Sports Zesco down Dynamos to rise to second place

Zesco United beat Lusaka Dynamos 2-0 away in Lusaka on Wednesday in a rescheduled FAZ Super Division Week 13 fixture to relegated Nkana to 3rd place.

Zesco exchange places with Nkana following the victory moving to the number two position on goal difference.

Goals from Jackson Mwanza and Cletus Chama at Edwin Emboela Stadium saw Zesco move to 28 points, six behind leaders Zanaco.

Mwanza put Zesco ahead in the 34 minute minute to see the defending Super Division champions take a 1-0 halftime lead.

Chama then fired in a free kick in the 48th minute to score his third goal in two goals.

His goal came just three days after his brace in Zesco ‘s 3-2 home win over Al Ahly of Egypt in both sides’ 2016 CAF Champions League Group A opening game in Ndola.

However, Chama was sent off in the 84th minute for elbowing Jubel Sakala.

The win is a massive boost for Zesco who travel to Morocco on Saturday ahead of their June 29 Group A clash against Wydad Casablanca on match-day-two of the CAF Champions League.

Dynamos remain rooted second from bottom after suffering their eighth league defeat of the season on 14 points from 16 games played this season.
