“MIGHTY” Mufulira Wanderers coach Alan Kamwanga has urged fans to continue supporting the team in its quest to remain in the Super division when the transitional league which has been divided into two streams, comes to an end.
Speaking after recording his first loss as Mighty coach after replacing Justin Chinama who has been given an indefinite suspension by the club’s executive for ‘ignoring advise on team composition’, Kamwanga said that the team was playing well and could improve if fans continued to support it.
“Kabwe Warriors came prepared they only had one chance which they utilized but I’m happy with the performance of the team, we made two changes and had three or four chances which we failed to utilize but the team is ok “To the fans, I need their support, yes we have lost but the league is still open we just need the support from the fans and the community,” Kamwanga said.
Defeat to Warriors relegated ‘Mighty’ to eighth position on the stream-A log with five points while Kabwe Warriors’ 1-0 win over ‘Mighty’ excited coach Tenant Chilumba who’s aim is to see his side doing better than the way they performed last season.
“It was a tough game, we came here to pick maximum points and I’m happy with the boys they put up a good fight but we still have to continue working hard because the league is still open.
“We are still working on concentration we did well with our preparations and the attitude of the boys is excellent I think we just have to continue pushing the boys,” Chilumba said.
Warriors escalated to second in stream-A of the MTN/FAZ Super League table after stunning Mufulira Wanderers 1-0 in a week seven fixture played on Saturday at Shinde Stadium in Mufulira.
A lone first half goal from Emmanuel Okuto was enough to hand Kabwe Warriors their second consecutive win which escalated Tenant Chilumba’s boys to 13-points, a point behind stream A leaders Zanaco who were held 1-1 by rejuvenated Green Buffaloes.
