Nkana produced a stunning performance at home to beat Mighty Mufulira Wanderers 3-0 in a riveting Copperbelt derby at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe graced by President Edger Lungu.
A stunning hat trick from Fred Tshimenga handed Nkana their first league win after a three-match winless run in which they picked up two defeats including a 0-0 away draw at Nakambala Leopards last Wednesday.
Tshimenga put Nkana ahead in the 15th minute when his shot came off the post before beating Noah Mwanza.
The striker headed-in his second in the 49th minutes before coolly tapping-in from close-range his third in the 61st minute.
Nkana’s victory was sweet revenge over Mighty after losing 2-0 in the first leg at Shinde on June 20.
Nkana are 8th on 38 points, seven behind 5th placed Mighty with one match left to play in the 2015 season.
