Exciting winger Kelvin Mubanga scored a solitary goal and later received a red card as Nkana silenced Nchanga Rangers 1-0 in Chingola on Saturday to maintain their four point lead at the top of the FAZ Super Division.

The win was Nkana’s first league win over Nchanga in 13 years.

This was in a tightly contested Week Nine match in which Kapiri-Mposhi FIFA referee Jani Sikazwe further senf off Rangers defender McDuff Chungu besides producing more than ten yellow cards.

Mubanga scored the deciding goal in the 69th minute beating keeper Rabson Mucheleng’anga with a low shot which resulted from a counter attack.

  1. Well, it looks like the revolution at Nkana is for real, Baba Ka, welcome back to the land of happiness. Ok, looks like their fans can believe again I think the frequency of breaking 13 years records have increased.

    By the way have the mines started pumping center again into the air where this club trains. I think it was the center that made Nkana of the yesteryears great

  2. It was just a matter of time. We were rebuilding all these years and now we are back. Devil Devil Kalampa for LIFE!

  3. Viva kalampa! This reminds me of those old days when kalampa was kalampa! The days of Jents kapambwe mulenga, Beston Chambeshi, abena Muselepete……..oh my goodness! Keep it up bane Iam sending you a mini bus if you win the league! Come on guys we did it 11 times!

  4. It was not centre nkana of yesteryears were great and this team they are being inspired by the past record of nkana. We are behind u bys make us pRoud once again and we should rebel thta bus 13 Tims champion good luck

  5. Ba LT Nchanga is not stuck on 22 points as indicated in your story but are stuck on 18 points… go kalampa go

    • Ba Kays, Nchanga are not stuck on 18points either. They should be on 14 if I’m not mistaken. Anyways, who cares about ba mwana manjanja?

  6. Kalampaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!
    Nalelo bwa nnama. The league is going back to its rightful HOME.
    NKANA the original Chipolopolo

  7. Congrats to Nkana, however am concerned about poor match officiating in Zambian league, lets wake up and play good football. I was disappointed with Jani Sikazwe flashing of cards unnecessarily. He ended up destroying the Game. The red card for Nchanga rangers defender was unjustifiable. Sikazwe the next time you come to Nchanga be warned of stern reaction by the fans, if you continue being biased then chose other destinations.

    • Don’t cry about refs ! Decisions affected both sides Rangers just failed to convert their chances ! And I think something should be done about the incident in which a Rangers supporter attacked Nkana supporters with a hammer , badly injuring two of them ! Like banning them from playing their games at Nchanga !

  8. That is what happens to a team when players start believing in themselves that they can do it. The resurgence at Nkana is good for the game of football.
