Nkana and Zesco United battle to return to winning ways on Wednesday in their respective FAZ Super Week 11 fixtures.

In Kitwe, leaders Nkana will rekindle old rivalries at home against Mighty Mufulira Wanderers.

Nkana have picked up one points from their last two matches after losing 3-1 away to Green Buffaloes a week ago and drawing 1-1 at home with Power Dynamos on Saturday.

They now have a slender one point lead on 20 points ahead of Zanaco.

However Mighty, who are just above the bottom four drop zone in 14th position, have recorded five draws in their last eight games since beating Nkwazi 2-1 in Mufulira on March 26.

That win remains the nine-time champions only league victory of the 2016 campaign who head to Nkana where they were bashed 3-0 last season.

And sadly there will be no reunion for Nkana midfielder Jacob Ngulube following his acrimonious exit from Mighty this year.

Ngulube is away on Zambia duty preparing for Chipolopolo’s 2017 Africa Cup Group E qualifier against Guinea Bissau away on June 4.

In Chingola, defending champions Zesco are on the road at Nchanga Rangers where they are hunting for their first win after a four-match winless run in which they have picked up just three draws and a 1-0 away loss at Forest Rangers.

That poor run has seen Zesco drop from 2nd to 3rd on 18 points.

And at Sunset Stadium in Lusaka, Zanaco play Napsa Stars looking to remain the only unbeaten side in the league this season.

Zanaco are aware that a home win for them in Lusaka and a draw for Nkana will see them take command of the log for the first time this season.
