CAPS United coach Lloyd Chitembwe has conceded the title after his team has fallen nineteen points behind log leaders FC Platinum.
The Green Machine is in the fifth position with 39 points with ten games left to the end of the season.
“The league title talk is now a bit more far-fetched, we have fallen way too far behind the leading pack,” Chitembwe told The Herald.
“What we have to do now is try and concentrate on collecting points. We are CAPS United, a very big institution and we ought to be competitive.”
But Chitembwe believes his charges must fight and finish the season in a good position.
“We must finish the season in a decent position, and we have to keep pushing, scoring and getting those points as we have to finish the season strongly.
“Second half of the season is always difficult as teams will be fighting for survival, strong finishes and the title,” he added.
