Head coach Elvis Chiweshe had to be escorted off the field by the police after the match following the costly defeat which left them trailing log leaders Gunners.

A section of Dynamos fans in the notorious Vietnam stand threw missiles on the pitch forcing the referee to stop the match for about five minutes as missiles continued to rain on the pitch.

Police had to intervene to disperse the irate fans after more than 30 minutes of skirmishes.

Midfielder Ronald Sengu and Francis Mandiwanzira scored the two goals that counted for Lengthens to see off their more illustrious opponents.

Shoko, who was in Mapuya’s car when its windscreen was smashed said he was shocked by the events. “I was shocked by the events at the stadium. I am still nursing an injury sustained in a match against Gunners and now this one again,” said Shoko, who however, said the injury was not serious.

“We know the fans want positive results but reacting like this is not good for the team. It should be remembered that every team loses and after all there is still a lot to play for. We have not yet been beaten to the title. Fans need to be patient,” said Shoko.

Dynamos now occupy second position on the log standings with 47 points from 25 matches.Moses Chunga’s Gunners lead the pack with 49 points from the same number of matches. Five matches now remain before the season ends.
