Phiri buoyed by victory



Coach Patrick Phiri is pleased with Green Buffaloes’ progress as they jumped into third place on the Faz Super League table.

Buffaloes beat visitors Napsa Stars 3-1 at Woodlands Stadium in Lusaka on Saturday in a Super League Week 16 game to move three places up the table. The Army side is now seven points behind leaders Zesco United on 27 points from 16 matches played.

“This victory shows we are getting back to winning ways. We want to continue to have a comfortable finish in the league,” Phiri said.

The result also saw Buffaloes stretch their unbeaten run to six successive league games but comes on the back of a 1-1 away draw at struggling Kalulushi Modern Stars on July 27.

“Right now we just want celebrate this victory. It’s a well deserved victory,” the ex-Zambia and Nkana coach said.

Buffaloes fought back from 1-0 at half time to secure the three points. Buffaloes’ rally began in the 48th minute when striker Percy Bilyoti headed in a cross from Allan Mukuka after Napsa had taken the lead in the 11th minute via Harry Milanzi.

Eleven minutes later, an energised Buffaloes nudged ahead through midfielder Sebastian Mwansa, who delivered a clinical finish after some good work from Bilyoti.
