Simon Nkhata late strike earns Napsa maximum points
A 79th minute Simon Nkata goal was enough to ensure that NAPSA Stars picked up maximum points at home maintaining their 100 percent winning start to the season.
It was a frustrating afternoon for the pensioners who for most of the first half were chasing Kansanshi Dynamos.
The Muhammad Fathi drilled side showed glimpses of glamour but the Kansanshi defense was up to the task till Simon Nkata took advantage of ball watching by the Kansashi defenders and punished them eleven minutes from time.
Kansashi Head Coach Isreal Mwanza described the loss as being painful but he remained proud of his lads for having put up a spirited fight despite the lack of experience.
“It was a 50-50 affair but the boys lost concentration in the second half which cost us,” he said.
Napsa Stars coach Muhammad Fathi described the match as tough. The Egyptian born gaffer believes the win in week one against Power dynamos gave the Mabanga Boys a lot of motivation.
“It was not an easy game, they were coming from a win at home and they were motivated but our team did not play the way they did in Mufulira, They were a bit down,” he said.
The win takes Napsa Stars to the summit of the log joint on points and goal difference with twelve-time Super League Champions, Nkana.
Kansashi will host Green Eagles in their next match while Napsa Stars date Lusaka Dynamos in a week three Lusaka derby.
