Napsa Stars FC was held at home to a one all draw result against Choma side Green Eagles FC in a week six MTN Super League match played at Woodlands Stadium yesterday.
The pensioners who now moved a step upwards on the log and back into top three with 11 points from the six game played, were the first to score one of the earliest goals in the 2nd minute through a Bornwel Mwape well calculated long range shot.
The one nil lead was enjoyed by the home side up until the second half when Eagles responded through a Gozon Mutale strike in the 50th minute.
In the 78th minute, Napsa Stars Striker Mambote Assis who came in as substitute for Laudit Mavugo, scored for the pensioners but his goal was ruled out as the player was in an offside position.
It was a 50/50 situation for both sides who have failed to beat each other since the Transitional league season were draws were recorded in the first and second half of the season.
In a post-match interview, Napsa Stars FC head coach Mohamed Fathi said he was not pleased with the result, but added that a point coming from a loss was not a bad result for his team.
“We are still in contention and this results just shows that we are willing to fight for a win in the next fixture,” Fathi said.
And Eagles assistant coach Alex Namanzaba said Napsa gave his side a good fight adding that a point was not a bad result for Eagles in an away game.
“It was a good game, they played well in the first half and we came back in the second half and managed to equalise which was good for us,” Namanzaba said.
Meanwhile Napsa plays their week seven fixture this Thursday against Nkwazi FC at Edwin Imboela Stadium.
The Mohamed Fathi coached side held a recovery session this morning in readiness for this encounter.
