Defender Richard Ocran out of Nkana-Zesco game

Nkana FC will yet again be without Ghanaian guardsman Richard Ocran and Kenya’s Musa Muhammed as the pair are still unavailable for Sunday’s Confederation Cup Group C match against Zesco United.

Ocran was sent off for elbowing Sogne Yacouba when Nkana defeated Kotoko by three goals to one and he is serving his final game ban whilst his central defensive partner Musah Muhammed is injured.

The absence of the Ocran and Musah is a big worry to coach Beston Chambeshi as he faces old foes and city rivals Zesco.
Both teams need a win to revive their hopes of making it to the next stage of the competition.

Nkana have six points and are third on the log whilst Zesco are last with four points.
