Nkana coach Zeddy Saileti has dedicated his sides’ first away win to the clubs victory-starved Midlands fans.
Nkana beat Red Arrows 3-0 on Sunday to end their three-game winless drought away run this season after picking up three scoreless results prior to today’s win at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.
“I dedicate this win to our Lusaka soccer fans because it hasn’t been easy to win in Lusaka,” Saileti said.
Nkana’s last visit to Lusaka on April 5 ended in a scoreless draw at Napsa Stars that the defending FAZ Super Division champions sandwiched with similar results at Green Eagles and Indeni.
Last season, Nkana won just two of their six league games on the Midlands where they beat demoted Nkwazi 1-0 and Kabwe Warriors 2-1.
They lost 1-0 to both Napsa Stars and Arrows but picked up similar 1-1 results at Green Buffaloes and Zanaco.
And Sunday’s win at Nkoloma was Nkana’s first at Arrows since September, 2008 when they beat their hosts 2-1.
