Zesco thump Warriors to go top


Zesco United have replaced Nkana at the top of the table after a dramatic 3-1 home win over Kabwe today at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

Warriors were denied a chance to take an early lead after seeing clear a penalty appeal in the 19th minute quashed.

This is after Warriors striker Abudi Sakala suffered a concussion after Zesco defender Zimiliseni Moyo hit him in the face with a high boot but referee Stanley Hachiwa awarded Warriors an indirect free kick inside the box that midfielder Larry Siakapisa marginally missed.

Zesco took the lead in the 33rd minute after Kelvin Musonda’s howler was pounced on by John Chingandu who punished the time-wasting goalkeeper .

Warriors equalised in the 48th minute when Siakapisa made no mistake with another trade mark free kick.

Zesco sealed their win thanks to goals from second half substitutes Akakulubelwa Mwachiaba who headed in his sides’ second on 79th minutes and Alfred Luputa who tapped-in the final goal in the 90th minute.

  1. Good for sharp razor now. as for mine police, please work hard as we can no longer afford watching you in division 1. let kalulushi & warriors get back to div-1. yali ayakali akale yelamitinia.

  2. Warriors fall from fourth position on the log to twelfth is worrying. Paradoxically, and sadly if I may add, the slump in form is happening soon after the players were awarded contracts.
    The last game Warriors played at home against Nkwazi showed a team low on aggression and devoid of ideas going forward. Since then, the team has succumbed to Konkola Blades and now Zesco conceding six goals in the process.
    As a matter of urgency the Coach must do an x-ray and establish the root cause to the sudden fall in form in our lads. Anything short of that will see the team return to the lower ranks.
    Wish the team well, though.
