Wedson Nyirenda wary of stubborn Konkola Blades 

ZANACO head coach Wedson Nyirenda is expecting a tough match this afternoon as his side visits the Konkola Stadium in Chililabombwe. 

Nyirenda says Konkola Blades play good football and that he knows what to expect from them and their coach Beston Chambeshi. 

“I think we have done very well, we have touched all the departments and I think we were lacking in the breaking of the lines in the last game despite creating some good  chances to score. I think we have done the corrections this time,” he said. 

“We are playing Konkola, it’s a stubborn team, they play good football, and coach (Beston ) Chambeshi, we know what to expect but I think the team looks ready.”

The Bankers are coming off a 1-1 draw against Zambia Police sponsored outfit, Nkwazi. 

Nyirenda feels failure to deal with the second ball especially during set pieces led to them failing to collect maximum points last weekend. 

“We were loose in marking, especially in set pieces. We ended up conceding from ball watching on the second ball and Konkola is equally good with the same tactics,” Nyirenda said. 

“The mood I think is okay, the players recognize that we are a big team, but we have to understand this is a team in the making. We are still in the process of checking who is who and in which formation and tactic. I think these are things that are expected in a team that is being built. Come end of season we want to finish in a decent position so that we start off on a high next season because we would have had all the players in place playing in the same style.” 

Kick off at Konkola Stadium is set for 15h00.
