DYNAMOS’ poor run continued yesterday after a dull 0-0 draw against Chapungu at Rufaro.
Coach Lloyd Mutasa admits it is now time he shifts focus to his blunt strike force that failed to score in two consecutive games.
“I think in terms of defending it was better today but in terms of attacking I think we were blunt again like last week.
“It’s an area that we need to focus on going forward,” he said.
Even new signing Kingston Nkhatha failed to register a single shot at goal.
Mutasa hoped to see his team bouncing back but alas.
“I think we take the point but like any other coach after suffering a defeat, I would want to see the response, would want to see the team bouncing back but it wasn’t to be.
“It’s worrisome that we did not get maximum points at home,” said Mutasa.
Mutasa said Chapungu played a frustrating game.
“When we play these teams it has now become the norm that they would want to even get a point here, and when they come they would want to frustrate us.
“It would be good for them and we really wanted to try as much as we can to get an early goal so that probably they would come to us as well but it wasn’t to be,” he said.
Mutasa says his target now is to finish at a better position.
“Obviously we are worried about where we are (positioned) . . . but as a coach you have to live with what is there and then try to lift the team up.
“This is what we have to do. If you look at the results, we are a bit far from what we said and then what we can only do for now is to try and collect as many points as we can so that we can at least finish at a better position,” he said.
However, Chapungu coach Rodwell Dhlakama said he was happy with the point gained.
“Indeed it was a difficult game . . . l am happy with the point away from home.
“We could have wrapped it up especially in the early stages of the game and the last quarter but we thank God that we managed to get that point,” he said.
