Dynamos coach David Mandigora was a relieved man after Oscar Machapa scored a last minute goal against FC Platinum at Rufaro Stadium on Sunday to earn his team maximum points after a winless four match streak.
With many hard-to-please fans already calling for his departure, the win could not have come at a better time for Mandigora who saw two of his players – Obey Mwerahari and Simba Nhivi – limping off the field with injuries to add to the many who are on the injury list.
“It’s a great relief after what happened in the past three matches, so it’s good to score and get a win. At least we got three points,” said Mandigora in his post-match comments.
Facing the same fate is Mandigora’s counterpart, Norman Mapeza, who said he is not worried about his team’s poor away record.
“I’m not worried at all. If results don’t come and it means I have to go, I will go.I ’m not worried about anything, but I will try to soldier on,” said Mapeza.
Mapeza blamed his team’s loss to poor concentration by his players, some of whom, are ‘still youngsters’ prone to make mistakes.
