Super Division leaders Zesco United on Saturday host revived Nkana in a grudge Copperbelt derby at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium plotting a routine win over their nemesis.

Zesco have never lost to Nkana in the last 11 years.

George Lwandamina’s side go into this Week 20 match buoyed after restoring a four point lead at the top thanks to a FAZ disciplinary committee ruling that saw them awarded a 3-0 win following their abandoned away Week 19 match against Mufulira Wanderers.

Zesco now leads the table with 43 points, four ahead of second placed Power Dynamos. However, Zesco are predicting a tough match against Nkana in Ndola. “The game against Nkana won’t be easy but we want to win,” Zesco goalkeeper Jacob Banda said.

The first round match between Nkana and Zesco finished score-less on April 19 in Wusakile. Ninth placed Nkana are unbeaten in their first four matches of the first round in which they have posted two wins and two draws.

“If we can have three wins in a role that will be a bonus to us. We really want to beat Zesco at their home ground,” Nkana coach Aggrey Chiyangi said. “Zesco will be at home so it is them who will be under pressure,” Chiyangi added.

Meanwhile, Levy Mwanawasa Stadium will host the 13h00 kickoff match between Forest Rangers and Napsa Stars. In Lusaka third placed Zanaco are renewing their rivalry with Green Buffaloes at Sunset Stadium
