Power Dynamos have said they will heal in time to face CF Mounana of Gabon in next weekends CAF Confederation Cup.
Mounana will host Power in a first round, first leg match on March 15 in Libreville.
And Power’s buildup for that continental outing suffered a serious dent on Saturday when they lost 3-1 to Zesco United on Saturday at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe in the 2015 Charity Shield final.
“It can affect them now but we have some days to motivate them and then we will go to Gabon motivated,” Power assistant coach Anderson Phiri said.
Phiri also admitted that the team may have been a little complacent especially after beating Al Khartoum 2-0 last Sunday to advance 2-1 on aggregate to the first round of the CAF Confederation Cup.
The loss also ended Power’s eight-match unbeaten run against Zesco who had prior to Saturday’s game trace their last defeat at the hands of the Ndola side to 2010.
“Maybe we were a bit relaxed that we had been beating zesco for sometime now,” Phiri said.
“Maybe after our win in the Sudanese game maybe they just thought they would take this game in the same way.”
