Zanaco feeling no pressure in catch-up raceBy Diggers Reporter on 27 Jul 2017
Zanaco have disclosed that they are able to cope with the pressure of fulfilling their games in hand as they begin to play catch-up in the race to retain the FAZ Super Division title.
The defending champions are 10th on the log with 26 points from 13 matches with six games in hand and are ten points behind leaders Napsa Stars.
On Wednesday, Zanaco made some headway in playing catch-up when they beat Forest Rangers 1-0 away in Ndola courtesy of a 52nd minute Ernest Mbewe goal to pick up four out of a possible 6 points in their last two games.
Assistant coach Dabid Chilfuya said Zanaco were slowly adjusting to their domestic obligations following their recent elimination from the 2017 CAF Champions League group stage.
“We have no pressure because we are taking each game as it comes and we have a lot of players we are shuffling them so that we don’t have fatigue,” Chilufya said.
“I know that when we play so many games, fatigue sets in, but we have players that deliver in the unplayed games so that we can catch-up with our friends.”
Chilufya is standing in for Mumamba Numba who is away on Zambia Under-17 duty at the 2017 COSAFA U17 Cup in Mauritius.
Meanwhile, Zanaco return to action this Saturday when they visit Red Arrows in a Lusaka derby clash at Nkoloma Stadium in a Week 20 fixture.Related Items
