WEEKEND SCORECARD: Numba Expecting More from Kelvin Mubanga


Zesco United coach Mumamba Numba believes midfielder Kelvin Mubanga gave them just a glimpse of what to expect this season following his display in Saturday’s home victory over Kabwe Warriors.

Mubanga scored his debut goals for his new club on November 21 with a brace in a 2-0 win over Warriors at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

The 24-year-old made a shock move to Zesco in September after dumping the defending league champions Nkana for the club they succeded to clinch last seasons title.

“Kelvin Kampamba, expectional in this game. We just have to continue encouraging him because he is a tramp card in this team,” Numba said.

Mubanga struck a superb 65th minute long-range free-kick and outdid himself with a stunning volley from the edge of the area.

“Of course this is what we expect from him, he is one player who can score from any angle he has a very powerful technique,” Numba said.

“And I think with his technique and his intelligence, I believe  he can give us  enough goals this  season.”

Meanwhile,Zesco are sixth on 7 points, three behind leaders Green Eagles from five and four games played respectively.
