Nkana head coach Manfred Chabinga attributed his team's humiliating 3-0 loss at the hands of Power Dynamos at Arthur Davies Stadium on Sunday to complacency from the players.
Chabinga feels his key players did not show up for derby which was a sign that the team would lose the game.
"We know somehow there was that complacency, If you look at our midfield especially our key players they were out of form and not even one gave us hope of coming back which is a sign that you will not win the game," he said.
" It's football anything can happen in football and we have to admit that whether you lose to your bitter rivals or any other team, " he added.
Chabinga believes the Nkana players need to be psyched to get over the loss and that a lot of work is needed to get back on track.
"It's matter a matter of psyching them and making them understand that football is win-loss and a draw but we have to work hard," he said.
Goals from Fred Mulambia, Davy Daka and Luka Chamanga gave Power dynamos a well deserved 3-0 win and sent them to seventh on the log.
