The coach of Zamenkomste FC, Mr Caiphus Mamafha, was disappointed with the result when they lost 1-0 to high-riding Mpheni Home Defenders in an MMK Administrators League match at Zamenkomste on Sunday.
Mamafha told Limpopo Mirror that it was disappointing to end any match without getting the desired result. "We played well and obviously the aim was to go out and win. We dominated in all statistical aspects, but in that one aspect that counts we conceded a goal from an accidental situation. This is what cost us. Accidents happen in football.”
He said that they must accept it and move forward. “From the chances that we created, we could have easily won the game.” He added that everything had gone well until the moment they had conceded the goal as “from that moment, blood entered into our heads and we lost concentration”.
Mr Vhutshilo Phuravhathu, the coach of Defenders, said that they had had the game under control in the first half. He added that in soccer one had no time to relax or be complacent. “We have learnt this lesson the hard way. I’m happy with the outcome, but it could have been better, especially the first half.”
Reginal Mukhumeni of Zamenkomste and Lesley Maluma of Defenders were both red-carded for different infringements. The only goal of the day was scored by Mashudu Muswadzi early in the match.
