Real Nakonde vs Red Arrows
Honor Janza knows what is required for the death match with Real Nakonde. You need players who can head the ball and Festus Mbewe is one that can partner Mundia. I don’t think starting Francis Kombe did well for Red Arrows against Lumwana Radiants in week two. Also the defensive play of Bruce getting to the defense line didn’t help Red Arrows in that encounter .
This could be the game Honor Janza, could earn his substantial wages with a win away at Nakonde. With most of his enormous squad available especially that he may have Bronson Chama back the Red Arrows manager also knows only victory will suffice. Defeat against Real Nakonde, and people could forget all good play Red Arrows has been sighted with from the first game against ZANACO.
The two teams have two points each from two draws but credit to Real Nakonde who got the second draw on the rod while Red Arrows has been in Lusaka all those two encounters.
Real Nakonde has shown stability already and they are capable of shocking Red Arrows in this encounter especially if the air men face this game with the complacency we saw against Lumwana Radiants. Time is running out for Honor Janza he needs to get his first win.
Real Nakonde showed concentration when they equalised at the death of the encounter against Forest Rangers . A good encounter and I think one team will get the win and I fancy the home team.
My Verdict: Real Nakonde 1-0 Red Arrows
