Hwange cry foul after Whawha loss

GWERU - Hwange coach Nation Dube was left fuming at referee Munyaradzi Majoni after his side went down 1-0 to Whawha in a Castle Lager Premiership match here yesterday.

Dube was not pleased with the way Majoni handled the match and felt the referee from Kwekwe had an agenda to fail his team.

A Kenneth Bhuka strike two minutes from the break condemned Hwange to their third defeat of the season and left them in 11th place with 13 points.

“We will accept the result but I was not pleased with the officiating,” Dube said after the game.

“It was evident that he was helping them. Like for instance, most of the decisions were going against my boys. At some point my player was pulled in front of the referee and he waved play on.

“It was just poor officiating and it appeared he had an agenda to make sure we lose the game. Such is life and we now need to go back to the drawing board to ensure we return back to winning ways.”

While Dube was mourning, Whawha coach Lloyd Mutasa was happy with his team's performance and feels the win could be the start of good things to come for the prison wardens.

“I think after losing three straight matches, the win was really needed and I am happy the boys delivered,” Mutasa said after the game.

“It was also good that we did not conceded goals having let in a lot if goals in our previous matches.

“I think it’s a huge confidence boost for the boys. I believe it will go a long way in instilling confidence to youngsters.

“We hope to keep the momentum in our next matches and breathe life into our campaign.”

The win was Whawha's third of the season and it took their points tally to 11 points while they also jumped to 13th place on the log.
