Zesco United opened a four-point lead on the 2018 FAZ Super Division log on Saturday following a 2-0 away win over beleaguered Nchanga Rangers at Nchanga Stadium in Chingola.
Zesco were in total command against fourth from last Nchanga and could have won the match by at least five goals in the opening half had Jesse Were and Lazarus Kambole been a little more ruthless.
John Chingandu put Zesco ahead in the 3rd minute when he headed in Fackson Kapumbu’s cross while Were struck in the 10th minute before going on to waste two more glorious chances.
Zesco rise to 42 points to open an overnight lead over Green Buffaloes who play on Sunday at home game against Power Dynamos in Lusaka.
