Zanaco believe the team’s’ last two results are an indicator that their FAZ Super Division title defence is now well and truly back on track.

Zanaco began the season with a 1-1 home draw against Red Arrows on April 8 before losing 2-1 away at Green Eagles on April 15.

They followed that up with a 6-0 home win over Mufulira Wanderers on April 23 before collecting a 2-0 away victory at promoted Konkola Blades on April 29.

“The points we dropped at Green Eagles and Red Arrows were a bit of a setback but we knew we would bounce back from that set-back,” Zanaco assistant coach Dabid Chilufya said.

“What I can say is that after beating ‘Mighty’ Mufulira Wanderers we saw that the team had began to show signs of a comeback with the confidence to win.”

The two wins have propelled the 2016 champions up to 3rd place on 7 points, just three points behind leaders Zesco United and second placed Lumwana Radiants who are separated by goal difference.

Zanaco could close that gap or stay in the top three with a home victory on Sunday at home against Nakambala Leopards at the National Heroes Stadium.
