Nkana Rally to Rout Nchanga Rangers


Nkana boosted chances of surviving relegation when coming from behind to thump Nchanga Rangers 3-1 in Sunday’s FAZ Super Division match at home in Wusakile, Kitwe.

Prior to this Week 23 encounter at Nkana Stadium, Kalampa were just on place above the bottom four.

After leading for most part of the game, Nchanga conceded three goals in the last 27 minutes to lose their eighth game of the season.

Striker Miguel Pedro put Brave in front after 12 minutes when scoring against the run of play to shock the home side.

Nchanga’s lead lasted up to the 63rd minute when new Congolese signee David Kabala equalised from close range.

Substitute Lameck Kafwaya put Nkana in the driving seat with a fantastic 72nd minute goal before registering his brace four minutes away from full time.

Kafwaya had replaced injured captain Harrison Chisala earlier in the 40th minute.

Meanwhile, victory moves Kalampa two places up to number 12 with 28 points from 23 matches played.

Nchanga replaces Nkana at number 14 as they remained on 27 points in 23 matches.
