Coach Beston Chambeshi has hailed Nkana’s 1-0 win over Power Dynamos in the Kitwe derby played on Sunday at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe.
Congolese striker Djunese Kanda scored a late goal that seperated the two teams in this delayed Week Seven match of the 2015 FAZ Super Division.
In a post-match interview, Chmbeshi described the victory as fanstastic.
“It is fantastic, winning a local derby is not easy and I am happy with the result,” Chambeshi said.
I am happy with the way the boys played and I hope we can continue playing like this,” he said.
Chambeshi believes the win against Power could be a turning point for Nkana who endured a bad start to the season.
The Wusakile club had picked six points from six games prior to the derby.
“I think maybe it is a turning point and I hope we can continue picking points.”
Power coach Tenant Chilumba was disappointed with the loss.
Chilumba is yet to beat Nkana as Power trainer.
“Ofcourse, I am disappointed.We wanted a better result but it is a game of football: you win, draw or lose,” Chilumba said.
He added:” We played well in the first half but in the second half Nkana were tactical and defended in numbers.”
