Nkana Fight Back to Draw With Zanaco

Sports Feature Sports Nkana Fight Back to Draw With Zanaco

Nkana rallied to recovered slightly on Sunday with a 1-1 home draw against Zanaco at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe.

The draw came five days after the defending league champions suffered a humiliating 5-0 away loss to Green Buffaloes in Lusaka in a match marred by a supporter assaulting Nkana coach Manfred Chabinga during the game.

Chabinga missed the Zanaco game due to suspension over his conduct during that incident while striker Idris Mbombo was absent due to injury.

Meanwhile, Zanaco were the better side in the first half and sent Nkana reeling with a 2nd minute goal scored by Moses Phiri.

Nkana’s only notable chance of a goal came in the 37th minute when Fred Tshimenga’s header was parried by Zanaco goalkeeper Racha Kola.

But Tshimenga redeemed himself in the 58th minute with the equaliser in the second half Nkana showed shades of character.

The champions were then harshly denied the winner in the 67th minute when Diamond Chikwekwe’s goal was disallowed for a questionable offside.

Meanwhile, the highlight of the game saw midfielder Misheck Chaila make his Nkana debut following his free transfer from Zesco United.

Chaila showed promising signs of depth and experience Nkana badly needs after a raft of off-season departures that have left them struggling in the early league campaign with two draws, as many defeats and one win.
