Buildcon earned their first point of the 2018 FAZ Super Division campaign as new coach Tenant Chembo started his reign with a 1-1 draw away at Nkana on Wednesday.

The Ndola side had lost the opening three matches before Chembo was unveiled 24 hours prior to this rescheduled Week 2 match played at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe.

Star striker Given Singuluma came off the bench to put Buildcon in front in the 62nd minute.

Singuluma replaced John Makwatta few minutes after the half time break.

Nkana skipper Walter Bwalya cancelled Singuluma’s goal with a close range shot after beating keeper Aziz Keita in the 68 minute.

Thereafter, Nkana made several attempts in a bid to find the winning goal that never came.

This was Nkana’s first point from the possible nine as they increaed their tally to 7 from five matches played.

Red Arrows 1-Kitwe United 2
Nchanga Rangers 0-Zanaco 1
Lusaka Dynamos 0-Zesco United 1
Nkana 1-Buildcon 1

  1. Nostradamus and Miguna Miguna,

    To me the most remarkable record to date is that of poorly funded Kitwe City Council sponsored Kitwe United who just got promoted, but who, out of five games played so far, have won three, drawn one, and lost only one and have earned 10 points, just three below the league leaders, Power Dynamos! Just compare this record with heavily funded and star-studded Buildcon, with its legions of foreign players, managing only a point after four games! In my opinion, the coach who deserves accolades is Stephen Mwansa and his Ghanaian assistant, Ernest Koffi.


  2. Indeed Kitwe United has really performed remarkably well so far in the ZPL and kudos to the coaching bench led by Stephen Mwansa.As for Buildcon,one can only hope that coach Tenant Chembo will stabilise the team in bringing in the much needed team balance,cohesion and speed which seem to be lacking.I also hope Buildcon management has learnt a lesson in those wholesale changes they made to their team which has cost them dearly so far.
