Nkana close gap after Zesco frustrated at Nkwazi


Zesco United’s lead has been cut from eight to six points after they were held away by their nemesis Nkwazi on Wednesday.

The leaders and defending champions failed to breach 11th placed Nkwazi to finish 0-0 away at Edwin Embolea Stadium in Lusaka and are still without league win against the Policemen on the road since 2010.

Zesco have 74 points with four games left to play but are looking in their rear view mirror where Nkana are now a strong second following a 2-0 away win over second from bottom Nchanga Rangers in Chingola.

Shadreck Malambo and Walter Bwalya scored in the 2nd and 65th minutes to see Nkana rise to 68 points.

Green Buffaloes tumbled from third to fourth after they lost 1-0 at home to Kabwe Warriors, exchanging places with Green Eagles on goal difference on 65 points who drew 1-1 at home in Choma with National Assembly.


  1. Congratulations Nkana for the Job well done, As for GBFC its no surprise at all. The team for Buffaloes is okay starting from defense up to midfield. Their un doing is lack of scoring prowess. They have no inspirational striker or two who can lead the rest of the team to score goals. If you look at their wins its 1-0, 2-1, 1-1 etc. Let them find match makers like the way Christopher Katongo was. Its not too late however you still have the potential to do better. Four games to go can make a difference. My prayer is that you do not lose out on continental football.

  2. Comment:zesco let us not be disappointed With the four games remaining, we need to take the league again.go boys go and defend the league once more
