Dynamos Coach Dan Dzinkambani blamed the loss on officiation.

“Normally, I don’t complain about officiation but most of the decisions in today’s game affected us. Of course I changed the team a lot as each player deserves game time,” he said.

Eagles Coach Eliya Kananji said they want to win the remaining games to stand a chance of finishing in the top two.

“We will continue working hard to be among the top two teams. Realistically we can’t dream of winning the league now,” he said.

Eagles have 53 points from 26 games whereas leaders Nyasa Big Bullets have 61 points from 25 games.

Third-placed Eagles have 51 points from 26 matches while fourth-placed Wanderers have 50 points from 25 games.
