Nkana Fans Riot Following Forest Loss

Sports Nkana Fans Riot Following Forest Loss

Nkana’s easily -combustible fans exploded today in a last 10 minutes of drama at Dola Hill in Ndola in coach Linos Makwaza’s first emotional return to Forest Rangers since his appointment last week that was blighted by a 2-1 away defeat by the fallen Kitwe giants.

The game was halted with four minutes left of the match during a last nine minute period in which all three goals in the match were scored.

Nkana took the lead through striker Evans Kangwa in the 81st minute to raise Makwaza’s hopes of bragging rights against Forest who unceremoniously fired him after three winless games at the start of the season with one club official branding him “Mr. Defeat.”

Forest rallied three minutes later when former Zambia striker Owen Kaposa equalized before he won a penalty in the 86th minute that was later converted by Peter Banda before all hell broke loose and the game was halted for 10 minutes.

Police allegedly fired shots in the air to try and calm the temperature at Dola Hill before the game resumed with emotions still high until the final whistle but the commotion continued and the law later made over half a dozen arrests in the process.

The pressure will shift to Wusakile on Monday when Nkana host Green Buffaloes in a delayed Week 14 game in what is expected to be a tense situation after three successive defeats and two losses on the trot for Makwaza since taking over the helms a week ago.

Meanwhile, there was some civilized drama up in Chililabombwe at Konkola stadium where Konkola Blades dispatched Zesco United to their first league defeat of the season.

Patrick Kasunga put Blades ahead in the 25th minute but Nicholas Zulu leveled scores two minutes after the break.

Felix Sunzu Junior scored his third goal in as many goals with the winner in the 79th minute.

Zesco remain at the top of the table on 34 points but enjoy a narrow two-point lead over Nchanga Rangers who beat Roan United 2-0 away in Luanshya today thanks to goals from Chileshe Kabwe and Ignatius Mukota.

Power Dynamos remained a close third on 31 points following a 1-0 win over Kabwe Warriors at Arthur Davies stadium courtesy of a 30th minute goal from Luka Lungu.

  1. Early this week i said that if Nkana loose their next game its fans will through stones and they have done so. I personally dont like this team because of what its fans do.

  2. Nkana will soon realise (don’t be like real madrid) that firing a coach is not the answer. I just hope my team will not be relegated again

  3. Nkana fan always! Sorry friends Fi Mopani fyalitwipaya! Missing Ba Coach Moze, Ba Chibungo na ba Manager ati ba ….
