Nkana upbeat despite Charity Shield final defeat

Sports Nkana upbeat despite Charity Shield final defeat

Nkana coach Zeddy Saileti has described his sides 2017 Charity Shield final defeat as painful.

Nkana lost 2-0 to Zesco United in the final on Sunday at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola just four days after making a promising start in the season-opening tournament semifinals with a 3-0 thumping of FAZ Super Division champions Zanaco.

“It is painful we didn’t win the Charity Shield. You know playing in the final, you have to get a positive result but this is football,” Saileti said.

However, Saileti said playing two high-profile matches before they kickoff their 2017 FAZ Super Division campaign on April 8 when they host Nakambala Leopards was the biggest plus of playing in the Charity Shield.

“I think we will see where we went wrong so that we can polish up. I think it is good for the team to have played two good games at this level and I think we are now ready for the league,” Saileti said.
