Roan United on Saturday kept their slim chances of bouncing back to the FAZ Super Division alive after coming from behind to beat Copperbelt Buffaloes 2-1 at Kafubu Stadium in Luanshya.
Victory in this Week 28 match was Roan’s 13th of the season and it pushed the third placed club to 49 points on the table, three behind second placed Kalulushi Modern Stars.
Copperbelt Buffaloes, formerly Kalewa, made a false start to this FAZ Division One North match with Job Kama giving them a 17th minute lead.
The Zambia Army outfit deserved to take an early lead after creating four great chances before breaking the deadlock.
The two teams went to half time break with a 1-0 score-line.
However, the John Lungu coached side managed to turn the game on its head with a revived performance in the last half.
It took just seven minutes after break for Roan to equalise through Jeffrey Siakasipe before Lyson Sikaonga grabbed the winner five minutes away from time.
This was Roan’s four consecutive victory.
Meanwhile, other Division One matches will be played on Sunday.
