Silver Strikers coach Daniel Kabwe says he is not worried of the team’s poor away record as they travel to Blantyre to face Ntopwa FC and Red Lions this weekend.
The Bankers have so far lost twice to Ekwendeni Hammers and Civil Service United, both in away ties.
However, Kabwe says he is not concerned whether a match is away or home.
The Bankers have been displaced at the top of the table by rivals Civil Service United, but victory in the two away fixtures will see them reclaim the top spot.
However, the Zambian tactician said this does not give the Bankers pressure.
He said: “It is not the issue of pressure. You cannot count chickens before the eggs are hatched. So, for the games we have not played, we don’t know what will come out. What we are focussing on is winning every game.”
This is Kabwe’s first season with Silver and his bosses have made it clear that they want nothing short of winning the championship.
The Bankers also roped in assistant coach McDonald Mtetemela and second assistant coach McDonald Yobe, ahead of the 2021 season.
The Bankers have 22 points from 10 games and Mtetemela said so far, it is good.
He said: “Our preparations are based on what we want to achieve this season—to win the championship. We just have to remain positive so that we win all our two games.”
Mtetela however, said the Bankers are not underrating their opponents who are both coming from losses in previous league matches.
Red Lions lost 1-0 to Mzuzu Warriors while Ntopwa were thrashed 4-1 by Be Forward Wanderers.
He said: “We know these are different games. These are two different teams. We are not looking at results from previous matches; we just have a target which we need to achieve which is to win both games.”
