Sports Nkana honour fans with triumph over Zesco

Nkana have dedicated Sunday’s 3-2 victory over Zesco United in a FAZ Super Division match played at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium to supporters.

This was Nkana’s first victory over Zesco since 2004 when the Ndola club won promotion to the Super Division.

Nkana assistant coach Zeddy Saileti said supporters had endured several years to see their side overcome Zesco.

“I dedicate this win to our fans. They have been waiting for this result for a long time. I am happy for our supporters let them celebrate,” Saileti said.

Saileti saluted his players’ mental strength and character in this Week 32 match.

“The boys played well and did what we were doing in training. My boys were tactically disciplined. The boys believed in themselves,” he said.

“We worked on the mental strength. You know people have been saying you can’t beat Zesco but in football nothing is permanent,” Saileti said.

The win helped Nkana to cut Zanaco’s lead at the top of the table to two points.

Second placed Nkana have 66 points from 32 matches played.
