Zlatko Krmpotic has demanded his charges redeem themselves against Green Buffaloes on Wednesday.
This is after Saturday’s 1-0 away loss at Napsa Stars that saw them slump to their first league defeat of the 2017 season.
The defeat comes seven days before Zesco resume their 2017 CAF Confederation Cup engagements with a Group C opening match at home in
Ndola against Smouha of Egypt.
But before them, Zesco have a league date against Buffaloes in Ndola on May 10.
“My team didn’t play well (against Napsa).They didn’t play good in the opening half and we have lost our first game,” Krmpotic said.
“We are not thinking about the Confederation Cup because we have seven days before that game against Smouha.
“We have a game on Wednesday against Green Buffloes.
“We must win this game on Wednesday because that is very important for us.”
Victory on Wednesday should put Zesco back into the driving seat at the summit of the FAZ Super Division table before resuming their league on May 20.
