Zlatko Krmpotic is glad his charges collected the three points despite Green Eagles threatening to rally against Zesco United in Sunday’s 3-2 home win in Ndola.
The win saw Zesco bounce back from their 1-0 home loss in the Ndola derby to Forest Rangers on July 9.
Zesco were leading 3-0 before the first hour-mark of the opening 45 minute before Eagles hit back to narrow the gap at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.
John Chingandu struck twice in the 1st and 28th minutes while Jesse Were scored in-between with a 22nd minute goal.
However, Eagles breached Zesco through Mwila Phiri in the 37th minute, to see the teams go 3-1 at halftime, and he completed his brace in the 59th minute.
“No I am not worried. I think it (the narrow win) is psychological and I think will be better in the next game (against Wanderers),”Krmpotic said.
“And also maybe some national team players were tired.
“But we must also continue playing for the three points.”
Seventh placed Zesco visit third from bottom Mufulira Wanderers on Wednesday.
Zesco have 26 points from14 matches with four games in hand.
They are nine points behind leaders Napsa Stars who have played 18 games.
