Sports Lumwana stun Roan to smell promotion

Lumwana Radiants on Wednesday moved closer to winning promotion to the FAZ Super Division after thumping Roan United 2-0 to open a four point lead.

Godfrey Chitalu Stadium in Kabwe.

  1. LT this headline is back again. What does it mean please. I think am the only one that cant work it out. Guys help me please don’t judge me, I just cant get it.


  2. The only reason I chose to read this article was just to find out what the writer meant by 2 of 31,046 Lumwana stun Roan to smell promotion. I have absolutely no idea, even after reading I cannot make out what was in the mind of the journalist.

  3. Editor please explain!
    I am an avid fan and cracker of Cryptic crosswords but this one is a sure ‘No Definition’!
    4 of many LT stunned commenters smell a conspiracy!

  4. Recently I was in Africa and had the opportunity to watch a Zambian match on Supersport Nakambala Vs Mufulira Wanderers.
    I really missed Dennis Liwewe cos listening to the commentators was embarrassing. Anyone know what they meant by:
    Mighty, playing at home with the whole of Africa in view
    A chance!Good header. .and the goalkeeper had it coming..He saves
    Mike Katiba, with a flat dry shot
    He went down..He was worked upon and he came back on the pitch
    Mighty had 48 percent of possession the last 10 minutes and generally in charge of 32
    And Mighty now pushing the issue!
    Both players that have come will push the issue
    And referee Mr Wellington Kaoma says enough is enough. He blows the final whistle
