 Chambeshi hails Nkana win at Power

By Mercy Chewe
Nkana coach Beston Chambeshi says the 2-0 win over Kitwe rivals Power Dynamos in the derby is crucial as his team fight to survive relegation in the FAZ Super Division.

Former Power striker Alex Ng’onga and midfielder Diamond Chikwekwe at Arthur Davies Stadium on Sunday as relegation threatened Nkana ended a ten-match winless run.

In a post-match interview, Chambeshi told journalists that he was impressed with his players’ performance.

“You can tell that the boys are coming up now and it was not easy playing Power but a local derby is just like a better team wins,” Chambeshi said.

“I am happy with the win. I hope we will see a lot of changes in the remaining matches as we go forward. For sure in every move there must be a step, so I think this is a good step we have taken for sure we will try our best so that we borrow the pace of a tortoise and see where we will end,” he said.

The Kitwe giants stay second from the bottom of the table on 25 points, nine away from the survival line with nine games left for them to play.

Power coach Perry Mutapa claimed his side was better than Nkana despite losing this Super Division match.

“I think it’s more hurting in terms of results. I still believe we are better than Nkana but Nkana they have utilised their opportunities,” Mutapa said.
