the result and believes if they can turn more of their chances into goals, they
will cause a lot of problems for other teams.
"We are going to work on our finishing this week. One
day when the chances are taken we are going to really punish a team,"
Phiri told the club's official website.
"The guys are very confident and motivated. Our defence
has improved a lot and we managed to keep a clean sheet against Wits."
"The performance was very good. The boys worked hard,
played well and created a lot of chances. I feel that we deserved to win.

"We did everything right. The boys gave their all and
they followed instructions properly."
Stars travel to Harry Gwala Stadium on Saturday to take on
Maritzburg United in the Premiership.
Phiri added: "We are going to prepare well. We have
played three games so far and we have not lost a game. We have created many
chances but just not made use of them."
