SUPER Division Forest Rangers has recruited four strikers, among them two Congolese, in a quest to remain in the top flight.
Former Nkana forwards Patrick Kabamba and Josephat Kasusu and Chipempele Wa Chipempele and Sam Wa Barack both from the Democratic Republic of Congo have joined the Ndola side.
In an interview in Ndola on Thursday, club chairman Richard Kalasa said Forest are going through a bad patch which needs attention.
Kalasa, who is also the Ndola deputy mayor, said the team is performing below par after the departure of some key players.
“We are trying by all means to replace those players who left the club for greener pastures. The club is going through a bad time, we lost some key players during the transfer window but we are hopeful that the team will soon start collecting maximum points with the help of new recruits,” he said.
Kalasa is optimistic the new players will blend well and help the Dola Hill outfit regain its rhythm.
Forest sold Walter Bwalya, Freddy Tshimenga and Diego Apanene, Morgan Kaoma, and Arthur Kasolota. The five helped the Ndola outfit to fifth position at the half mark of the season.
Kalasa said Forest are targeting five victories in the remaining nine games to be assured of safety, starting with tomorrow’s home game against Mufulira Wanderers.
