Relegation-threatened Napsa Stars caretaker coach Kampamba Chintu believes they have a great chance to get a positive result against second placed Zanaco this Saturday despite losing their last three league games.
Napsa host Zanaco this Saturday in a Lusaka derby clash at Woodlands Stadium.
They head into the game four days after losing 1-0 away to Kabwe Warriors in what was Chintu’s first game in charge on Wednesday following his boss Mohamed Fathi’s departure last Monday.
Fathi was sidelined following a string of poor results in his final three games in which Napsa won one and lost two, conceding eleven goals and scoring seven goals in a timeframe that they beat Indeni 4-3, lost 4-1 away to Nkana, and later fell 4-2 at home against Green Eagles.
“The boys fought hard (against Warriors) and they played according to what we wanted. They are just a few areas where we need to improve on now,” Chintu said.
“I think after they conceded four goals in our last loss, we have now conceded just one goal against Warriors so we hope that in the next game we will work hard so that we keep a clean sheet.”
Napsa have 36 points with five games remaining in which to save themselves as they face the prospect of going down for the first time since they bounced back in 2012 following an eleven-year absence from the FAZ Super League.
