Nkana Rebound Against a Poor Warriors

Sports Nkana Rebound Against a Poor Warriors

Nkana bounced back from a three-match winless run to beat visiting Kabwe Warriors by a convincing 2-0 victory at Wusakile in Kitwe on Saturday.

Warriors were poor and disjointed throughout that left even Nkana fans exasperated about their sworn enemies failure to live up to the old traditional rivalry of days gone by.

Happy Sichikolo’s side fell behind as early as the 6th minute after Maxwell Phiri headed in a free kick.

Warriors’ most tangible effort in the game came in the 23rd minute when former Konkola Blades and Kitwe United striker Joseph Bwalya tested Kennedy Kalale with a rasping shot from the edge of the box that came off the woodwork.

On the half hour mark, Nkana went two-nil up with another header this from man-of-the-match Rabby Lwambula who gave Warriors’ defence a torrid time.

Lwambula’s stellar shows’ major highlight came in the 34th minute with a cheeky back heel pass to team mate Victor Mwansa that was parried by the visitors’ goalkeeper Felix Kalowa.

Meanwhile, Sichikolo did not hide his frustration after the second goal with Warriors betraying performance when he turned his back from proceedings to kick the poor inanimate and innocent garden chair in the technical area.

The former City coach and Zambia international has now won just two games including a draw and a loss in the month of May.

Elsewhere, leaders Zesco United remain unbeaten after a 2-0 away win in their Ndola derby at Dola Hill against Forest Rangers.

Jackson Mwanza and John Chingangu were, unbelievebly, on target in quick succession in the 19th and 21th minutes respectively.

Zesco enjoy a five point lead on 24 points as the season draws towards the halfway mark in the next three matches.


  1. Congratulations ba Nkana. I would like to see you play great games throughout the year, except twice. When you come across the street, and when we come across the street. Otherwise, it’s nice to see Nkana coming back to the winning ways. And yeah, I am a Power supporter!!!

  2. Congratulations to Nkana FC.Keep on winning, we shall always rally behind you……………

  3. Well done Nkana. Lusaka Times would do well to open a Nkana FC cardre column/page instead of hiding in reporting sport.
