IT was not just the result that was concerning about Maritzburg United’s 1-0 National First Division Coastal Stream defeat against Nathi Lions at King Zwelithini Stadium in Umlazi yesterday, but the manner of it too. The Pietermaritzburg side went a goal down to an 18th-minute strike by Sandile Gumede in an uninspiring game. United striker Godfrey Doboro missed two sitters, in the first and 58th minutes, that enraged the United directors. After the game Doboro was angrily reprimanded by United financial director Imraan Kadodia, but was hauled back into the changeroom by coach Ian Palmer. The incident indicated that, once again, there are problems that run deeper than a mere slump.
