Lime neutralise Nchanga Rangers


10-man Nchanga Rangers capitulated in the last five minutes of the second half to crash 3-1 away at the Trade Fair Grounds in Ndola and hand bottom placed Lime Hotspurs their first win of the season.

Second placed Nchanga were all over Lime for most of 85 minutes and took a deserved lead in the 70th minute through winger Alex Ngonga who headed in a corner.

However 10 minutes later, Ngonga was sent off for a punching an opponent inside the box as they lined up for a Nchanga corner.

Nchanga were denied second goal in the 84th minute when Kasonde Bwalya headed in the ball but it ruled out for offside by Wellington Kaoma.

A minute later, Mwelwa Mendela headed in equaliser to beat goalkeeper Rabson Muchelenganga.

Lameck Kafwaya put Lime ahead in the 87th minute with a fine volley past Muchelenganga.

Dead on 90 minutes, Brian Mwila thumps in left footed shot from close range to send Nchanga to their second league defeat of the season.


    • Ya I think they are playing good football ! However ,there are other teams also playing good football ! But true , they will be one of the top teams !

    • Additionally Nchanga should not lose games after dominating for 85 minutes ! Take Man U for example ; they won this seasons’ league by walloping ALL the small teams ! Others dropped points against the small teams !
