Nkana made their first return to league action on Wednesday in over a month today with a come-from-behind 3-2 home win over new boys Circuit City.

Mwila Phiri missed an 11th minute penalty for Zesco while teammate John Chingandu hit the post in the 53rd minute before overcoming a stubborn Kitwe United whom they runnto exhaustion in the last 30 minutes of the game.

Zesco are fifth on 9 points from six games with three matches in hand and eleven points behind leaders Zanaco who beat bottom placed Prison Leopards 2-1.

Kitwe United stay second from bottom in Pool A on 7 points after nine matches played.

Elswhere in Pool A, Zanaco opened a three point lead thanks to goals by Ernest Mbewe in the 13th minute before striker Chitiya Mususu in the 19th minutes to score his fourth league goal of the season.

Prisons striker Tshite Mweshi scored his sides’ consolation goal in the 25th minute as the promoted side sustained their first home loss of the season where they had been unbeaten in their opening four games.

  1. The problem with the Nkana coach is, he doesn’t know how to read the game, can’t use his player effectively, I feel they have better players than that useless Shadreck Malambo he likes using, what a fluke of a coach.

  2. ZEGA need to have Percy/Tricky wingers to compliment the maturity of Lazy and Were. for now I doubt if they they will win anything this year

  3. WHY ALWAYS BLAME THE COACHES.dO YOU WANT THE COACH TO BE TELLING WHEN TO SHOOT ,PASS OR DEFEND.tHE SAME COACH WAS SHOWERED WITH PRAISES WHEN HE WON UNDER20 COSAFA,AFRICA CUP AND THEIR OUTSTANDING PERFORMANCE AT THE WORLD CUP.PLEASE GIVE COACHES A BREAK!! WHEN YOU FLUKE DON’T PROJECT YOUR FLUKENESS ON OTHERS WHO ARE NOT!MUTASHA KALIKWISAYA!!
