Zesco United roared to a 3-0 home win over Zanaco on Saturday to open a five point lead at the top of the 2018 FAZ Super Division log.

Enock Sabamukumana, Jesse Were and Lazarus Kambole struck in the 4th, 57th and 90th minutes respectively to extend Zesco’s unbeaten run in the league to fourteen successive games.

Zesco have 61 points from 25 games with a match in hand while second placed Green Buffaloes are only in action on Sunday at the same venue away to Forest Rangers.

Zanaco stay 6th on 44 points despite suffering their third straight league loss.

And in the lunchtime kick off at the same venue, Buildcon collected their debut win over Kabwe Warriors after a 1-0 home win thanks to Brian Mwila goal.

In Choma, Green Eagles enhanced their 2019 continental dreams when they beat Kitwe United 3-2.

Anos Tembo put Eagles ahead in the 18th minute but United ensured they went into halftime on equal terms when Robin Siame equalized in the 33rd minute.

Moses Lolozi then put United in the lead in the 57th minute and that is how things stayed until the last ten minutes of the match.

Joseph Mwandilila restored parity in the 86th minute before Tapson Kaseba completed Eagles comeback in the 89th minute.

Eagles have 50 points as the chase they first top four finish since making their top-flight entry in 2008.

They are four points ahead of fourth placed Nkana who could only draw 1-1 at home against third from bottom Naspa Stars.
Walter Bwalya failed to put Nkana ahead in the 6th minute from the spot when goalkeeper Rabson Muchelenganga saved his penalty.

But Bwalya redeemed himself in the 27th minute although Nkana’s lead lasted until the 43rd minute when Luka Lungu equalized for the struggling Lusaka club.
