Zesco cut down Forest in Ndola derby


Zesco United got some hard fought for revenge over Forest in their Ndola derby on Thursday at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.

The defending champions beat Forest 1-0 to avenge the first leg loss by the same margin at the same venue on May 11.

Zesco battled to victory thanks to a 37th minute goal by defender David Owino.

The win lifts Zesco one place up the table with six games in hand from 5th to 4th on 40 points from 19 matches and are now fifteen points behind leaders Zanaco who have played 24 games.

Zesco are back in action this Sunday when they visit winless and bottom of the log Mufulira Blackpool at John Kachofa Stadium in Mufulira.

Thereafter they head back to camp to prepare for their 2016 CAF Champions League semifinal, first leg fixture at home against Mamelodi Sundowns of South Africa on September 17 at Levy Stadium.
