Dynamos have re-employed Zambian coach Jacob Sakala after redeploying the entire technical staff to the Limpopo side's development programme.

This after they secured only one point from the five National First Division (NFD) Inland Stream matches since the start of the season.

The redeployed trio are Lifa Qosha, Raymond Mdaka and Humphrey Sithole. The move was confirmed yesterday by the club's boss, Pat Malabela, after his side allowed Black Leopards to come from two goals down and equalise in the last minute on Saturday at Thulamahashe stadium.

"I cannot allow a situation wherein we lose unnecessarily through the same mistakes. We normally score first and cannot defend our lead, with the worst being yesterday [Saturday] whereby we conceded two goals during the last 10 minutes," said Malabela.

Leopards should have wrapped up the match in the first half but were let down by poor finishing. Dynamos had only one chance in the first stanza that was fluffed by Clement Bisong.

Gerald Modabi's well taken free kick gave the Dynamites the lead in the 75th minute and three minutes later Mayasisislua Lubanzadio scored an own goal to make it 2-0.

Mongezi Bobe pulled one back for Lidoda Duvha in the 80th minute and the equaliser was scored by Thabo Mongalo in the third minute of referee's optional time.

Elsewhere, Pretoria University maintained their lead on the log when they thrashed Winners Park 4-0, while Jomo Cosmos beat Mpumalanga Black Aces 3-1.

In the Coastal Stream, FC Cape Town beat Hanover Park 1-0 to win the Cape Town derby and cement their lead. Second placed Carara Kicks pipped Nathi Lions 1-0 to maintain second spot on the log.
