Dynamos coach Tonderai Ndiraya thinks his team’s bad performance saw them dropping points at Black Rhinos on Saturday.

The Glamour Boys played to a 1-1 draw in a match they created a few meaningful chances while failing go retain more possession.

“Players failing to apply football basics at this level of the game, it’s quite worrisome. We are talking of Dynamos football here, arguably the biggest club in the country, you can’t play for Dynamos when you can’t apply the basics,” Ndiraya said after the game.

Dembare were forced to make an early substitution in the 20th minute when captain Edward Sadomba suffered a head injury. Jarrison Selemani replaced him and the youngster didn’t disappoint as he went to open the scoring five minutes later and hit the post in the second half.

“I thought we were affected by Edward Sadomba’s injury, so we quickly shifted to our plan B, which I think worked,” said the coach.

New signings Simba Nhivi and Evans Katema made their debut in the tie with the later creating the team’s goal.

Ndiraya was satisfied with the pair, saying: “I am happy with Evans Katema’s performance and also Simba Nhivi. I think there was some bit of improvement in our final third, we were a bit threatening today.”
