Nkana coach Beston Chambeshi admits Saturday’s scoreless home draw against Kansanshi Dynamos at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe just wasn’t good enough in their push to return to the top four of the 2021/2022 FAZ Super League log.
The draw saw the record 13-time Zambian champions make a modest recovery from last weekend’s 2-1 away loss to the league title holders Zesco United in their Copperbelt derby showdown in Ndola on February 19.
Last weekend’s loss also saw Nkana drop from fourth to sixth on the log with nine games left to play.
“Very, very disappointing and you know the games are going and our target was picking points at home but we are dropping points again at home,” Chambeshi said.
“This is worrying but we should not put our heads down but continue fighting.”
The draw against Kansanshi saw Nkana drop another notch to seventh on 37 points, eleven points behind leaders Red Arrows who were in action by press time on Sunday away to Forest Rangers in Ndola.
Kansanshi are 10th on 32 points and unbeaten under their new coach Boyd Mulwanda with three wins and a draw in his four games at the helm since the Solwezi club poached him from Buildcon at the end of January.
“Kansanshi are on top of their game now. They are playing well and it wasn’t an easy game but we are disappointed with the result,” Chambeshi said.
