Injuries have rocked Nkana ahead of Sunday’s crucial home Super Division match against champions Zanaco with striker Ronald Kampamba being among four casualties.
Sate Sate Kampamba, winger Simon Bwalya, full back Aaron Katebe and defender Given Sinyangwe are all out of the Zanaco encounter with assorted injuries.
“Sate Sate has an hamstring injury on the right leg and I think this will take approximately 10 days to heal,” Nkana team physician Dr Gibson Mambwe revealed.
Kampamba missed last Sunday’s 1-0 win at City of Lusaka in the capital city due to the same injury.
“Given has back pain. He strained his back in training recently. He also needs about 10 days,” Dr Mambwe said.
“Simon has an injury on the right ankle. This may take five to six days,” he said.
Bwalya has missed Nkana’s last two matches.
“Aaron has an injury on the left leg.This may take eight days. So all these guys are out of the next game,” Dr Mambwe added.
Nkana have just welcomed forward Freddy Tshimenga and midfielder Danny Silavwe from injuries.
The two were part of the Nkana team that conquered City of Lusaka.
