Escom United coach, Charles Manda is confident his side will not drop rapidly from the TNM Super League assuring fans that there is no need to press the panic button despite being stuck on the bottom table.
The Electricians, who have two points from five games, are yet to secure any victory raising fear to their fans that their team might be heading to relegation zone this season.
However, Manda told Nyasa Times that it was too early to judge them, as the league has just kicked off.
“It is too early for people to think that our side will be stuck on the bottom table for ever. All what we need is to win two or three matches in order to step out from the relegation zone,” said Manda.
Since, the ouster of more than ten experienced players, the electricians kicked off the 2012-2013 season on a bumpy note.
Manda said the club will be training at a very high level with “a positive atmosphere”.
“I am convinced we have got the players and many games ahead of us that we can get ourselves out of this position we are in,” he said.
