RELEGATION bound Buildcon FC coach Nchimunya Mwitwa has described football as a painful game after the Ndola outfit struggled with 20 defeats in 26 matches played in the FAZ Super League.
Buidlcon are anchoring the Super League table with 10 points collected from two wins and four draws.
The team’s last Super League fixture ended in a 5-0 thrashing by the league leaders Power Dynamos who dominate the league with 50 points, seven points ahead of second-placed Green Buffaloes.
Speaking in an interview following last Sunday’s loss to Power, Mwitwa said it was painful that his team is struggling with defeats when it is playing good football.
“I don’t know what to say because it’s painful. Football is painful you lose 5-0 when you are trying to push so it’s painful. We have lost too many games this season but we will keep on pushing until the last game,” Mwitwa said.
“We played well against Power Dynamos and we hit the upright two times in the first half and we were looking okay but football being what it is, it is cruel sometimes. You may play one but one lapse, red card you lose,” he said.
Despite having no chance of escaping the relegation zone with eight games remaining, Mwitwa said Buildcon will continue to give their best on the pitch.
Buildcon will play Napsa Stars in their next fixture and Mwitwa said they will fight to get the maximum three points.
“We are not throwing in the towel. This is our job and we have to fight until the last game. Every game is a three pointer and we will have to play.
