Nkwazi deny Nkana last 2018 league home win


Nkana missed a chance to secure second place finish in the FAZ Super Division with a game to spare when they were held to a frustrating 2-2 home draw by Nkwazi on Saturday.

Kalampa gave away a 2-0 second half lead to draw with Nkwazi in this round 37 match played at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe.

After a goalless first half, Nkana took a 65th minute lead when striker Idriss Mbombo headed in Kelvin Mubanga’s cross.

The home side doubled the lead when Nkwazi’s Kelvin Owusu turned the ball into his own net after pressure from Harrison Chisala.

However, Nkwazi turned the game on its head a minute later with Davy Kalandanya reducing the deficit to 2-1 before late substitute Steward Chikandiwa pushed in the equaliser deep in added time.

The draw pushes second placed Nkana to 73 points, five above third placed Green Buffaloes, who faces already demoted New Monze Swallows on Sunday in Monze.

Nkana now needs to avoid losing to Lusaka Dynamos in their last fixture to clinch second place finish in case Buffaloes win their last two matches.


  1. I don’t like lunatics Nkana, but I like NDC. NDC has not caused violent compared to how they behave at Nkana matches.

  2. I also don’t like Monze Swallows but I like Nkana. “If HH were the coach of Zambia, Zambia could have won at least 10 FIFA World Cup matches,” Larry Mweetwa.
