A GAME which was delayed by a clash in colours ended producing a goalless draw as Dynamos slipped further in the championship race.

According to reports, Dynamos had indicated that they would be wearing blue shorts but pitched up wearing red ones.

Triangle were also wearing the same kit colour.

Dynamos coach, Tonderai Ndiraya, said he would take the point and was happy with how his boys played. “I thought we had a good game today, to be quite honest,” he said.

“The response was good, if I want to compare with last week’s response, today the boys fought hard for a win.

“But, unfortunately, we dropped two points today, we were supposed to get maximum points but, once again, we were not clinical in front of goal.

“Of course, we created some chances, we had some opportunities which I thought, with extra effort, we could’ve forced the ball in.”

He added:

“The few chances that came our way, we’re supposed to take those but unfortunately we didn’t.

“I must commend the team today for the fighting spirit which they didn’t have last week.

“We wanted the game more than Triangle and that’s what is pleasing and what’s important, at the end, is the result.

“But, I’m very satisfied with how the team fought today and the way the team played and committed today.

“Of course, you’d want three points but when the boys give it their all, they have to be applauded.

“It’s one of those games but we still have time ahead of us. I understand that we must pick points.”

Ndiraya says he will now shift focus to their game against Cranborne Bullets.

“We look ahead to the next game, we go away to Cranborne and if we are going to perform, fight the same way we did today. I’m positive that we can get a result there. “Difficult venue but I still believe that we can really fight.

“There’s still time, there’s still a long way to go, if we are going to exhibit the spirit that we exhibited today, I’m fully confident that we can get the result we want.”

Triangle coach Jairos Tapera said he was happy with the point. “We are doing well in terms of the build-up and how these guys are responding to what we are discussing in training.”

In other Castle Premier League Matchday 19 games, Bulawayo Chiefs slipped to a surprise 0-1 home defeat to Cranborne Bullets, Whawha beat Tenax 1-0 and Bulawayo City shocked Manica Diamonds 1-0.
