Sensational coach Mumamba Numba came to aid of goalkeeper, Toaster Nsabata following an error which led to Mighty Mufulira Wanderers scoring an equaliser.
Numba explained that such mistakes were normal in football especially that the ball bounced which made it difficult for Nsabata to handle it.
“I must say that, the overall performance of the team was very good, am very much impressed with the application of each and every player, but I think the goalkeeper made a mistake which is acceptable in football,” Numba told Zanaco media after the match.
“Such mistakes occur especially when the ball bounces down, it’s very difficult to hold such a ball. We can’t put the blame on him, we just have to accept the result and move on,” He added.
Chitiya Mususu slotted home from close range after 15 minutes to put the Bankers in the lead. Mufulira Wanderers came back into that match after former Zanaco striker Kwame Attram was gifted a chance eleven minutes into the second half after the ball bounced awkwardly and Toaster failed to deal with it.
Zanaco remain third on the log with 30 points and need to beat Prison Leopards on the final day to stand a chance of playing continental football.
