Zesco United’s hopes of a 2017 CAF Confederation Cup group stage qualification brightened on Sunday after rallying from two-down to finish 2-2 away in Nigeria to Enugu Rangers.
Chibuzor Madu put the Nigerian champions ahead from the penalty spot in the 24th minute before Osas Okoro added the second in the 46th minute.
But defender David Owino put Zesco back in the race in the 72nd minute to score his second goal so far in the competition.
Striker Patrick Kongolo then made a dream debut when he scored the vital equaliser in the 76th minute.
A 0-0 home draw will suffice for Zesco at home on April 15 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola to see them through to May’s group stage of the competition.
Sundays draw also saw Zesco end their away jinx against Nigerian sides where they had lost on their last two previous visits to Kano Pillars and Warri Wolves.
