Nkana FC continue relegation fight at Zanaco


Nkana FC will continue their desperate bid to avoid relegation when they travel to second-placed Zanaco in the MTN Super League on Wednesday.

But Zanaco could seal second place in the league and CAF Champions League football next season with a win, so it is all to play for between the sides.

Nkana will need a win themselves to move out of the relegation zone, though they might feel a point would not be a bad result in this tough away encounter.

A win would drop Indeni into the relegation mix with both sides then having two rounds of matches remaining. 

Nkana were surprise 3-2 losers at Young Green Eagles at the weekend, but before that had won three games in a row.

Zanaco have not played since the end of May so could be rusty for this clash, which has been evenly contested down the years.

The last 22 meetings have seen eight wins each and six draws, including a 1-1 stalemate in the reverse fixture in November.

Kabwe Warriors will seek to go back into third place and the CAF Confederation Cup qualification places when they host Prison Leopards, who have won two of their last three games but are not quite out of the relegation mix quite yet.

Warriors have been patchy with five wins and four losses in their last nine games – it is clearly win or bust.

Leopards stunned newly-crowned champions Zesco United 3-0 in their last game, which was all the way back on 26 May.

Finally, Buildcon will also have eyes on those Confederation Cup slots when they welcome Nkwazi, who are another side still nervously looking over their shoulder at the relegation scrap.

The latter have been inactive for over a month, which could well be telling in this encounter.
