Nkana are through to the pre-group stage of the 2018/2019 CAF Champions League after eliminating UD Songo of Mozambique 3-1 on aggregate.
Kalampa on Wednesday edged Songo 1-0 at home in Kitwe in the return leg of the preliminary round match played at Nkana Stadium.
Midfielder Kelvin Mubanga converted a 43rd minute penalty after South African referee Thando Ndzandzeka pointed to the spot when Walter Bwalya appeared to have been fouled in the visitors box.
The decision didn’t go down well with Songo whose players and coaches protested for close to five minutes.
Ronald Kampamba missed a chance to put Nkana in the lead after 13 minutes when he fluffed in the box after being set up by Harrison Chisala.
There was another miss by Walter Bwalya whose header was saved by keeper Charles Swini in the 39th minute just after Songo’s Manuel Kambala had shot wide.
It was a match in which Nkana dominated possession but failed to create the needed clear chances on the day.
Nkana will now face Simba of Tanzania in the first round of the competition in two weeks time.
