FOLLOWING Sunday’s 1-0 defeat to Dynamos at the National Sports Stadium, Highlanders coach Kelvin Kaindu has bemoaned lack of character in his side.

Washington Pakamisa scored his first goal of the season to help Dynamos cemented their authority on the Bulawayo giants who last beat them in 2006.

The Harare giants are now in second place on the league table while Highlanders slid down to fourth.

“I think we had done everything for this match in terms of preparations including psyching the players to be in the right frame of mind. But we continued to show lack of character as has been the case in previous seasons,” Kaindu said.

“There was bad attitude when some players failed to positively respond to certain situations. There was a lot of stake in this match but our play did not suggest so although we were a bit improved in the second half.”

Kaindu fielded third choice goalkeeper Njabulo Nyoni to prepare for the imminent departure of Munyaradzi Diya and Ariel Sibanda.

Nyoni appeared jittery in between the post but Kaindu defended his goalkeeper.

“I cannot blame him for that goal because he was left exposed after their (Dynamos) striker broke loose. Njabulo is a good goalkeeper and I think he will do well for us.”

Highlanders return to their Barbourfields Stadium base next Sunday where they will host struggling Black Rhinos.
