EAGLES PENALISE NKANA – as Chambishi hold Napsa Stars


GREEN Eagles propelled to fifth on the MTN/FAZ Super League table after shocking Nkana FC 1-0 in a Week-30 fixture played at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe.

A second half goal from Amity Shamenda was all the Alex Namazaba-drilled Eagles needed to overcome the Kitwe giants in the second fixture of the double header at Nkana Stadium.

Shamenda scored from a sublime freekick as Green Eagles collected maximum points to move to 45 points on the log while Nkana dropped to 10th with 42 points.

Meanwhile, Napsa Stars missed a chance to reclaim second position on the MTN/FAZ Super League table after being held to a goalless draw by Chambishi FC in a closely contested fixture played at Nkana Stadium.

The Perry Mutapa-drilled pensioners dominated and created better chances in the first fixture of the double header.

However, the pensioners couldn’t break Chambishi goal keeper Rodwel Malungushi who put up a man of the match performance to rescue a point for the Kitwe outfit being led by new coach Danny Kabwe.

Malungushi produced some fine saves in both halves of the game to prevent defeat for the Kitwe outfit that is seeking to survive relegation.

“It is a good start. The guys picked up the instructions. It’s just the instructions really there is nothing that has changed apart from giving them specific instructions, being defensive when you lose the ball and being offensive when you are in position,” Kabwe who has been tasked to rescue Chambishi from being relegated said in his first match with the team. 

“It is a good start we are building on the confidence and morale. Look at where we are coming from. We are coming from so many losses then we pick a draw meaning we are starting to rise up,” he said.

For Mutapa, the goalless draw was a frustrating result because his boys tried their best to get the maximum three points.

“Frustrating result. The only consolation is that we haven’t lost because as the match went on anyone could have scored a goal and that would have been the end but we are frustrated because we didn’t put up a very good performance though the performance we gave was ok to win the game so yes we are frustrated because we created chances and we could have won the game,” Mutapa said.

Napsa Stars remain third on the log with 46 points, two points behind second-placed Green Buffaloes and 10 points behind the league leaders Power Dynamos.
