…as they date “Sharp” Konkola Blades in Super League opener
By MICHAEL MIYOBA
HIGH Flying Nkwazi FC will be aiming to fly higher as the new season begins today to finish in top six and qualify for the ABSA Cup after surviving relegation on the final day of the 2022-2023 MTN/FAZ Super League.
The Zambia Police-sponsored outfit launch the league with a home clash against promoted Konkola Blades who are determined to avoid a return to the National Division One League.
Nkwazi FC assistant coach Dennis Makinka believes the Police outfit is ready for the new season after adequate preparations.
Despite having lost top strikers in Justin Shonga, Bernard Kumwenda and Christopher Zulu, Makinka is confident that the new players signed on will be able to impress.
Asked if Nkwazi was under pressure facing a promoted side, Makinka said; “A new team is always hard to plan against so we will be picking momentum as the game progresses.
