Mopani Derby. Nkana Football Club will be seeking to bounce back to winning ways when they host fellow legendary side Mufulira Wanderers. This Sunday’s FAZ Super League match in Wusakile is dubbed as the Mopani Derby.
Mufulira Wanderers since start of the season have been dwindling in the lowest ebb of the super league table.
