NKANA coach Beston Chambeshi says his team has no early pressure at the top of the league table.
Nkana shot to the summit of the MTN/FAZ Super League on Saturday at least 24 hours before early pace-setters NAPSA Stars played their second league match against Kansanshi Dynamos.
Nkana beat Buildcon 1-0 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola when striker Idris Mbombo in bullish form left goal keeper Ngeleka Katembua for dead to score his third goal of the season.
The win took Nkana to six points, level with Red Arrows who are second on goal difference.
Speaking in his post-match comments, Chambeshi refused to be carried away by the early log leadership saying ‘the league is still young.’
“No, we don’t have pressure because we have a lot of games but it may look like early, but you never know where we are going,” Chambeshi said.
“The league is still young we just have to continue working hard and maintain the work that we are doing. Maintain discipline in defence and I am happy with the input of the boys in training also.”
In other results on Saturday, Power Dynamos picked the first win of the season after dispatching Lusaka Dynamos 2-0 with Arrows beating Lumwana Radiants 1-0 in Lumwana.
Kabwe Warriors beat Nkwazi 1-0 while Forest Rangers and KYSA drew 1-1 in an early kick off in Ndola.
