Sports Old guards Roan, Ndola Utd , Modern Stars & Nchanga limping in...

Several former FAZ Super Division teams have continued to struggle in Division One Zone 2 with seven matches left to play in the season.

Roan United, Nchanga Rangers, Chambishi, Ndola United and Kalulushi Modern Stars are all limping in the 23-game old season.

Once Stylish Roan are placed ninth on the Zone 2 table with 27 points from 23 matches played.

Roan, who were demoted from the Super Division in 2014, are 28 points behind Zone 2 leaders Kansanshi Dynamos.

Kalulushi and Ndola are in the bottom five of the table with 22 and 20 points respectively after playing 23 matches each.

Nchanga’s chances of making a quick return to the top league appear shattered as they are 19 points behind leaders Kansanshi.

Among old-guards in this Zone only Konkola Blades and Indeni have outside chances of making it to the promotion playoffs.

Indeni are third on the table with 45 points, three above fourth placed Konkola Blades, after 23 matches played.

Gomes are second in Zone 2 with 48 points, seven behind leaders Kansanshi.

We poor because we have chosen to be poor. Some have even erected platforms on their rooftops where they watch matches. And typical of Zambians we are quick to criticize those who sacrifice their time to run soccer when the team is not doing well. The other thing is that if the team is in good financial situation, everyone will want to be…

    • True. Zambians want free things all the time That attitude kills talent in sports art and music making. That’s why we can’t shine in these fields
