KITWE United coach Stephen Mwansa was left disappointed by his strikers in the 1-all draw against Nkwazi on Sunday.
And Nkwazi coach Albert Mphande says he was happy to get a point away from home.
There was much anticipation from the passionate Buchi supporters after the team’s impressive win at Red Arrows last week.
Striker Rodgers Mukenge made the fans’ belief even stronger when he scored early in the 8th minute to put his team ahead.
But the ‘Chingalika’ wasted chances to increase the goal tally as pressure from the packed Garden Park arena taking a toll on some young players.
Experience soon rewarded Nkwazi when veteran midfielder Sebastian Mwansa curled in a free kick from outside the box to level matters in the 44th minute.
The draw meant that Kitwe missed a chance to go second on the Super League table after week six results.
“We were playing for a win but it ended in a draw. But we also missed a lot of chances to score. We created chances but we can’t score. The problem is the strikers; the team is playing well but they are not scoring. We have to work on that,” said Mwansa.
Mphande said: “I am quite happy with the way the boys fought. It’s not easy playing away from home. We came, we planned for them, we got a goal. We need to work on our defence.”
