Nkana target Kabwe Youth in Barclays Cup quarters

Sports Nkana target Kabwe Youth in Barclays Cup quarters

Nkana enter the fray of the 2016 Barclays Cup on Saturday when they face Kabwe Youth Academy in a quarterfinal clash at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.

The 2014 losing finalists return to the competition for the first time since that season when they lost 3-0 to record four-time champions Zesco United.

Nkana face a Kabwe Youth side that is hunting for a giant-kill in this year competition.

Kabwe Youth advanced to the last eight after beating fellow Barclays Cup newsboys Zesco Victoria Falls FC 2-0 last Sunday in a preliminary round match at Sunset Stadium in Lusaka.

However, Kabwe Youth must be wary of a Nkana side loaded with firepower from the league’s top scorer Walter Bwalya.

Bwalya will be hoping to open his cup account to add to the 15 goals he has scored in the FAZ Super Division this season.

Meanwhile, in the days lunchtime kickoff, perennial Barclays Cup campaigners Zanaco face Kabwe Warriors in a Midlands derby.

Zanaco despite playing in each of the last nine editions of the Barclays Cup, have never won out.

Warriors on the other hand have never advanced beyond the quarterfinals as they head into their fourth outing in the tournament.
