Kalampa seek redemption against chingalika

Kitwe City is expected to come to a standstill on Saturday when Nkana and Kitwe United battle it out in ‘Big Kitwe Derby’ at Nkana Stadium as the MTN-FAZ Super Division enters Week 13 .

Kick-off is at 15h00 in Wusakile.

This is the first Nkana and Kitwe are meeting since 2009 when they were both in Division One.

This will be another daunting task for Nkana who have played 3 games without a win .

The Mopani Sponsored side must beat Chingalika to revive chances of qualifying for Barclays Cup.

Nkana have lost 4 games this season at home after succumbing to defeats against Power Dynamos, Zesco United , Green Buffaloes and Zanaco.

On Wednesday , Zanaco handed Kalampa their 4th home loss of the season with 1-0 defeat thanks to a Taonga Bwembya free kick .

Kitwe are bubbling with confidence prior to this encounter following their 3-0 bashing of National Assembly last Saturday in Kitwe.

Kalampa are 7th on the league table with 20 points while the 10th placed Buchi Boys have 17 points .

A win for United will see them go 9th on the table with 20 points at par with Nkana who are also on 20 points but has a superior goal difference .

Meanwhile, the Wusakile Boys should be worry of United’s trio of Rodgers Mukenge , Rupert Musonda and Emmanuel Chabula who have been bagging goals for the Council owned side .

On the other hand, forwards Idris Ilunga Mbombo, Walter Bwalya and Ronald Kampamba may cause a great damage to the Buchi Boys defence .

But Nkana should improve in defence which has been exposed in the recent matches with the latest being the 2-2 draw against Kabwe Youth Academy in which they gave away a 2-0 lead to escape with a point at Godfrey Ucher Chitalu Stadium recently.

From the past 6 encounters , Kitwe have won 4 times while Nkana have only managed 1 win .
