Power Dynamos playmaker Larry Bwalya says they are still in the race for the 2017 FAZ Super Division table despite being eight points off the pace with six game left to play.
Power are 6th on 52 points while Zanaco lead on 60 points, Zesco are 2nd on 59 points and Buffaloes 3rd on 57 points while Nkana round-off the top four on 55 points.
The top two finishers will compete in the 2018 CAF Champions League while 3rd and 4th place finishers will qualify for the 2018 CAF Confederation Cup.
“We are still very confident until the end of the season.
” We have two crucial games coming up against Green Buffaloes and Zanaco,” Bwalya said.
Power will host Buffaloes this Saturday in Kitwe and Zanaco will visit Arthur Davies Stadium after November 11 to play those defining matches.
“If we manage to beat them, then we can pull back into strong contention for the league,” Bwalya said.
However,Power have already dropped points against two of the top four teams in their last two matches.
Power drew 1-1 away draw at Zesco on October 24 in Ndola after losing 1-0at home to Nkana on October 21 and cannot afford slip-ups against Zanaco and Buffaloes.
And Power have not won the league title since lifting their sixth crown in 2011 and finished second in 2012 and 2014.
