Patrick Phiri cries foul as Lusaka dynamos and Zesco share spoils
Lusaka Dynamos Coach Patrick Phiri had the centre referee to blame after his side played to a two all draw at Levy Mwanawasa stadium in Ndola. The game saw two Lusaka dynamos goals disallowed for off side a call which Patrick Phiri found unfair and not correct.
“Its a big disappointment because they were not offside but clear cut goals. Am very disappointed with the officiating from our very good referee Mr Sikazwe,” he said
The former Chipolopolo coach was full of praise for his team and felt they gave it a 100% as compared to Zesco United’s 70%.
“As you saw we out played Zesco and my boys have it a 100% given we are coming from the bush while Zesco seemed tired and have tasted success so it’s a fair score line,” Phiri narrated.
The visiting side took the lead through Chris Mugalu in the early minutes of the game while Rahim Osmanu equalised for the home side.Namibian internation miedfilder Petrus Tshitembi and Marvin Jere took charge of the mid field and the team’s efforts resulted in a goal for the latter.
Clement Mwape levelled matters by heading home from a corner to make sure the two teams share spoils.
