Sports Feature Sports Zesco rally to down winless Blackpool

Champions Zesco United on Sunday came from a goal down to trounce Mufulira Blackpool 2-1 in a delayed round 25 match of the FAZ Super Division played at John Kachofa Stadium in Mufullira.

Blackpool took a shocking 1-0 lead into the half time break thanks to a goal from striker Patrick Kongolo.

Kongolo beat keeper Jacob Banda with a header after connecting a Joseph Chewe free kick on 14 minutes.

Blackpool missed a chance to double the lead four minutes later when Hendrix Mumpa shot slightly wide before defender Kalala Tshibanda sent
his long over just over.

Prior to the break Zesco striker Jesse Were had fluffed a great chance by shooting wide from close range after sending another shot just
over.

Were compensated for his first half misses when he benefited from a goalkeeping error to equaliser after Reuben Chisala fumbled his low shot in the 56th minute.

With Blackpool providing little resistance, Zesco United went up 2-1 on 75 minutes when John Ching’andu fired in a fine shot from the edge
of the box to silence the home fans.

Zesco moves to 43 points after playing 20 matches but remain fourth on the table.

Blackpool remain stuck at the bottom of the 18-team table with 9 points from 25 matches played.
