The pensioners Napsa Stars FC host Bankers Zanaco FC in a week 12 MTN Super League encounter slated for 15hours at Woodlands Stadium today.
Mohamed Fathi’s led technical bench has drilled this Napsa Stars side both mentally and physically going into this game which will see Napsa extend their points to 24 on the log and maintain second position if a win is recorded.
These two teams have had tough matches played against one another with the last six meetings seeing Napsa Stars FC record three wins in the league while Zanaco has recorded two wins, one during the league and the other was a Barclays Cup final win in 2017.
The other matches have ended in draws.
It’s a local derby and this Mohamed Fathi coached side is fully aware of how this will be a tough match, and captain Dickson Chapa tells Napsa Stars FC MEDIA that the match should be taken with all the seriousness it deserves.
And it is unfortunate that this Mohamed Fathi coached side will be missing services of striker Laudit Mavugo and speedy winger Austin Banda who are currently nursing injuries. But this does not seem to bother coach Fathi who says everyone in his team is always ready to doing a better job.
Fathi however will have services of striker Bornwell Mwape who was out in the last game played against Kabwe Youth owing to a red card accumulated during a match played against Forest Rangers FC.
And going into this game, Napsa Stars FC has played 10 games, won six, drawn three and lost one, while Zanaco has only played seven games , won three, drawn two and lost two.
