Buffaloes 3 Year Jinx Trouble Nkana -Who Will Slice The Bread?

Having only managed to record one away league win against Green Buffaloes since 2008, Nkana will on Sunday seek to better their record when the two teams clash in a Super Division Week 30 match at Edwin Imboela Stadium in Lusaka.

Kick-off is at 15h00 and the match is live on SuperSport.

Buffaloes have been a thorn in Nkana’s flesh for the past 3 years posting 6 consecutive wins since 30 May, 2015.

The Army side silenced the Mopani bankrolled team 2-1 in the first instalment played at Nkana Stadium earlier in the season.

Kalampa are 4th on the table with 52 points, while the Soldiers are 2nd on 62 points.

Both Nkana and Buffaloes enter Sunday’s showdown on the back of wins, with Kalampa having outwitted Kabwe Warriors 2-0 in Kitwe, while the Soldiers saw off National Assembly 1-0 at Woodlands Stadium.

Nkana have gone 10 league games without defeat and a win on Sunday could see them move up to 3rd place on the table should Green Eagles fail to win against Nkwazi.

On the other hand, Buffaloes could go top of the table with a win against Nkana provided Zesco United drop points in Kabwe.

In head-to-head stats, Buffaloes and Nkana have met 18 times in the League since 2008.

Buffaloes have a slight edge, having won 9 games to Nkana’s 7, while 2 encounters have been draws.

The Wusakile Boys last tamed Buffaloes in Lusaka on October 4, 2014 with a 2-1 win.

Last year, Buffaloes beat Nkana in both home and away ties via a 3-1 and 3-2 score line respectively.
