The Ngezi Platinum coach Tonderayi Ndiraya criticised his players’ inability to react to chances created in their 0-0 draw against ZPC Kariba on Tuesday.

Ndiraya criticised his players for their failure to create chances which saw them fail to score a goal for the first time this league campaign.

“I am not impressed with the way we played. It was a below par performance by our standards. To come here and drop points is obviously disappointing,” Ndiraya told the Chronicle.

“We didn’t apply ourselves the way we were supposed to. We lacked the zeal and we were terribly off-colour.

“We failed to weave any meaningful scoring chances and it’s the rule in football that if you fail to create scoring chances you don’t score and if you don’t score you don’t win matches.

“But at the end of the day we did not lose the game. We have now gone for nine matches without defeat, which is a very positive start to the season where most teams are highly competitive. Otherwise, ZPC Kariba also deserve credit for the way they managed to contain us.”

Ngezi Platinum still remain the only unbeaten side in the league after nine games with seven wins and two draws and lead the way on top of the log standings ahead of a strong challenge from FC Platinum and Highlanders.
