CAF CC: Advantage Nkana as Al Hilal are held by Asante Kotoko
Nkana will go into the final round of the CAF Confederation Cup group stage games as group C leaders after Asante Kotoko were held toa 1 – 1 draw at home by Al Hilal.
The Sudanese side Al Hilal led in Ghana with a 33rd minute goal scored by Waleed Bhaket Hamid and were looking like they will seal qualification with a game to spare.
Buoyed by the partisan home, Kotoko left it late to level when Songne finished off a Gyamfi pass in the 86th minute.
The result leaves Nkana on top on 9 points, with Al Hilal their next opponents on 8 points.
Asante Kotoko who will be travelling to Ndola for their final group game next Sunday have 7 points while bottom placed Zesco United who have no chance of qualifying to the quarter finals are on 4 points.
Nkana still have work to do as they have to at least pick a draw away against Al Hilal to be sure of qualification.
