Zesco primed for Napsa clash



Zesco United have vowed to attack from the word go when they host Napsa Stars at Trade Fair Grounds this Saturday.

"We have not lost in the league this season and our opponents are aware of that fact so we are currently the team everyone wants to beat," team spokesperson Justin Mumba said.

"We are in a tough competition so we can't take our opponents lightly. We have never played against Napsa Stars before. Our biggest challenge is that we don't know how they play."

"When we play at home our strategy is to attack, that is our type of game. The 4-4-2 formation has worked well for us this season and we will go out with the same formation on Saturday. We have to make sure we set the pace for that game," stated Mumba.

He further pointed out that Zesco United are currently top of the league due to the good preparations the club had in pre season.

"We took our team to South Africa, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Sudan where we played against top sides from those countries. Although we lost all our pre-season matches, the aim was to expose all our boys to stronger opposition in Africa. As an ambitious and progressive club, we are looking at the bigger picture."
