Coach Justin Chinama has insisted that Choma Eagles are not under pressure to remain at the top of the FAZ Super League table ahead of this weekend’s week three games.
Eagles are the surprise league leaders with six points from the first two games.
The team’s resolve to remain at the top of the table will be tested on Saturday when they travel to Napsa Stars in Lusaka.
“No, we are not under pressure. We have so far played well, worked hard and deserve to be on top,” Chinama said.
He, howeve, admitted that it won’t be easy for Choma to maintain top spot.
“It is not going to be easy so it cause for a lot of hard work, you know every team wants to be there (on top),” he said.
Chinama adds:”We are only hoping that the boys won’t lose focus.”
On the match against Napsa, Chinama said:”We are taking each game seriously. We have to work hard knowing that Napsa is a good side as well.”
Eagles kicked off the campaign with an away 1-0 win over Lusaka Dynamos before edging Green Buffloes with a similar score-line at home.
