WEEKEND SCORECARD: Numba Quietly Makes Early Impact At Kabwe Warriors


Mumamba Numba has quietly made a good impression in his first three games in charge of Kabwe Warriors.

Numba was appointed Warriors coach in mid-December three months after he was sacked by Zesco United after three seasons in charge of the nine-time champions.

He was fired after two successive failures to qualify Zesco to continental group stage competition.

Numba’s return to the bench has seen him start his tenure with a three-match unbeaten start in his six-month deal with Warriors.

Last Saturday, Warriors beat Prison Leopards 2-1 at home in the Kabwe derby to hand Numba his second win in charge.

This is after kicking off his reign on January 8 with a 1-0 victory over Nkana at the same venue and has now collected 7 out of a possible 9 points.

The results see Warriors move second from last and out of the bottom four relegation zone and now sit on the trapdoor at number 14th on 23 points, three points behind his former charges Zesco who are 10th.

Next up for Numba is a big test against the defending champions Red Arrows whom they visit this Saturday at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.

But Arrows have picked up one point after losing five straight games and trace their last league win to November 19 when they beat Nkwazi 2-1 at Nkoloma.

Meanwhile, the standard has already been set for Numba against Arrows by his predecessor George Lwandamina whom he replaced at Zesco and who has now replaced him at the same club.

Warriors beat Arrows 1-0 under Lwandamina in Kabwe in the first leg played on September 1.
