Nkana target another milestone victory over Zesco United this Sunday when they meet in the final of the 2017 Charity Shield at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
The Samuel ‘Zoom’ Ndhlovu Memorial final comes just four months after Nkana beat Zesco 3-2 that ended their 17-match winless run against the Ndola side in the league.
But Nkana have yet to beat Zesco in the Charity Shield after losing 5-4 on penalties in the 2015 semifinals and 3-0 in the 2011 finals.
Nkana come into the final full of confidence just four days after they beat Zanaco 3-0 in the Charity Shield semifinals.
2016 FAZ Super Division runners-up Zesco are set to be the second top two side Nkana will meet in this year’s tournament.
“We have a 90 percent chance of winning it, it is the final, anything can happen, any team can win it,” Nkana coach Zeddy Saileti said.
Saileti will also be hoping lightning can strike twice against Zesco after Walter Bwalya helped guide Nkana to this years final in that convincing semifinal win over Zanaco.
Zesco will also be wary of the danger the 2016 golden boot winner Bwalya possess who scored a brace in the two sides last meeting in November.
However, Zesco striker Jesse Were will be looking to disappoint Nkana and add to his two goals so far in the Charity Shield after scoring a brace against Power Dynamos last Thursday.
