Nkana coach Beston Chambeshi is pleased with the 2-1 win over Simba Sports of Tanzania in the CAF Champions League pre-group stage match played on Saturday in Kitwe
Forwards Ronald Kampamba and Kelvin Mubanga scored for Kalampa with John Bocco scoring for Simba through a second half penalty at Nkana Stadium.
Chambeshi told journalists at Nkana Stadium that his team played well and will plan adequately for the return match in Tanzania.
“I am happy with the result. Conceding a goal is nature of the game, all we need is to plan well and see how we are going to play in the second leg in Tanzania,” he said.
The two teams meets in the return match next Sunday in Dar-es-Salaam.
“It will be an open game, they will not go and defend like they did here. They will open up the game which will be an advantage for us,” Chambeshi said.
Simba coach Patrick Aussems admitted Nkana gave his side a tough match.
“I am just disappointed about the first half because the first forty five minutes we played like a Tanzanian league match. We didn’t play a Champions League game. When you play against a team of this level if you miss aggressiveness you are punished and that is what happened,” he said.
A draw for Nkana in Tanzania will be enough for them to advance to the group stage.
But a 1-0 loss for Nkana will make Simba advance on away goals rule.
