Coach George Lwandamina has declared that Zesco United are not panicking after recording two consecutive draws in four days.
Champions Zesco on Tuesday rallied from a goal down to draw 1-1 against Mufulira Wanderers in a rescheduled match at home just three days after Green Buffaloes held them to a similar draw.
Lwandamina repeated that Zesco were still in the race to defend their FAZ Super Division title.
“We wanted to win the game against Wanderers but unfortunately we drew. Draws are part of the game,” he said.
“The league is miles away from ending, we can’t even press the panic button now,” Lwandamina said.
Second placed Zesco sits on 33 points, seven behind leaders Zanaco, after playing 16 matches.
“We would have loved to close in on the leaders but this is football,” he said.
Zesco have now shifted focus to Saturday’s home CAF Champions League match against Ivorian side Asec Mimosas set for Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.
