In the midst of Nchanga Rangers taking over the top slot of the Faz Super Division, Nkana and Kabwe Warriors recorded mixed fortunes in their respective coaches third matches in charge on Monday afternoon in a rescheduled Week 14 games.
Linos Makwaza was a relieved man today after Nkana won under his helm after two successive defeats that including a continuous 2-1 loss away to Forest Rangers on Saturday that sparked a riot at Dola Hill in Ndola.
Today, Makwaza was the hero, ironically beating Green Buffaloes who are under his former Power Dynamos team mate at Arthur Davies Aggrey Chiyangi who both also served as assistant trainers under the late Ben Bamfuchile six years ago.
Nkana won the match thanks to goals scored by Victor Mwansa and Richard Mooka in the 24th and 71st minutes respectively.
Midfielder Nathan Sinkala scored in-between before the former Lusaka Celtic and Kitwe United midfielder scored the winner 19 minutes from time.
There was no such luck however for Manfred Chabinga at Warriors whose side suffered their third successive defeat.
Warriors went down 1-0 away to Roan United at Kafubu stadium in Luanshya with Ben Mwanza there securing the three points for the hosts in the 17th minute.
Meanwhile, Bruce Mwape’s Nchanga Rangers are basking at the top of the Super Division table after beating Lusaka Dynamos 1-0 at Nchanga Stadium in Chingola through a Kabwe Chileshe goal in the 70th minute.
Rangers are on 35 points from 19 games played and one point ahead of Zesco United who have a game in hand and who were not in action today thanks to six players who are at the Zambia national team ahead of its friendly international against Uganda away on August 11 in Kampala.
