Kabwe Warriors supporters rioted at Godfrey Chitalu Stadium on Saturday forcing referee Milton Mweemba to abandon their FAZ Super League Week 22 match against Nkana.
Nkana were 1-0 up with three minutes left to play when Warriors fans started throwing assorted missiles on the pitch after Mweemba ruled out Josphat Kasusu’s 87th minute goal for offside.
It took 15 minutes for match officials to call-off the game as the out-numbered police officers could not control irate home fans who continued pelting missiles on the pitch.
This is the second time Warriors fans are rioting in the 2014 Super League season.
Nkana took a 1-0 lead into the half time break thanks to Festus Mbewe’s 13th minute goal that silenced the home fans.
Nkana missed a chance to double the lead when Claude Bwalya’s header was ruled out for offside.
Warriors dominated the match but were denied by power finishing and the upright as Kasusu’s cracker hit the woodwork in the 60th minute.
