Nkhatha’s disappointing debut
14 September 2018
DYNAMOS striker Kingston Nkhatha made his long awaited debut for the club in a dull 0-0 draw against Chapungu at Rufaro yesterday.
Nkhatha endured a dreadful 90 minutes in his first outing in blue and white, much against the high expectations on him.
With this particular game on the spotlight after the Glamour Boys’ humiliating 3-0 defeat to rivals Highlanders, Nkhatha seemingly had the chance to announce himself to the DeMbare faithful but his display attracted more criticism than applause.
The Dynamos fans booed the beefy striker who signed after making his name in South Africa following a series of stray passes in the second half, basically the story of his day.
He failed to deliver even a single shot at goal.
DeMbare coach Lloyd Mutasa defended his new signing stating the player still needs to shake off rust but hopes he will come true in their remaining fixtures.
“You know this is his first game and you cannot ask for much.
“Here and there he was getting close, he looked like he could score especially in the first half.
“Then you come into the second half it looked like a pump and rush, he is our target man but you play balls probably higher than him, you cannot expect him to deal with such balls.
“I’m sure he is shaking off the rust and we will see more of him as we go forward,” he said.
Mutasa’s men move to 30 points after the draw as they continue to linger just above the relegation zone.
