FISTS OF FURY

…Nkana fan, coach trade punches

By MICHAEL MIYOBA
THERE was drama at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka when a disappointed Nkana FC fan jumped the fence and attacked coach Manfred Chabinga who reiterated by hitting back as Green Buffaloes humiliated the Zambian champions 5-0 in a week-4 FAZ Super Division fixture.

The fan whose anger was triggered by Martin Phiri’s goal which gave Buffaloes a 3-0 lead in the second half, wanted to chase Chabinga out of the Nkana technical bench, an action which did not go well with the coaches who pounced on him with kicks and punches.
The fan was however rescued by the referees before running back to the terraces where fellow Nkana fans provided cover and prevented the few Police officers who were engaged to provide security, from getting hold of the supporter.
However, the reaction from Chabinga attracted a Red Card as he was sent off by the referee.
The 5-0 defeat was Nkana’s heaviest defeat since the Super Division commenced.
A first half goal from striker Friday Samu gave Buffaloes a 1-0 lead before half time.
Buffaloes went on to dominate the second half and run riot with Friday Samu completing a brace while Martin Phiri, Frederick Mwimanzi and Youremember Banda scored the other goals for the army men.
The win, which was Buffaloes first after three draws propelled them to sixth position on the 18-team Super Division table with six points while Nkana maintain tenth position with three points from three defeats and one win.
Meanwhile, two second half goals gifted Buildcon three points after beating NAPSA Stars 2-0 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
