Nkana’s battle for a top-two finish in the Super Division will come under scrutiny when they visit champions Zesco United at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola on Sunday.

Kalampa have never beaten Zesco , since the latter was promoted to the top flight league in 2004.

Zesco beat Nkana 1-0 in the first round match played in June in Wusakile.

Nkana have declared they are not feeling the pressure despite their winless record against Zesco.

Zesco are fourth, 17 points behind leaders Zanaco, with five games in hand.

“We have told the players not to be under pressure and not to think about the record between us and Zesco,” Nkana assistant coach Zeddy Saileti said.

“They should just treat it as any other normal game but, it’s important for us to get a positive result because we need to play continental football next year.”

Second placed Nkana are currently five points behind leaders Zanaco, on 63 and 68 points respectively with three games left to play.
