Dwangwa United coach Macdonald ‘Nginde’ Mtetemera on Saturday breathed a sigh of relief after his side played out a 1-1 draw against rivals Mafco FC in a Lakeshore derby played at the Chitowe ground in Dwangwa, Nkhotakota.
Mafco were the first to score in the first half through Gibson Nkhonjera before Josophat Kwalira equalised for Dwangwa late in the second half.
Speaking after the match, Mtetemera told reporters that the draw was indeed a relief but the result was not a true reflection of proceedings during the match.
“The draw is a relief to us but I am not satisfied and we need to put an extra gear. The result is also not the true reflection of the game because we were supposed to collect maximum points according to how we played. We did create so many scoring opportunities but we were too wasteful” said Mtetemera.
He however promised alot more good stuff to come out from Dwangwa United.
“We will try as much as possible to push hard in the next three to four games and make sure we move out of the relegation zone,” said Mtetemera who ealier in the just ended admitted there have been so many hiccups inside the Dwangwa family that were beyond the technical team’s control.
Dwangwa United are stuck at position 14 with five points from seven games.
