POWER Dynamos coach Kelvin Kaindu is worried with the increased number of players who have sustained injuries as the team competes in the transitional MTN/FAZ Super League.
Speaking after guiding Power Dynamos to a 2-2 draw with NAPSA Stars in a week-7 fixture which saw team Captain Alex Ng’onga sustaining an injury, Kaindu said his side would have to make numerous changes due to the number of injuries recorded.
“It is worrying because this is the challenge which we had last season. We have Godfrey Ngwenya who is out injured, today we had Alex Ng’onga injured, Allan Kamwanga is also out injured a number of injuries will obviously affect us especially that we have three of our starters injured. We have another player who is out with a red card again that means we have to make some changes in terms of positioning but we just have to concentrate,” Kaindu said.
Kaindu praised his boys for coming from behind twice to avoid defeat to NAPSA Stars in front of their home fans.
He however noted that there is need for Power Dynamos to improve in a few areas as they continue to fight for the league which is still open.
“We lost concentration in the first half of the game and allowed our opponents to score and the second goal we allowed I think the defender could have prevented that.
“We just gave them easy goals but we worked for our goals. We had a goal disallowed, we hit the cross, the convention rate was not good but if you are a coach with a team that is able to create chances, I think you have little work to do.
“What we need is to build the character and believe in ourselves. There are few areas where we need to manage but if you have a team which is scoring almost in all the games it is a plus for us,” he said.
Meanwhile, NAPSA Stars coach Mohamed Fathy has urged NAPSA Stars supporters to continue supporting the team as they target to do well in their next league fixtures.
Fathy has reaffirmed his desire to strengthen his team’s defence which has allowed five goals in the last three matches. “We are scoring but we have to think about covering our defense and what I can promise our supporters in the next game is balance for NAPSA the league is still open we are not far from the top team and I think we will keep pushing from that point. I am just asking the supporter’s to stand by the team, we will keep pushing to win our next games,” Fathy said.
