Lumwana Radiants vs Trident
IT’S DERBY DAY!
By Cephas Kapokoso
IS IT THE BATTLE OF BRAGGING RIGHTS or BATTLE OF THREE POINTS. The case of Kalumbila derby….
It’s yet again another tough and exciting Kalumbila derby between the two North Western Province football giants in the Faz/Eden University National League.
LUMWANA RADIANTS FC [LRFC] will play host the high flying Trident FC [TFC] at home away from home at Independence Stadium in North Western Provincial Capital, Solwezi.
This match is promising to be a cracker of a game considering that both teams would like to end the week within the confines of top four.
Is it the battle of bragging rights or battle of three points? While, hard to answer! However, Points may outweigh the bragging rights but collecting three points will mean claiming bragging rights of the Province in as far as Eden University sponsored National League is concerned.
The host, the Uranium Boys have gone three matches without a win [D D D] whereas the visiting Conqueror Boys have not lost in the three previous matches [ W W D].
On paper, the Conqueror Boys are good to take this one. The Steven Mwansa lead Trident have shown some consistency which is key in “graduating with a distinction” at the end of a one year course at Eden University. The striking force lead by the Angolan Pedro has been clinical in front of goal.
On the side, the Uranium Boys have shown some inconsistency. Although Lumwana Radiants have some “grey hairs”. They will fight to the end. Coach Bilton Musonda will be banking on Gift kasusu.
It will be the battle of best tacticians.
It will be the 2rd vs the 3rd
It be the Uranium Boys vs the Conqueror Boys
It will be Lumwana Radiants vs Trident
It will be a Kalumbila Derby
