Zanaco check inconsistent Nkana

Sports Zanaco check inconsistent Nkana

Zanaco dispatched Nkana to their third defeat in their last four matches today with a home victory at Sunset Stadium in Lusaka.

The Bankers beat second placed Nkana 2-0 in a rescheduled Week 7 match to open up a nine point lead at the summit of the FAZ Super Division table.

Aubrey Funga put Zanaco ahead in the 44th minute before Fashion Sakala made it 2-0 in the 65th minute.

The loss was Nkana’s third over the last three weeks that they had just punctuated with a 4-1 home win over on-fired Forest Rangers last Saturday in Kitwe.

Nkana had prior to that loss against Forest gone down 1-0 away to Red Arrows on June 18 in Lusaka and 2-1 at home against nemesis Zesco United on June 12 in Kitwe.

Meanwhile, Zanaco have 40 points, taking the symbolic mid-season championship title at the end of seventeen games during the two-week league break.

Nkana stay put at number two on 31 points, three points ahead of Zesco who host Arrows on Wednesday and could surpass the Kitwe giants should they win that game including next Saturday’s home date against Green Buffaloes in Ndola.


  1. @Kwamutonyo, the game was played from Heroes not Sunset. Politics aside, this is soccer, your statement shows that you follow issues blindly
