DYNAMOS coach Genesis Mangombe was once again left to mourn his team’s failure to use their chances after another frustrating day for the Glamour Boys at Rufaro yesterday.

Nomore Chinyengere put DeMbare into the lead in the first half but substitute Milton Chimedza restored parity for the Students in the second half.

The Glamour Boys thought they had won the match in the dying stages but their joy was short-lived when the assistant referee claimed there had been an offside in the build up to the effort finding the target.

Far side assistant referee, Kudzanai Hiya, who ruled that gged Herentals’ Dreamer Liyeto was offside when he struck after 27 minutes, again raised his flag when Donald Dzvinyai fired home at the death.

DeMbare players sprinted to confront Hiya, the Herentals players quickly started play and as they were going for the kill when the Glamour Boys technical team and substitutes, led by goalkeepers’ coach Britto Gwere, rushed onto the pitch to stop the attack.

“Some of these decisions are costing us at the end of the day but I am not a referee,” said Mangombe.

“If it’s a goal, it’s a goal.

“Even in their goal, I thought there was an infringement on Jalai.

“We scored a clear goal but it was disallowed.

“We should try and make sure that we score goals whenever we get chances.

“I think we got so many chances in the first half but we failed to score.”

His Herentals counterpart, Paul Benza, said he was not qualified to comment about match officiating.

“I don’t qualify to comment about match officials,” said Benza. “The game was good and I thought my players did very well.

“I am happy and disappointed at the sane time. I think we should have won this match but it is some of those things that happen in football.

“But the fighting spirit from my lads was amazing.”
