…DeMbare snatch late win
DYNAMOS coach Tonderai Ndiraya was not happy with the way his team handled their business despite beating Chapungu 1-0 at Rufaro yesterday.
Second half substitute Robert Sackey scored the only goal that made the day for DeMbare faithful in additional time.
“It was such a bad performance. I am happy about the result but the performance was poor by our standards.
“If Chapungu were a bit sharp they could have scored one or two,” said Ndiraya.
He, however, embraced the three points but demanded more from his side, performance wise.
“There is no bad win. We won today (yesterday) and obviously after we got defeated in our last match.
“We can’t ask for more We battled for a win, we did not concede, we kept a clean sheet which is a plus on our side but I am not happy with the way we defended,” said Ndiraya.
DeMbare failed to create meaningful chances and had to wait for injury time to secure all points.
It was late in the game when Sadomba perfectly set up Sackey, who was his debut for the Harare giants.
“Frankly and honestly we failed to find the rhythm today (yesterday). We were not ourselves in all departments.
“It was a difficult game for us, I don’t know maybe it was because of the break but honestly I am not happy with how we performed as a team,” said Ndiraya.
DeMbare have roped in Simba Nhivi and Achieford Gutu who were however, not part of yesterday’s team.
Chapungu coach Rodwell Dhlakama said it was a painful defeat.
“Painful defeat given that we created a lot of chances but we failed to convert.
“We tried our best but players can lose concentration in a split second and that was it. I warned my players about defending deep during the half time break.
“But that is football, we have to work on those grey areas and improve in our next outing,” said Dhlakama.
