Chilumba’s Power bench relieved after victory

Sports Chilumba's Power bench relieved after victory

The Tennant Chilumba led Power Dynamos technical bench is relieved to see the club return to winning ways after Saturday’s 1-0 home win over Red Arrows at Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe.

The victory came under a dark cloud for Chilumba that threatened to end his three year stay at Power after losing two successive games from three round of matches played into the 2016 FAZ Super Division season.

Chilumba came into the game handed with a five-match ultimatum to turn around Power’s fortunes or be fired.

“Firstly, glory be to God who has been with us during that period we lost two games. This win is very much a relief we needed this win and nothing else,” Power assistant coach Anderson Phiri said.

“When you lose the coaches are on the chopping board, when you win it is the players who have done a re-commendable job,” Phiri said.

On the other hand, Arrows coach Mathews Phiri blamed referee Francis Lombe for the defeat.

Lombe allowed a controversial 78th minute goal scored by Martin Phiri who is alleged to have been in an offside position to stand.

“We lost the game to a referee. How can a referee handle games like this?This is just week five and the referee are biased like this,” Phiri fumed.

“This is football we use a lot of money to prepare teams for these games not to be given a silly goal like that. This is very poor officiating,” he added.

This was Arrows’ first loss of the season.
