Pressure is on Zesco – ZanacoBy Nyambe Lubasi on 29 Nov 2017
Zanaco insist the pressure is on leaders Zesco United heading into the finish line for the 2017 FAZ Super Division title.
The defending champions are breathing down Zesco’s neck on 70 and 71 points respectively heading into this Saturday’s title-deciding round.
Green Buffaloes too are in that tight race in 3rd place and tied on points with Zanaco but with an inferior goal difference.
Zanaco and Buffaloes closed-in on the leaders on Sunday after similar 2-1 away wins over Buildcon and Red Arrows respectively.
Zesco on the other hand failed to maintain their distance with the duo after a 0-0 away draw at Green Eagles.
“Of course it is Zesco who are under pressure because they are the ones on top,” Zanaco assistant coach Dabid Chilufya said.
“They were five points ahead and now it has been cut to one point so they under pressure.”
Zesco must beat Mighty Mufulira Wanderers at home in Ndola this Saturday to ensure they have the last say in this matter.
Mighty, though, most also win knowing that a defeat will see them demoted.
They will also be the second successive relegation threatened team Zesco will play after Eagles.
“Besides mighty have to make sure they win this game to survive. That is why Zesco drew with Eagles because Eagles needed to survive,” Chilufya said.
Zanaco host 11th placed Forest Rangers who have survived while Buffaloes await Eagles, the side that held Zesco over the weekend.
In their respective first leg matches, Zesco beat Mighty 2-1; Buffaloes defeated Eagles 2-0 while Zanaco were 1-0 winners over Forest.
“We have forest and it is more comfortable for us to win,” Chilufya said.Related Items
