How Mine…….…….(0) 1

HOW Mine coach Kelvin Kaindu was a frustrated man after his charges had to come from behind to salvage a point against a very defensive-minded Tsholotsho in a one-sided Castle Premiership encounter at White City yesterday.
After taking the lead on 35 minutes through a Collins Dhuwa strike, Tsholotsho went on to employ delaying tactics, but their efforts were unsuccessful as Tsepo Ranthokoane’s equaliser on 63 minutes ensured a share of the spoils.
After the match Kaindu expressed disappointment at the hosts’ conduct, which he said had taken away the entertainment value from the match.
“It’s disappointing if we are going to play football like this when you have a team that is bringing four footballs, but out of the four we are only using one and the rest you can’t find them. Let’s win fairly because people are paying to watch football and what we are doing is entertainment, but if we are failing to manage ball boys then we have to remove them,” Kaindu said.
Tsholotsho coach Lizwe Sweswe brushed off the time-wasting accusations.
“We don’t work on time wasting at training and anyway, I did not see incidents of time-wasting. The boys played very well and our game plan and strategy worked very well,” Sweswe said.
