Nkana FC center back Ben Adama Bahn says his side capitalised on Asante Kotoko’s progressive style to hurt them in the 3-1 victory on Sunday.
The Zambian giants secured their second home win in the competition over the Porcupine Warriors to climb top of group C with six points.
Asante Kotoko were impressive and dominated possession but lacked the cutting edge as Nkana took advantage of the few chances created to secure all three points on Sunday. “Asante Kotoko has a strong team and they proved it yesterday with their possessive football. We capitalised on their style by resorting to a more direct style .
Nkana FC got the advantage to open the scoring in the 21st minute after they were awarded a penalty. Abdul Ganiu Ismail brought down forward Walter Bwalya inside the box and Freddy Tshimenga stepped up the score. Burkina Faso import Songné Yacouba drew the Porcupine Warriors level with a blistering free-kick two minutes later.
Ronald “Sate Sate” Kampamba restored the lead for the Likulu side three minutes afterwards after connecting a headed pass from Bwalya. Kampamba increased the lead for the home side in the 53rd minute after heading home a Gift Zulu cross.
