Kalulushi Modern Stars on Sunday maintained their one point lead at the top of the FAZ Division One North table after beating Mufulira Blackpool 1-0 at Independence Stadium in Kalulushi.

A first half strike from Cephas Haandavu lifted Kalulushi to 49 points, one above second placed Lumwana Radiants after 24 matches played.

Haandavu scored the only goal in the 23rd minute to send the home fans at Independence Stadium into wild celebrations.

Lumwana remained second on the table after a 2-0 win over Mining Rangers in Kitwe thanks to goals from Rodgers Mukenga and Hilary Bwalya.

In Luanshya, Roan United dropped from 4th to 6th position with 36 points after a 2-0 home loss to visiting Gomes Wanderers at Kafubu Stadium.

Gerald Chisha and Vernon Sikalinda were the scorers as Gomes frustrated Roan’s chances of bouncing back to the Super Division this season.

At Garden Park Stadium, Kitwe United struggled to beat Zesco Solwezi as they needed a late own goal from defender Mathews Mwale to silence the visitors on the nick of full time.
