Nkana Denied Fourth Straight Win By Prison


Nkana wasted a great opportunity to record their fourth straight win for the first time this season after visiting Prison Leopards crawled from one down to finish 1-1.

Nkana are currently unbeaten in now six successive league games.

It was hard to separate the two sides throughout this game that saw Nkana take an 18th minute lead through David Kalaba who scored his sixth since arriving in Zambia in January.

Prison did equalise in the 47th minute through Francis Debrah but his legitimate goal was ruled out for offside in a first half that ended one-nil.

Nkana were unlucky to extend their lead in the 48th minute when Kabala saw his sweet strike come off the right angle.

Their misfortunes continued in the 77th minute when Derrick Mukombozi turned the ball into his net.

It was the best Prison could gain after playing all the football but endured with a toothless attack.

Nkana are 9th on 34 points, Prison are 6th on
37 points with eight games left to play.

Defending champions Red Arrows are 5th on 39 points after giving away the lead twice to finish 2-2 away in Chingola against Nchanga Rangers.

Yusuf Phiri put Arrows ahead in the 12th minute but Angel Lubamba equalised in the 50th minute.

Then the 2021/2022 season golden boot winner Ricky Banda finally scored his first of this campaign in the 69th minute.

However, Lubamba completed his brace in stoppage time to see the two sides share the spoils.

Meanwhile, Kansanshi Dynamos versus Zesco game will continue on Sunday morning at 10h00 after it was rained-out at halftime.

Baba Basile scored for Kansanshi in the 20th minute.
