Nkana’s sweet victory was revenge


Nkana’s 4-1 victory over Lusaka Dynamos at the weekend was a sweet revenge after they beat us 3-0 in the first leg, says Nkana coach Aggrey Chiyengi.

Chiyengi said the 4-1 victory over Lusaka Dynamos in  a Week 25 Super Division match at Nkana Stadium on Saturday was not by chance but one that his boys had prepared for.

“We did not want to suffer another embarrassment at the hands of Lusaka Dynamos.  The earlier 3-0 defeat left us sore and angry. We psyched the players not to underrate them this time and  work extra hard. Our opponent was not given chance to move around; the boys were at it throughout the 90 minutes,” he said.

He said it was good that Lusaka Dynamos scored earlier to wake up his lads who started the game a bit slow.

Lusaka Dynamos coach Perry Mutapa said his team lost control of the game immediately one player was sent off.

“It is obviously very difficult to play 10 against 11. I think that is what really changed the game and the result. I think even with a man down at 3-1 in some patches we controlled the game but again it is very difficult to play. They gave a good fight and if the match was eleven versus eleven, the result would have been different,” he said.

Meanwhile, Nkwazi coach Elijah Chikwanda commended his boys for forcing a 1-all draw against Power Dynamos although they were fatigued.

“It is not a bad result. We have played four games in two weeks and the boys were stressed. I commend the boys for even forcing a draw.  We will keep pushing and take each game as it comes,” he said.

Power Dynamos assistant coach Anderson Phiri said the team needs a player  with confidence to convert chances.

“We had about 10 clear chances, but we failed to convert because we were in a hurry. But we just need somebody with confidence to convert the chances. We are not giving up till the league goes to the wire,” he said.
