Coach Beston Chambeshi has declared Nkana ready for Wednesday’s return match of the CAF Champions League preliminary round against UD Songo of Mozambique set for Nkana Stadium in Kitwe.
Nkana have a 2-1 advantage from the first leg match played in Beira, Mozambique on November 28.
“We are ready for the match. So far so good in our preparations and the team is injury free,” Chambeshi said.
“We have a 2-1 advantage but this is football you can’t say they (Songo) are out,” Chambeshi emphasised.
Nkana skipper Walter Bwalya is upbeat ahead of the return match against Songo in Wusakile.
“We played the first half in Mozambique and now are ready for the return match. The morale in camp is high,” Bwalya said.
Meanwhile, Kalampa will play minus suspended defensive midfielder Duncan Otieno who was shown a red card after receiving two yellow cards in the first leg.
Overall winners between Nkana and Songo will face Simba of Tanzania who beat Mbabane Swallows 4-0 on Tuesday away in eSwatini to advance to the pre-group stage 8-1 on aggregate.
