NAPSA Stars coach Tenant Chilumba is concerned that his players ‘switch off’ during matches.
Chilumba said in an interview in Lusaka on Sunday that the technical bench will work on the concentration aspect.
Napsa beat Real Nakonde 3-0 in a Super Division Week 15 match at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.
Leaders Napsa have 28 points, two better than Lusaka Dynamos, who have two games in hand.
“We wanted to get maximum points from this game. But we struggled in both halves. We were playing a team which is struggling and we failed to play our usual game.
“But I am happy that we managed to get three points. All we need now is to keep pushing the boys…it’s a youthful team but again they [players] are lacking concentration somehow,” Chilumba said.
Real coach Mathews Njovu said the team is not going anywhere if the current performance continues.
“We still have a lot of work to do. The performance of the team is not impressing at all and this might cost us,” Njovu said.
Real are bottom with eight points.
Nchanga Rangers interim coach Evans Sakala accused referee Janny Sikazwe of favouring Red Arrows.
“The game was badly handled. Otherwise, this game was ours. The referee [Janny Sikazwe] was very unfair. He could have just let the two teams play than favouring the other team,” Sakala said.
Arrows coach Honour Janza described the match as tough and was surprised that his team managed to get a point.
