Mulawo upbeat about Napsa Stars survival prospects

Napsa Stars coach Alfred Mulawo believes his team will play in the Super League next season despite a poor start in the first half of the 2015 season.

The Lusaka – based outfit which won the Barclays Cup in 2012 and finished in 5th position last season has had a tumultuous 2015 campaign in which they have registered three wins and two draws in fourteen outings.

“My immediate target is that the team survives relegation,” Mulawo told following a goalless draw with Konkola Blades at Woodlands Stadium on Sunday.

“Am very confident that we are going to survive because there is improvement in performance in every game we are playing.

“My players are beginning to understand my philosophy and I am very happy with their conduct,” said the former Lusaka Tigers coach.

Mulawo, who had previously worked as assistant coach at Red Arrows, took charge of Napsa Stars after his predecessor Hector Chilombo managed only a single win in eight matches.

Under Mulawo, the team has registered two wins, one draw and three losses and still lies in fifteenth position with eleven points.

“We are taking each game differently and we have taken some lessons from this game that’s why I am saying we will survive relegation.”

Mulawo is confidential his team will finish the first half of the season on a high note by defeating their next opponents, Nkwazi.

“We are definitely going to win our next game; we have to, because we want to give our supporters the win they have been asking for,” he said.
