By Innocent Muchochomi in Chegutu

Telone FC coach Abnezer Gorembeu heaped praise on his charges after their solitary strike plunged Berks into murky Mash West Division 2B relegation waters on Sunday at Lambourne Farm ground in Chegutu.

In this see-saw derby that attracted a large crowd, Tapiwa Phiri’s strike separated the two sides.

After the game jubilant Gorembeu was short of superlatives to describe his side’s bravery.

“The boys had the zeal to conquer. They played as one unit and encouraged each other to keep fighting.

“Berks know our players and type of play but we managed to outwit them as we utilised territorial advantage. Thanks to the boys for the perseverance and resilience,” said Gorembeu.

While Telone were comfortable playing at the uneven farm field, Berks coach Richard Nyandoro was not happy with the ground condition and how the match officials handled the game.

“The state of the field deterred my boys to exhibit their skill. How unplayable the ground was, coupled with questionable officiating contributed to our falling otherwise the fairest result was a draw.”

Nyandoro however dismissed grapevine talk that Berks directors had warned they were going to fire him if he loses in this derby

“I have never heard anything of that nature. I’m hearing it from you,” he said.
