Nkana's winless streak continues
Nkana's winless streak extended to ten consecutive games as they were held to a goalless draw by Indeni in a week 14 league match at Arthur Davies Stadium on Sunday.
The result means Nkana remain in 12th position with 14 points while Indeni remain rooted at the bottom of the table with 9 points.
Nkana thought they had broken the deadlock on 79 minutes but second assistant referee Ernest Simwanza had already raised his flag when Ian Kafusha's well connected
header from a Kabwe Mwila cross on the left edge of the area went in off the post.
The move leading up to the disallowed goal was started on the left side by-line by Reynold Kampamba when he passed the ball to Baldwin Daka. Daka then combined with Mwila Kabwe who crossed for Kafusha.
Television replays showed that Reynold Kampamba was in an offside position before Kafusha headed the ball but according to the assistant referee a foul was committed by Kafusha against an Indeni defender as they both jostled for the ball mid air.
Both sides started the match with caution but as the half wore on, Nkana's game plan became apparent. Their attacks were centred around wingers Ian Kafusha and Clement Kabali whose crosses meant for Joseph Milanzi and Reynold Kampamba were poor.
Indeni on the other hand were more compact and were content with playing the long ball which resulted in a lot of misplaced passes allowing Nkana to dominate possession by up to 60 percent before the break.
After the break, Indeni were more organised as they played the short passing game and they looked like they were capable of breaking down Nkana but the Wusakile was solid in defence.
Both sides had goal scoring chances in both halves but the finishing was mostly off target or the odd shots on target were weak and straight at the goalkeeper.
Nkana's best chance in the first half was when Kabali's cross was met in the heart of the area by Kampamba but his connect went straight at goalkeeper Stephen Kabwe who saved comfortably.
Indeni's chance on 71 minutes was a free header by Herman Chilupe whose effort went wide of the mark following an inch perfect cross by Kelvin Musungu and Charles Mweemba in goal for Nkana would have had no chance.
