Zesco United regain six point lead

Sports Zesco United regain six point lead

Zesco United race to retain the FAZ Super Division title has regained momentum following a 2-1 away win at Kabwe Youth Soccer Academy on Sunday at Godfrey ‘Ucar’ Chitalu Stadium in Kabwe.

The victory lifts Zesco to 70 points with six games left to play and they are now six points ahead of second placed Green Buffaloes.

But Zesco had to rally to collect the three points after third from bottom KYSA took a 1-0 halftime lead through Ian Sililo in the 42nd minute.

John Chingandu and Maybin Kalengo scored for Zesco in the 47th and 57th minutes receptively to see the six-time champions stay unbeaten in their last three games and collect their second successive league win.

Meanwhile, the gap has grown again thanks to second placed Green Buffaloes stuttering form in their last three games after they drew 1-1 at home in Lusaka with demotion threatened Lumwana Radiants.

Aubrey Masubuko put Lumwana ahead in the 12th minute but Friday Samu handed Buffaloes their second straight draw in the 17th minute to see the number two side collect two points from the last three matches.

And the draw did little for Lumwana’s cause who dropped not the relegation zone and exchanged places with Napsa Stars who won 2-0 away at last placed New Monze Swallows.

Napsa rise from 17th to 15th place to 32 points, one more than Lumwana who have replaced them in the top part of the bottom four relegation zone .
