It was a match which many looked forward to and despite the late change of dates a number of fans turned up for the match while many watched live on Supersport on a day that saw Nkana Fc give it’s Kenyan International defender Musa Muhammed his debut.
The football did not disappoint and was played at a frantic pace with Nkana fc striker Ronald ” Sate Sate” Kampamba scoring the first goal late in the first half before Zesco equalised in the 64th minute through Lazarous Kambole.
Trouble began after the 80th minute mark as Nkana fans threw missiles onto the pitch before the match resumed after 7 minutes which saw Nkana FC awarded a late penalty when Zesco United defender Marcel Kalonda handled the ball after an aerial tussle with Nkana Fc striker I Idriss Mbombo and it is at this point where mayhem broke out as Zesco United fans also began throwing missiles onto the pitch.
