The Nkana revival continues on Saturday when the boys were separated from the boys following a 1-0 home win over ambitious and promoted FC MUZA.
Saturdays result sees Nkana collect back-to-back wins only for the second time this season and are also unbeaten in their last four matches after also posting two draws.
MUZA who are making their second top-flight appearance have punched above their weight this term screaming the big boys and sitting at number three heading into this weekend’s Week 24 games.
The visitors from Mazabuka played all the sweet football but Nkana remained pragmatic throughout.
Nkana striker David Kabala proved a handful for MUZA who escaped his three attempts on goal in a first half that ended scoreless.
But Kabala found the target in the 63rd minute when he headed in the ball from a Lyson Thole set-piece to see Nkana take a deserved lead.
The only second half threat from MUZA came from two free-kicks delivered by 66th minute substitute Bobo Angwenga who initially his 84th minute set-piece saved by Mangani Banda and three minutes later fired another one that was intercepted by Nkana’s wall.
Nkana crawled from 12th to 11th on 31 points, ten points behind second placed Forest Rangers and 15 points adrift of leaders Power Dynamos with ten games left to play,
MUZA slipped from 3rd to 4th on 37 points.
