“The game was tough. It was a 50-50 affair, but my team defended very well and we came out victorious. I am impressed with my team because the team is coming from a lower division. Beating a team like Kamuzu Barracks is not a mean achievement for us,” said Dzimkambani.

Kamuzu Barracks head coach Charles Kamanga accepted the defeat, saying KB did not play according to instructions.

“Dedza Dynamos played a good game. We didn’t play as we prepared. Our supporters should not lose trust in us, this is just our third game. We will come back stronger,” said Kamanga.
