Triangle's bubble burst

HARARE - Triangle coach Kelvin Kaindu slammed the state of the Lafarge Stadium turf as his side succumbed to their first defeat of the season at the hands of Castle Lager Premiership novices Flame Lilly.

Moses Demera’s 47th minute goal was all Flame Lilly needed to register their first win of the season.

With the defeat, Triangle are now on third position with 13 points while the prison wardens moved to 10th position with five points.

“I think one thing our opponents did is to change the venue to deny us from playing our normal game. It was difficult for us to play our normal passing game at this venue,” Kaindu said after the match.

“Our game was totally affected by the bumpy pitch, forcing us to bypass the midfield, you could see even our opponents were failing to control the ball.

“But we are not the only team to play on this pitch, so we should not complain, all the teams in the league are going to come here.

“We knew at one time we were going to lose and we have to forget about this game and start to concentrate on our next games.

“We are not used to lose but in football you have to accept all results and we now need to work hard going forward.

Flame Lilly coach Nesbert Saruchera praised his team for a good performance.

“I am very happy to collect the first full set of points and I want to thank my boys for a good game,” he said.

“For the ground, I think this is one of the best pitches in the country so Triangle must not complain about the pitch.”
