Numba: Mighty gave us problems

Sports Numba: Mighty gave us problems

Zanaco coach Mumamba Numba says it is a relief to have beaten stubborn Mighty Mufulira Wanderers on Wednesday.

Mighty literally gave Zanaco a good run for their money despite losing 3-2 away at Sunset Stadium in Lusaka.

“I think it is a relief collecting maximum points against Mighty,” Numba said.

“So far of all the teams that we have played this season, Mighty has stretched us to the limit.”

Mighty and Zanaco were were locked at 2-2 on the hour-mark before Mathews Macha stole the three points for the hosts in the 88th minute.

Zanaco took the lead in the 43rd minute through Augustine Mulenga and extended their lead two minutes later courtesy of an own-goal from Wanderers defender Warren Kunda.

Moses Lolozi put Wanderers back into the contest with a 52nd minute penalty before Taonga Bwembya equalised in the 60th minute.

And Mighty coach Manfred Chabinga said it was unfortunate for his team to lose after dominating Zanaco but that his sides’ performance is a warning shot to their opponents.

“The boys played well,” Chabinga said.

“It was a fantastic performance I am so impressed despite the loss.

“We conceded two silly goals in the first half because of defensive blunders.”
