Dynamos coach, Lloyd Mutasa, has praised his side for turning up when they beat Ngezi Platinum Stars 3-2 at the National Sports Stadium on Thursday.
The premier league mid-evening kick off match saw seventh placed Dynamos dislodge the platinum miners for the top of the log, ending their five match winning streak by goals from forward, Denver Mukamba, captain, Ocean Mushure and Cameroonian striker, Christain Ntouba Epoupa.
Speaking to journalists after the win, Mutasa said he was glad to have extended Dynamos’ winning streak to four games on the trot.
“. . . I’m so happy the youngsters came to the party, we collected three points. Four games in a row, I think it’s good progress in our institution,” he said.
Mutasa said Dynamos, who have now recorded 20 points from 11 games, were more tactically astute in scoring than their opponents despite appearing to have lost the contest in the 70th minute when former Dynamos midfielder, Dominic Mukandi, headed home for 2-1 to put the visitors in the lead.
“I think if you look at their first goal . . . I think we gave it to them, we had two men and they had one striker and when their striker went for the ball our defenders retreated instead of pressing high and we were punished,” he said.
Mutasa, however, refused to say whether the Glamour Boys were officially back in the title race after enduring a staggering start to the premier league this year.
“I wouldn’t want to say that, I wouldn’t want to put pressure on my youngsters, but probably what I’m seeking is [that] we said as an institution we want to do better than yesterday, we want to do better than last year and doing better than last year is our focus now,” he said.
