Goals will come-Pasuwa says ahead of league

Pasuwa speaking

FCB Big Bullets Head Coach Calitso Pasuwa has assured club fans of goals with the league expected to kick off in April.

This follows the club's failure to capitalise on its own international tournament in which Bullets finished last and left fans worried.

He explained what they needed was a good combination and said the coming in of Mike Mkwate into the fold meant they have a replacement for dynamic midfielder Chimwemwe Idana.

Pasuwa admitted that following Idana’s departure, Bullets needed a ball player.

“I think the replacement for Idana is Mike. Idana was a playmaker for us, so Mike [arriving], is a plus sign for us and on the scorers, we still need to find them. We had Kajoke and Babatunde who left so with these guys we are testing; we need one who can be scoring goals for us.”

Reacting to the match itself, Pasuwa explained: “It was a very good game indeed where we were keeping possession away from our opponents and as I said, it’s pre-season and that’s one game where as a coach, I wasn’t having pressure and I was seated for almost thirty minutes when my boys were all over these guys, rotating the ball very well.

“But it was only one mistake and we were punished and that’s exactly what happened to us when we were playing the international games [in the CAF Champions League] where we got punished for two mistakes and the same thing happened again [today].

“In the second half, we tried to go forward but again it is the attacking thrust that we are lacking as you know we lost two of our best scorers or even one of our central midfielders, but again we still need to work on the attacking third from midfield to attack,” explained the Bullets head coach.
