Zesco United host struggling Mufulira Blackpool with an eye on three points that will see them knock on leaders Nkana’s door.
The defending champions are currently second on the FAZ Super Division table on 12 points, four points behind leaders Nkana after four and six games played respectively.
Zesdco host second from bottom Blackpool who have yet to pick up a league win this season when they ended their 16 year absence from the FAZ Super Division.
Victory for Zesco will move them within one point of Nkana who only play on Sunday when they host Lusaka Dynamos at Nkana Stadium in Kitwe.
Zesco striker Idris Mbombo is set to return to action after missing Wednesday 2-0 away win over Napsa Stars due to injury.
And Zesco’s game against Blackpool will be the two sides first since they met in 2003 in Division 1 North.
Zesco drew 0-0 away in Mufulira before beating Blackpool 2-1 en route to promotion that season and things only got better for the Ndola side who now have five league titles to their name.
Meanwhile, Zesco will be looking over their shoulders this Saturday with another unbeaten side Nakambala Leopards, who are 3rd and tied with them on points but with an inferior goal difference, take to the field at home in Mazabuka.
Nakambala will also be hoping to maintain their unbeaten start to the campaign under ex-Zambia coach Patrick Phiri when they host Nchanga Rangers in Mazabuka.
