Nkana coach Zeddy Saileti has accused Kabwe referee Wisdom Chewe of spoiling Saturday’s Kitwe derby between his side and Power Dynamos.
A goal in each half from midfielder Emmanuel Chimpinde and winger Simon Bwalya propelled Power to a 2-0 win over Nkana at Arthur Davies Stadium.
The defeat seemed to be unbearable for Nkana fans who resorted to throwing missiles on the pitch in protest over some decisions made by Chewe.
In a post-match interview, Saileti said he was disappointed with the way the ref handled the fierce derby.
“We had an upper hand and you saw that our pressure almost paid off but when we got a penalty the ref clearly ignored it.The ref on several occasions failed to act but his assistants raised their flags and ended up changing their minds which was wrong.”
Power coach Beston Chambeshi said:”It was a difficult game, it was not easy. I am happy with the way Nkana played but you know a derby.”
Nkana lost 5-1 in the two team’s earlier meeting in May.
