Zesco,Nkana battle in Barclays showdown


Zesco United and Nkana on Saturday renew their rivalry as they clash in one of the four Barclays Cup quarterfinals matches being played at Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe.

This match starts at 15h15 just after the lunch time match between Zanaco and Young Buffaloes at the same venue.

Zesco are hunting for their sixth Barclays Cup trophy while Nkana are yet to win this competition.

“We are playing Zeco, it is a final before the final. We respect Zesco and they must respect us,” Nkana coach Beston Chambeshi said.

Zesco coach George Lwandamina is predicting an exciting encounter.

“It will be a good game worth watching. I hope and trust the best team will win,” Lwandamina said.

Meanwhile, Zanaco tackle Division One side Young Buffaloes in the 13h00 kick off quarterfinal match.

“We won’t fear Zanaco. We have the goal machine to score and win,” Buffaloes coach Josephat Mulenga said.

Zanaco coach Mumamba Numba is cautious ahead of this match.

“We will not underrate Young Buffaloes. We want to avoid an upset,” Numba said.
