“For example, in the match against Plateau [United] the defensive role was played by Jonas Mkude and Mzamiru Yasin who played really well. Apart from the two, we have players like Said Ndemla and Larry Bwalya who were not used despite their undoubted quality.
“Everyone knows that Simba’s midfield quality is good, but I am willing to fight with them for playing time. I will try to be unique but effective to have the opportunity to play in the first team.”

“We wanted to defend the goal that we missed and make sure we finished the game without conceding as well.
“However, our rivals had one last chance and that put pressure on us. It was a difficult situation, but the coach [Sven Vandebroeck] I saw it and I’m sure he will rectify it. “
