Forest ends Zanaco’s unbeaten run

Sports Forest ends Zanaco's unbeaten run

Zanaco’s eleven-match unbeaten run in the 2016 FAZ Super Division campaign has ended after suffering a 1-0 loss at Forest Rangers in Ndola on Sunday.

Forward Kobe Chipeta came off the bench to score a decisive solitary goal two minutes into the second half additional time at Trade Fair Grounds.

Chipeta, who replaced Innocent Mwaba after 52 minutes, beat Zanaco keeper Mangani Banda with a fine diving header to justify coach Patrick Phiri’s faith in him.
