dynamosHARARE- VIOLENCE marred the league match between Harare giants Dynamos and Lengthens at Rufaro Stadium yesterday as Dynamos fans turned against their team and hurled missiles on the pitch following their team's 2-0 defeat.

It was Dynamos’ second straight defeat in the league after they were handed a 2-1 defeat by Monomotapa in a midweek game on Wednesday. And a section of Dynamos fans in the Vietnam stand turned against their team and the coach as they failed to stomach a second successive defeat. The hooligans threw stones and plastic bottles on the pitch after Lengthens scored their second goal through Francis Mandiwanzira in injury time. Midfielder Ronald Sengu had scored the first goal for Lengthens.

The disturbances forced the referee to stop the match for about five minutes as missiles continued to rain on the pitch. The disgruntled fans also hurled obscene language at coach Elvis Chiweshe demanding his dismissal.

Police had to intervene to stop the fans from assaulting the team’s players.

They battled hard before they managed to disperse the irate fans. Play resumed later but the damage had already been done as Dynamos had lost their second successive league match.

The defeat saw Dynamos who have been leading the pack on the league table slipping to second position with 47 points from 25 matches- two points behind Gunners who are now leading the race.

Dynamos secretary Stan Kasukuwere could not be reached for comment to shed light on the decision the club management had arrived regarding the coach’s future withe club.
