National Assembly Vs Nkana
Bestone Chambeshi has avoided the spotlight since replacing Zeddy Saileti last season as Nkana Coach, but the big man will be in the full glare when he begins his 2018 season at Woodlands Stadium on Friday. Especially with the free points benefited from the none played encounter against Forest Rangers.
While rivals have toiled in the transfer market, Bestone has done his business quietly and Nkana appear settled and stable as they attempt to reclaim the Super League title.
National Assembly, meanwhile, appear the polar opposite and Oswald Mutapa’s main concerns may be the expectations around the team especially after that first day winner away at Buildcon.
Nkana are unbeaten in eight against National Assembly, home and away. The only points that National Assembly got against Nkana are two points from the last eight games between the two. 0-0 draws in 2010 and 2012. I think this prowess continues as that striking force of Nkana is fierce.
MY Verdict: National Assembly 0-2 Nkana
