Defending league champions Zanaco roared to the summit of the Faz Premier League table today after an emphatic 6-1 home win over Nakambala Leopards at Sunset stadium in Lusaka in a delayed week 1 fixture.

Zanaco are on 16 points after Wednesday win, level with former leaders and now second placed Young Arrows whom they topple thanks to a superior goal difference.

The Bankers took a 3-1 lead into the break through Mumamba Numba who scored a two with goals in the 29th and 36th minutes on his way to recording a hat-trick on the day.

Winston Kalengo made it 3-0 in-between before ex-Afrisports striker Dan Masumba cut Zanaco’s lead with Nakambala’s consolation goal a minute before the break.

Kelvin Kaindu stretched Zanaco’s lead to four on the hour-mark and Numba completed his hat-trick with the hosts’ fifth goal of the day ten minutes later.

Frazer Mwewa completed the rout with Zanaco’s sixth and final goal of the game in the 81st minute.

The defeat left former Zanaco star and now Nakambala coach Chris “Gaza” Tembo without a win against his old club since guiding the Mazabuka side to the top-flight for the first time last season.

Zanaco have now won two league games against Nakambala and drew 2-2 in their last meeting away in Mazabuka in a week 28 fixture last November 5.

Nakambala meanwhile, are 4th from bottom following this afternoon’s away defeat.
