Nkana legend Jericho Shinde has told his old team to improve as the 2017 FAZ Super Division campaign advances.
12th placed Nkana have nine points from seven matches played.
Former star midfielder Shinde said players must take responsibility over Nkana’s slow start to the season.
“The players need to pull up their socks. Mind you this season is very competitive,” the ex-Zambia star said.
Nkana at the weekend drew goalless against champions Zanaco away in Lusaka.
“To be honest, I think we (Nkana) are not up to scratch. There are a lot of areas in which we need to improve as a team,” Shinde said.
Nkana have recorded two wins, three draws and two defeats.
“It is the players who must solve this problem. The players need to believe in themselves. Players have a big responsibility to improve the team’s performance,” Shinde said.
