Zesco United star Jesse Were is unfazed by the team’s slump - but instead feels confident on successfully defending the league title.
The champions have only collected one point from the last two games - the latest result being a 2-1 loss to the high-flying NAPSA Stars last weekend.
The results now sees Team Ya Ziko sitting in fourth position with four points off the top but a welcome two games in hand.
“It is not the first time we are going through this. It was a similar story last campaign and we all know what happened at the end of the season,” Were said via the club’s Facebook.
“Every team has its good and bad days. We are working very hard to ensure that positive results start coming in.”
The 30-year-old Kenyan, who has been out due to illness, took the moment to call on the supporters to continue playing their key role towards steering the team to glory.
“We are disappointed that we didn’t manage a comeback with maximum points. There are still a lot of games to be played and we as players are confident of winning the title once again,” Were added.
“The supporters are key to our success and they are also key in terms of turning the fortunes of the club. It is our job to win games but we can’t do that without their maximum support.
“I wish to thank all those who have not lost faith in this team in this difficult period,” concluded Were.
