Nkana acting coach Kaunda Simonda has declared Kalampa ready to face Egyptian side Pyramids in Wednesday’s CAF Confederation Cup Group D match at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.
The match will kick off at 15h00.
Ahead of this Group D match in Ndola, Nkana and Pyramids are tied on six points each, six behind leaders Raja Casablanca of Morocco.
Nkana have posted two straight wins against bottom placed Namungo in their latest Group D matches to revive chances of progressing to the quarterfinals.
“It is going to be a difficult game knowing that we are all at six points. Whoever wins then has the advantage of playing the quarterfinal stage. We are prepared for this game and we want to win it,” said Kaunda.
Pyramid coach Aroua Barina believes his team’s 3-0 win over Nkana on March 10 in Cairo is water under the bridge as the two teams meet at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.
“It is a very important game for Nkana and for my team. I will try to play well and win. This is a different match,” Barina said.
Meanwhile, Casablanca are visiting Namungo in Tanzania on Wednesday in the other Group D match.
