Nkana are still contenders-Chiyangi

Sports Nkana are still contenders-Chiyangi

Nkana coach Aggrey Chiyangi is insisting that his inconsistent side can still win this year’s FAZ Super Division title despite losing key games to their main rivals in the first round.

Nkana have lost to champions Zesco United, league leaders Zanaco and Green Buffaloes in the first round.

Leaders Zanaco dispatched Nkana to their third defeat in their last four matches on Saturday with a home victory at Heroes Stadium in Lusaka to open a nine point lead.

“In games like this what matters is taking your chances. It’s been a tough game,” Chiyangi said in a post-match interview.

“The same way Zanaco have overtaken us that’s the same way we can over take them. We still have so many games to play in the second round,” he said.

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.

“The first round has been fine though we lost some games. We need to pick up and work hard in the second round.”
