Coach Aggrey Chiyangi has admitted that Nkana struggled to beat Forest Rangers in Saturday’s FAZ Super Division match in Wusakile.

Chiyangi’s Nkana needed a 79th minute lone goal from striker Walter Bwalya to beat a determined Forest side in this Week 23 match played
at Nkana Stadium.

“I think we did not play well. I think there was a bit of underrating Forest. We didn’t play so aggressively but I think it is good we fought and came back with a goal and it has helped us get three points,” Chiyangi said.

He, however, said the hard-fought win would inspire Nkana ahead of their next match against Zanaco to be played in Lusaka.

“A win is important because it motivates the players to play next game and we will be going into a bigger game which is playing Zanaco,” he

Forest coach Simonda Kaunda lamented his team’s failure to prevent Nkana from scoring.

This was Forest’s eighth consecutive loss.

“Where we went wrong is when we left the left back Joseph Musonda to have space to cross that ball and in central defender where we let
Walter Bwalya to get a free header,” Kaunda said.
