Mponda said his team needs to go back to their previous style which he described as nice and beautiful passing football which pleased the followers.
“You Journalists talk a lot of experienced players but how many experienced players have cost us as Premier Bet Wizards?
“As coaches we need to make some changes as we need to go back to our drawing board and what we used to do, play using young players for people to continue loving this team,” said Mponda.
The former National team defender further said in the remaining games he will make sure that his team collects maximum points so that they can be boosted as they are fighting relegation.
Wizards who are on position 14 with 19 points are only remaining with eight games , with five games to play as hosts while three matches are away from their backyard but ‘Mjojo’ Mponda said his side is not fearing any team.
