Nkana coach Zeddy Saileti says Wednesday’s home defeat against Zesco United is very painful.

The defeating champions lost 1-0 at Nkana Stadium to extend their ten-year winless run against fifth placed Zesco.

“It is very difficult to accept this loss because we knew what we are capable of doing at home. I think a draw was going to be enough for us,” Saileti said.

“We have to stay focused, we are still in contention, and we just need to work hard and the players need to stay focused to be mentally strong.”

The loss has left Nkana still seven points behind second placed Zesco and leaders Zanaco who are tied on 33 points.

Nkana, on 26 points from fourteen games with a match in hand, have a chance to redeem themselves away on saturday when they visit 10th placed Nchanga Rangers in Chingola.
