Chambeshi battling to swallow Nkana’s bitter home defeat

Sports Chambeshi battling to swallow Nkana's bitter home defeat

Nkana coach Beston Chambeshi says they must recover very quickly from Wednesday’s bitter home defeat to reignite their 2019 top-two title chase.

Nkana were humbled 4-1 at home on Wednesday afternoon in Wusakile by Pool B leaders Green Eagles.

It was a big blow for Nkana who have just began clearing their five-match back-log with a defeat and now trail fifteen points behind Eagles after nine and thirteen games played respectively.

But the rest of the pack now has five games left to play.

Moreover, the game came five days after a morale-boosting 2-0 away Kitwe derby victory over their ailing archrivals Power Dynamos just across the road at Arthur Davies Stadium.

“It is a defeat that is hard to swallow, we prepared well against Eagles but this is football but we need to work hard to handle the next game, the game at the weekend is very important for us to come out from this defeat,” Chambeshi said.

The loss was not only Nkana’s third of the season but also their second successive league defeat at home after they were beaten 2-1 by Lumwana on March 30 in Kitwe.

Nkana return to action this Saturday when they hosts bottom placed FC MUZA.

The promoted side held Nkana 1-1 in the first leg in Mazabuka on March 21.
