Zesco United look set to advance to the first round of the 2015 CAF Champions League when they host Mbabane Swallows of Swaziland in the return leg tie of the preliminary round at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium on Saturday.
The two teams are tied 1-1 from the first leg match played in Manzini two weeks ago.
Justin Zulu’s away goal in Swaziland can send Zesco to the next round in case the game in Ndola finished goalless.
George Lwandamina’s side warmed up for this match by beating Nkana 5-4 on penalties after their replayed Charity Shield semifinal ended 1-1 in Kitwe on Sunday.
Ahead of this crucial match, Lwandamina has remained cagey.
“I am sure the team is ready, we started preparations long way back so I am sure we we are set,” said the 2014 Zambian coach of the year.
Lwandamina said his players are looking forward to the clash against Swallows.
“As usual they are looking forward to the game.Football is a game of challenges but we have to overcome challenges,” Lwandamina said.
The overall winners between Zesco and Swallows will meet either Kaloum of Guinea or Ivorian club Sewe Sport in the first round.
