Ndiraya unhappy, demands more

Tonderai Ndiraya

DYNAMOS coach Tonderai Ndiraya has warned that his players risked to be axed if they fail to improve in the coming games.

Ndiraya was not impressed after watching his men labour to a scrappy 2-1 win over WhaWha on Saturday at Ascot Stadium, with Alex Orotomol scoring the decisive goal five minutes from time.

King Nadolo had opened the scoresheet before Tendaishe Magwaza restored parity for the prison wardens.

However, the former Warriors assistant coach was miffed by how they conceded from a corner-kick and then took turns to waste opportunities.

Ndiraya is threatening to wield the axe on some players if they do not improve in the next matches.

“The result was good, but the performance was not pleasing to me. Of course, what is important in this race is to pick up points,” Ndiraya said.

“At least, I am happy that we managed to win against WhaWha where our rivals Chicken Inn lost. A lot of big teams are going to drop points here. Chicken Inn have the experience and are seasoned campaigners, they can win games and catch up with us, that is why we need to improve because surely, it is not every game that we are going to be so lucky.

“The competition is good, but we cannot hope for our rivals to drop points at every turn.”

This was DeMbare’s second away win this season.

“That was our second away win and somehow gives us a bit of pleasure that we are adding points from away matches,” Ndiraya said.

“However, there is a lot of complacency in the team. We didn’t carry the right attitude. We need that cunning mentally and a lot of aggression. To be honest, we were a pale shadow of how we played against Manica Diamonds. We were not clinical and wasted so many chances throughout the game. I didn’t like that.”

The Harare giants are now two points ahead of second-placed Chicken Inn who were held to a 1-1 draw by Highlanders on Sunday.

Triangle remained on third position with 24 points, while Manica Diamonds are fourth with 23 points.
