Mutasa: We learnt the hard way

Dynamos coach Lloyd Mutasa was devastated by the 1-0 defeat to FC Platinum, and says his side must improve on converting chances into goals.

The home defeat at the National Sports Stadium in Dynamos’ opening game of the season marked a third consecutive loss to their Zvishavane rivals.

Not only did Mutasa watch as his team hit the bar and squander several good one-on-one chances, but he also saw his side conceding a penalty to lose the game.

Speaking after the match, a highly upset Mutasa says he believed DeMbare had the better of the chances on the day, but paid the price for not being clinical enough.

“I have to accept it as a coach and move forward. I would like to believe we had better chances than them but at the end of the day we could not get three points,” he was quoted saying by Bulawayo24.

“We created chances and never converted and in football if you cannot score you cannot win matches and it’s three points lost.

“I think we had some good chances and at one time with the keeper to beat. If you cannot capitalise that will be the end result. Such is football, sometimes you learn the hard way,” he added.

Mutasa did at least attempt to find some positives in the defeat.

“You will never be satisfied as a coach when you are on the losing end but I would like to give thumbs up to the youngsters. They gave it their all. They created chances and we failed to capitalise on that as a team and it’s back to the drawing board,” he said.
