10-man Nkana draw at Eagles

Sports 10-man Nkana draw at Eagles

Ten-man Nkana finished scoreless away to Green Eagles on Saturday.

The beleaguered 12-time champions were reduced to ten men after goalkeeper Scott Ngokane was red carded in the second half.

Ngokande was sent off in the 68th minute after allegedly insulting referee Stanley Hachiwa when he ignored an suspected offside call by Eagles.

However, Ngokane’s dismissal was compounded by the fact that Nkana coach Beston Chambeshi had exhausted all his substitutes forcing him to field winger Shadreck Musonda as goalkeeper.

Nkana drop from 9th to 10th after the draw.

Elsewhere, Zanaco stayed in command of the table after a 4-0 home win over Napsa Stars at Sunset Stadium in Lusaka.

Ziyo Tembo, Mathews Macha, Henry Banda and Salulani Phiri were on target in the 19th, 32nd, 40 and 52nd minutes respectively.

The result has left Napsa coach Hector Chilombo in the line of fire after losing three successive games, failing to score in each of them and conceding nine goals.

And at Levy Mwanawasa stadium in Ndola, Zesco United are second after a hard-fought-for 3-2 home win over Red Arrows.

Jackson Mwanza scored the opener in the 1st minute before Winston Kalengo made it 2-0 in the 19th minute.

Francis Kombe scored his fourth goal of the season in the 31st minute to put Arrows back in the hunt and Festus Mbewe equalised in the 52nd minute.

However, Humphrey Maseneko rescued Zesco with the winning goal in the 85th minute.

Zesco are now three points behind Zanaco on 11 and 14 points respectively.
