Zanaco head coach Richard Ngulube was happy with the lads fighting spirit.

“Red Arrows were a better side in the second half, we started well in the first but did not do well in the second,maybe it is because of the substitutions that we made because i wanted each and every player to play. The strikers finishing was bad too and that made us miss alot of chances “

Ngulube adds that Injuries on major players has also contributed in today’s play.

“Last week we were hit with injuries, 5 of our key players got injured and were not part of the team today.”
