Zesco finally got some relief over Dynamos who beat them 1-0 in the BP Top 8 final played on November 8 at Nchanga Stadium in Chingola.

The defending Barclays Cup champions will face Power Dynamos in the finals on December 6 at a venue to be advised in an all Copperbelt cup derby.

  1. “This will be Power’s first cup final since 2003 when they won the Mosi and Coca Cola Cup’s”. Or cups (plural of cup)? Lost in translation. By the way I’m No. 2

  2. This is sad for Donwell Yobe, people were hoping that maybe he could impress Herve, but it seems this is the beginning of his end.

  3. #2 are you an english teacher? Why dont you contribute positively rather than monitoring mistakes.

    All the best ba power.

  4. hard lucky lusaka dynamos.iam happy for ba fighton,it has being a miserable year for the man,but he has done a great job.

  5. #4 As a matter of fact I’m not. I just hold the view that apart from grating, the use of bad grammar and punctuations misrepresents the writer’s views. If in fact that writer writes for a news outlet such as LT it reflects badly on the calibre and professionalism of the outlet. That is not being negative. Or must I define negative for you?
