DYNAMOS coach Lloyd Mutasa has described as unfortunate the abandonment of their Castle Lager Premiership match against Chapungu at Ascot on Sunday after an hour of breathtaking football.

Dynamos were leading 4-0 when the match was called off after the goal post was damaged when the Chapungu goalkeeper collided with the post.

“We only played 56 minutes and it’s very unfortunate because we were in control. It was in our hands considering the goals we had scored by the time it was stopped.

“I was happy with the boys’ performance,” said Mutasa.

Mutasa said they could not find a way forward after efforts to fix the goal post were unfruitful.

He said they will wait for the PSL decision after the referees submit their reports.

“We didn’t get the way forward at the match venue because the referees need to submit their reports to PSL, they don’t give decisions.

“So we will just wait for the verdict but there is need to consider that we were playing away from home,” he said.

PSL chief executive officer Kenny Ndebele said he is yet to receive an official report on what had transpired.

He said it is prudent to give their (PSL) position after the officials who were at Ascot submit their report.

“I am not even aware of what transpired at Ascot,” he said.

“I think you need to call me tomorrow (today) and I will have a position and be able to comment.

“I need to get a report from the referees and we talk about it later,” said Ndebele.

Dynamos were leading through goals from Emmanuel Mandiranga (brace), Denver Mukamba and Joel Christian Epoupa.
