable, this is my ground now,” said Makarati.

A road show and the club’s season opening 1-0 win over Hwange pulled a respectable crowd at the NSS on Sunday

Dynamos now top log standings on six points after two games.

They beat Hwange 1-0 at Barbourfields stadium last week.

“Makarati has been scoring regularly (at training) and today he carried our day,” said Dynamos coach Herbert Marowa.

The last time Dynamos scored more than two was when an Issa Sadiki inspired side beat rivals Caps United 3-0 at the same venue.
