Striker Ronald Kampamba says Nkana will qualify to the second round of the 2014 CAF Champions League despite allowing their Ugandan opponents Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA) to force a 2-2 draw in Kitwe on Saturday.
Nkana have an uphill battle after the weekends draw against 10-man KCCA in the first leg match of the first round at Arthur Davies Stadium.
Kampamba said the FAZ Super League champions are putting the draw behind to focus on the return leg.
“We thank God for this result it was not just our day. The game was fine and Kampala is a good team,” he said.
Kampamba scored for Nkana but he had his penalty saved prior to scoring for Nkana.
“We are looking forward to the return match, we are confident as players,” he said.
Kampamba added:”We have to fight, work hard and score goals.”
The two teams clash in the return match in Uganda this Saturday.
