What may be seem as a battle between the Hungry and the Hungrier is on today at Nkoloma Stadium as a hungry for another victory side, Napsa Stars FC host a hounded and hungrier Forest Rangers in a week 10 MTN Super league encounter.
Forest are coming from a three- game loss and will be looking forward to collecting maximum points from this Mohamed Fathi coached side which seems to be more hungry for victory in each match that comes.
Napsa has so far recorded five wins, two draws and one loss and has a game in hand going into this game, while Forest has played their nine games so far, won three, drawn two and lost four going into this game.
It will not be an easy match for both teams as pride is also at stake between these two sides who in their last six meetings have not managed to record any draws, with results being either a win or a loss for each side.
Coach Fathi has prepared his strong 18-man squad with Captain Dickson Chapa back in action after missing last Wednesday’s game owing to a red card which he obtained in a game played against Nkwazi FC last week.
Forest Ranger’s coach Perry Mutapa has also travelled to Lusaka with his strong 18-man squad to take on this Lusaka based side.
It is always never an easy fight between these two sides with Napsa having recorded four wins against Forest in their last six meetings while Forest has beaten Napsa twice. The goal difference has always been one.

1st leg – Forest Rangers FC 0-1 Napsa Stars FC
