Dynamos beat the Zambian giants away from home last Thursday at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola. The victory means the Elite are one of a number sides inside the top eight of the division who could challenge for the title.
Zesco have led the way for most of the season alongside the likes of NAPSA Stars and Power Dynamos. Nonetheless, Phiri says he was happy with the win over Team Ya Ziko and is confident his club are in the hunt for the league crown.
He told Zambia’s Daily Mail, “I am very happy that our outing has been very successful and now we are back on track. We can look forward to being part of the teams that are campaigning for the championship.
“I think it’s just figures to show that we are contenders. I think we have moved up on the log. I think the top eight are still in contention to win the championship. So it’s good to see that we are closer to the log leaders and it gives us a good feeling that we are in this position.”
