Bulawayo City coach Amini Soma Phiri has rued loss of concentration during the team’s 1-0 loss to Highlanders on Thursday in a tightly contested Bulawayo derby.

Highlanders needed a 74th minute free kick by Brian Banda that beat a badly positioned Takudzwa Ndoro in goals to claim first win in three matches.

The BCC owned side suffered a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Highlanders in their Castle Lager Premier Soccer League fixture, making it 3 losses on the trot but head coach Soma Phiri was happy with the performance of his players.

“That’s the game of football where you outplay your opponents and then the result is the opposite. What I’m happy about is that the boys are giving a fight. In the last two games that I have been in charge, we were playing for 65 to 75 minutes, but today we played up to the 90th minute.” Phiri told the Chronicle.

Phiri said he was disappointed with conceding a free-kick from which Highlanders’s Brian Banda scored the goal, though he felt the keeper should have dine better.

“About the goal, I think it was a bit of luck. They just got that gift of a goal. The keeper failed to cover his space.”, He added.
