Coach Chilufya: Zanaco is back on track

Zanaco fc starting 11: File picture

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.
