The curtain comes down on the Faz Premier League this Saturday with Green Buffaloes and Kabwe Warriors locked in a final stretch battle finish second.

The runners-up slot in the Faz Premier League consolation is a place in African club competition next season in the Caf Confederations Cup.

Buffaloes will be hoping to finish 2nd for a second successive season and are also eying a 4th successive Caf Confederations Cup outing should they beat Young Arrows tomorrow whom they host at their temporal home of Edwin Imboela Stadium in Lusaka.

The last meeting between Buffaloes and Young Arrows finished 1-1 at Nkoloma Stadium.

2nd placed Buffaloes on 53 points, need only a draw against Young Arrows to safely secure a runners-up slot.

Warriors on the other hand are away to Konkola Blades and know Young Arrows must beat Buffaloes without reply.

The Railwaymen also know they too need to crush their hosts in Chililabombwe by 5 unanswered goals to usurp Buffaloes from 2nd place and make their Caf Confederation Cup debut next season.

Warriors beat Blades 2-0 in the firs leg last may in Kabwe and they will surely be looking for more of the same and more.

Both Buffaloes and Warriors will be without some key players in their respective matches due to Zambia Under-23 duty on Sunday away in Cote d’Ivoire where the team is playing an Olympic Qualifier.

Buffaloes will be without defender Maybin Chishmba and striker Reuben Tembo while Warriors will greatly miss star attacker Emmanuel Mayuka including defenders Clive Sichondwe and Bronson Chama.
