Green Eagles plot to knockout Nkana

Sports Green Eagles plot to knockout Nkana

Green Eagles coach Aggrey Chiyangi says they have a plan in place for hosts Nkana in Wednesday’s top-three showdown at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe.

Third placed Eagles visit number two side Nkana in a last-minute dash for the runners-ups spot with three games left before the 2018 FAZ Super Division season comes to a close.

Eagles are one point behind Nkana on 68 points but area further nine adrift of Zesco United who will retain the league title with a game to spare should they beat relegation threatened Nchanga Rangers on the same date at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

Nkana and Eagles go into the match also unbeaten in their last 16 and 17 successive matches respectively.

But the pressure is on Nkana who lost 2-1 away to Eagles in the first leg on June 17.

“It is going to be very tough knowing that Nkana are playing home,” Chiyangi said.

“Obviously they are hoping to use every arsenal to get a positive result but we are also fighting because we want to see the best position we can finish on the log.

“And looking at the way things are, second position is the best position that we can get.

“We are also making a plan so that if they slumber we can get the result that we want.”

Victory for Eagles will see them enter the top two bracket in the battle for the second CAF Champions League ticket.

Third and fourth finishers will play in the CAF Confederation Cup.

Eagles have never finished in the top four in their ten years of campaigning in the FAZ Super Division as they also chase their debut continental appearance.

Eagles best finish was a seventh spot placing in 2014.

Meanwhile, the match will also see the current joint league top scorers on 18 goals go head-to-head with Idris Mbombo for Nkana and Eagles’ Tapson Kaseba.
