Nkana have confirmed that their two Congolese players Fred Tshimenga and Diego Apanane are available for Saturday’s Copperbelt derby grudge showdown away to Zesco United.

Zambian immigration officials on Wednesday raided Nkana Stadium to ascertain the validity of of Nkana’s two mid-season arrivals striker Tshimanga and midfielder Apanane’s work permits who joined from Forest Rangers in July.

On Thursday, both Nkana and immigration officials were locked in protracted consultations over the eligibility of the DR Congo-born duo.

“We have sorted out the issue and the two players are available for selection,” Nkana club secretary Ken Mwansa said on Friday morning.

“This will not in any way affect us and our supporters should not worry about anything.We are determined to beat Zesco,” Mwansa said.

Tshimenga and Apanene have been in impressive form since joining from Forest.

Tshimenga has so far scored two goals in four matches while Apanane scored his debut goal in last Saturdays 3-1 home win over National Assembly.

The 12-time champions seek to end an agonising 15-league-match winless run against Zesco.

Zesco edge Nkana with nine wins and six draws dating back to 2004.
