John Chingandu scored a brace on Saturday night in Ndola to propel Zesco United to the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup group stage.

Zesco beat Enugu Rangers of Nigeria 3-0 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium to advance to next month’s league round of the competition 5-2 on aggregate.

Visitors Enugu came straight off the plane to the stadium after landing at 14h20 ahead of the games kickoff at 17h30.

The Nigerians suffered a 24 hour delay in their arrival due to a player boycott back home on Thursday at Enugu Airport.

Rangers’ players refused to board the plane demanding to be paid their dues owed to them from February.

Meanwhile, jet-lagged Rangers found themselves 2-0 down heading into the break after starting on a threatening note before fading as the match approached the opening 30 minutes.

Chingandu struck first in the 24th minute and completed his brace in the 38th minute.

Jesse Were then added the final goal in the 62nd minute to send Zesco to their second successive continental group stage appearance following their semifinal success in the 2016 CAF Champions League.
