Dwangwa United coach regrets cup exit


Dwangwa United Coach, Macdonald Mtetemera, has expressed his disappointment with his team’s Fisd Challenge Cup exit after losing 1-0 to giants, Silver Strikers, at Silver Stadium on Saturday.

In a post-match reaction, Mtetemera said his charges were just unlucky to lose the match.

“We contained them for the better part of the game. We were the better team on the pitch, but Silver scored that lucky goal,” Mtetemera said.


He added that his side will now focus on the TNM Super League to survive the chop.

Blessings Tembo scored the only goal of the game in the 72nd minute to inspire the Bankers to the last-four of the competition.

It was Tembo’s second successive goal in the competition having also scored in a 1-0 victory over Nyasa Big Bullets two weeks ago.


The Bankers did not have an easy ride as Dwangwa controlled the proceedings with Cuthbert Sineta and Jack Chiona on top of their game.

Chiona was denied by the upright after a header.

After the game, relief was the prevalent emotion for Silver’s Assistant Coach, Lovemore Fazili.

“Dwangwa came to win the match but our experience was vital. Cup games are always tough and we are really happy to reach the semifinals,” Fazili said in a post-match interview.

The quarterfinals produced no upsets as Blue Eagles also advanced to the semifinals.

At Nankhaka Stadium, Eagles defeated minnows, Tiakalulu FC, 2-0, courtesy of Philip Masiye and Elijah Kabingu’s goals.
