Nyasa Big Bullets coach Nsanzurwimo Ramadhan and captain John ‘Kintu’ Lanjesi have said they are not under pressure after the Peoples Team’s unimpressive start in the TNM Super League which saw them collect just a point from their opening two games.
The People’s Team were held to a goalless draw by newcomers Chitipa United before slumping to a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Moyale Barracks last weekend.
However, Ramadhan said it is too early to start pressing the panic buttons.
“No, no, no. I am not [under pressure]. I know it’s painful to the Bullets family, but these are still early days, this is a marathon.
“And judging by the performance and results, you can actually see that the teams are still rusty coming from a lengthy off-season,” he said.
Ramadhan also said his team created a plethora of chances, but failed to make them count.
“So, there were lots of positives drawn from the match. We were also let down by officiation, it left a lot to be desired.”
On his part, Lanjesi said they have switched focus to Saturday’s Airtel Top 8 showdown against Silver Strikers.
“We could have done better, but we will pull through. Our focus is now on the match coming up against Silver.
“The coaches are working on the shortfalls that were noted in he two matches,” he said.
