Nkana coach Aggrey Chiyangi had demanded they have to maintain their current unbeaten run and return to the top eight of the FAZ Super Division.
Nkana on Saturday beat struggling national Assembly 3-1 at home in Kitwe steadily swim away from the fringes of the bottom four relegation zone.
The was Nkana’s second on the trot and also saw them extend their unbeaten run to five successive matches in which they have picked three draws.
Chiyangi said the next game away against defending champions and current league leaders Zesco United will test their current good form.
“What is important is to win the next game because that will help push us from the zone were we are because I think Nkana is a big club and doesn’t belong where it is right now,” Chiyangi said.
Nkana moved from 11th and are now knocking to the top 8 door.
The 12-time champions are at number 9 on 25 points from 19 matches with eleven games left to play and are fifteen points behind leaders Zesco.
