Harare City coach, Mike Madzivanyika, has lamented the penalty decision which gave Ngezi Platinum Stars a 1-0 win over the Harare side in a Castle Lager Premier League match played at Morris Depot on Sunday.
Harare City went down to a 21st minute spot kick converted by Quadar Amini after Ngezi striker, Donlad Teguru, appeared to have been brought down in the box by Tigere just after a quarter of an hour.
“I think the referee was a bit harsh. That’s all I can explain,” Madzivanyika told journalists at a press conference.
15th placed Harare City slumped to their third defeat of the season and have now collected six points from seven outings. Madzivanyika also expressed dismay at his team’s lack of goals after managing just two goals this season and have a goal difference of minus two.
“Obviously, when you can’t win at home, it becomes difficult. This is the second defeat playing at home and I’m not happy . . .
“Honestly I think this was a 50 – 50 game. These guys, they took their chances and we missed our chances.
“It leaves us with a mountain to climb but we have to climb the mountain,” he said.
