Zesco United on Thursday drew 2-2 away to Nkwazi to stay put in 7th position in the two sides Faz Super Division Week 18 game played at Edwin Emboela Stadium in Lusaka.

Nkwazi had requested the match be brought forward as they will be out of the country representing Zambia at the regional police games in Congo.

Meanwhile, Zesco squandered the three points after leading 2-0 in the opening half-hour of the game.

Alfred Luputa was making his second appearance for Zesco after a four-month injury layoff scored a brace with goals in the 16th and 28th minutes.

However, Nkwazi rallied with two goals of their own before the break when Fisher Lungu found the back of Zesco’s net in the 34th minute.

Derrick Mwansa leveled scores from the penalty spot a minute before half time to see the two sides share the three points.

Zesco, who are now unbeaten in Masautso Mwale’ last two games from three matches since taking charge a fortnight ago after Fighton Simukonda was fired, remain in 7th on 24 points after 16 games played with two matches in hand.

Nkwazi on the other hand move one place up the table from 11th to 10th place on 21 points.
