Dynamos coach Tonderai Ndiraya has admitted the absence of Simba Nhivi, Evans Katema and Archieford Gutu has brought an impact on the team after registering another draw on Sunday.
The Glamour Boys played out to a 1-1 stalemate against Bulawayo Chiefs at Rufaro Stadium.
They had a difficult time to break their opponents’ defence and didn’t create any meaningful opportunity in the first half.
In his post-match presser, Ndiraya noted the absence of the trio who arrived at the club in the mid-season has affected the team going forward.
“I think the absence of Simba Nhivi, Evans Katema and Archieford Gutu, who are injured, was felt in this match,” he said.
“The trio would make a huge difference if available, and without them, we find it difficult to get results. It’s like we have gone back from where we started without them.”
The coach added that he was happy to see to captain Edward Sadombo returning to action from an injury and made a significant contribution in the game.
The skipper started in the first XI and scored the opener early in the second before Farawu Matare equalised for Chiefs moments later.
Ndiraya said: “I am happy for Sadomba. He came back from a long lay-off, and we did not want to put too much pressure on him by expecting a lot. It was going to be unfair, but he did well and got us a goal.”
