Maruwa Sheds Light On Biggest Weakness In Chiefs Defeat
Dynamos Coach Admits to Defensive Letdown in Defeat Against Bulawayo Chiefs
In a surprising turn of events, Dynamos lost 3-2 against Bulawayo Chiefs in Sunday’s Castle Lager Premiership Matchday 6 encounter. Coach Herbert Maruwa admitted that the team’s defense was to blame for the loss, as it let in three goals for the first time this season.
After the game, Maruwa told reporters that the team’s defending was subpar, leading to their defeat. He acknowledged that there was a lot of complacency at the back and that their tracking in the box was not good. Despite their strong attacking performance, their defense failed to keep up, allowing the opposition to score easily.
Dembare started the game strong, but a subdued display throughout the game saw them fall behind in the 17th minute with Mthokozisi Msebe’s effort. Frank Makarati managed to restore parity ten minutes later after converting a penalty.
Bulawayo Chiefs came out strong in the second half, setting an early pace and restoring their lead just two minutes into the half with Felix Moyo’s goal. Dynamos midfielder Tendai Matindife managed to equalize in the 80th minute, but the effort was in vain as Bulawayo Chiefs restored their lead seven minutes later with Danny Phiri’s goal.
The game ended in favour of the away team, who moved out of the relegation zone. Dynamos, who were previously among the leading pack in the previous round, dropped to number 7 on the table following the loss.
