Dynamos coach, Lloyd Mutasa, has said that the former premier league champions could have capitalised on several clean chances in their 1-0 loss to FC Platinum on Sunday.
The two teams clashed in their opening fixture of the 2017 Castle Lager Premier League at the National Sports Stadium as FC Platinum extend their premier league dominance over the Glamour Boys to three consecutive matches.
“I think we played our normal game, we managed to have control here and there; we created chances and at this level you have two [or] three [chances]. I think we had some open chances, some keeper-to-beat [situations] and if you cannot capitalise that would be the end result. Such is football, you learn the hard way.
“I think we had our chances, we had better chances than them but at the end of the day we could not get three points and we cannot be happy.
“We created chances but we could not convert them and if you cannot score you cannot win matches and its three points lost,” Mutasa told journalists.
Dynamos, who ended fifth on the league table last year, were beaten back to back and have failed to score against FC Platinum for the third time in three premier league fixtures as the Harare club braces for a major shift in local football dominance.
Mutasa said despite the loss, the players showed spirit in creating chances and various scenarios which unfortunately could not be capitalised on.
“You will never be satisfied as a coach when you are on the losing end but I would want to say thumbs up to the youngsters they gave it their all; they played, they created chances but we failed to capitalise as a team. It’s back to the drawing board.
“I think like any other coach, you want to start well but it wans’t to be and this is what happened at the end of the day and I have to accept it as a coach and to look forward,” he said.
