Napsa Stars held by Rangers



Napsa Stars were held to a goalless draw at home to Forest Rangers in a low key week 30 delayed fixture played at Edwin Imboela Stadium on Sunday.

The two sides went in at the break without registering any shots on target. However, the half-time pep talk seemed to have an effect on both teams as they both ventured forward more purposefully.

Nasha Kaaya had the best chance in the 51st to put Rangers ahead but goalkeeper Cossam Sinkala reacted well and narrowed the gap to deny the visitors an opening goal.

At the other end Mike Silavwe's free kicked was acrobatically parried behind for a corner by Joel Kanyeba in what was the last real chance either side had for a goal.

Napsa Stars coach Peter Kaumba told SuperSport.com that his side could have done better.

"We did not play according to instruction and we did not create any chances," said Kaumba.

Kaumba's counterpart Weston Mumba of Forest Rangers was satisfied with his team's performance.

"Forest were struggling when I joined them in mid-season but we quickly stabilsed and am happy that we survived relegation," Mumba said.

The result means Forest Rangers have finished in eighth position with 38 points while Napsa Stars finished ninth with 37 points.
