Dynamos coach Tonderai Ndiraya has blamed his players after they were knocked out of the 2019 Chibuku Super Cup, falling 1-0 to bitter rivals Highlanders in the first round of the competition on Sunday.
Prince Dube scored the only goal of the match on the half-hour following a swift move which beat his marker and the advancing goalkeeper.
The Glamour Boys never brought any serious trouble to their opponents, and most of their attacks ended up in vain.
Their performance in the middle of the park was subpar, and they struggled to keep the ball flowing.
Speaking after the match, Ndiraya said: “We were playing at home against a team that has played two games in the last five days.
“We were fresh, and I thought we would push ourselves, but we didn’t do that. I am quite disappointed with the way we performed. It was just a poor show by the team.”
Dynamos have lost to their rivals in both games they have played this season. The first meeting was in the league three months ago and they lost 1-0.
