Action for Evans and Klings Kangwa in Arsenal loss
The Zambian duo put in a decent shift but could not help Arsenal Tula as they suffered their 3rd straight loss.
striker Evans Kangwa started upfront alongside Evgeni Lutsenko and Goran Čaušić while Lameck Banda and Klings Kangwa started from the bench.
Akhmat Grozny took the lead after just 15 minutes as Evgeni Kharin beat Yuri Lodygin with a nice lobe after being out on goal by Andrés Fabián Ponce Núñez with a brilliant pass.
Things turned from bad to worse for Tula after Ponce was shaved in the back and referee Vasiliy Kazartsev wasted no time pointing to the penalty spot, Albanian attacker Odise Roshi stepped up and sent Lodygin the wrong way.
Tula’s first real effort on goal came in the 25th minute with Evans Kangwa drifting to the box before unleashing a shot but Evgeni Gorodov managed to deal with it. Lutsenko had a chance to pull one back but failed to make meaningful contact with the ball.
Five minutes into the second half , Grozny almost made it 3-0 but Lodygin made a brilaint save to keep out a header.
Ponce grabbed his brace two minutes to time with a powerful drive from inside the area after a defensive mix up by the Tula defenders.
Lutsenko pulled one back in additional time with Second half substitute Klings Kangwa involved in the build-up, 3-1 the match ended.
