Nkana held by Red Arrows



Nkana Football Club's recent poor form continued in the MTN Super League as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Red Arrows on Sunday.

Both teams started with purpose but it was the visitors, Red Arrows, who were more enterprising as they dominated proceedings in the midfield.

Nkana failed to play the short passing game they are known for and resorted to a more direct game and remained compact in their own half in the first. Overlapping left back, Mathews Kalunga was Nkana's best player going forward.

Moments after the restart, Reynold Kampamba capitalised on a defensive lapse after Malani Gondwe's throw-in found him unmarked at the far post and scored in the 48th minute.

Red Arrows responded by making a double substitution in the 55th minute and introduced pacey forwards in Stanley Nshimbi and Jimmy Njobvu.

It was substitute Njobvu who equalised for the visitors after he was put through after some good work by Lubinda Mundia who beat his marker before releasing a pass in Njobvu's path in the 72nd minute.

The result means that all the five teams at the top of the log failed to win in week 8 and Arrows also failed to leap-frog Power Dynamos, who lost to Nakambala Leopards on Saturday, into second place.

Zesco United still lead the table with 18 points followed by Dynamos with 16 and Arrows with 15. Nkana moved into 10th position with 10 points.
