Midfielder Enock Sabamukama will miss another Zesco United date against Kaizer Chiefs.

The influential Burundi international playmaker missed the first leg that Zesco won 3-1 on January 12 at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium due to an injury he sustained in training on the eve of the match.

Also still out is defender David Owino as he continues to work on his rehabilitation to full fitness after one month out due to an injury.

Owino limped off on December 4 in a 3-0 home win over AS Sonidep of Niger in Zesco’s 2018/2019 CAF Champions League preliminary round, final leg tie at Levy Stadium.

But defender Marcel Kalonda is back after serving a one match suspension that has seen Edward Tembo make way for his return.

Coach George Lwandamina has also swapped second choice goalkeepers and summoned Burundi Under 23 minder Dieudonne Ntibahezwa who replaces Samson Banda.

Kalonda and Ntibahezwa are the only changes to the team that beat Chiefs last Sunday.

Meanwhile, Zesco must avoid a 2-0 away defeat to Chiefs on January 19 at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg to advance to the group stage of the 2018/19 CAF Confederation Cup that commences on February 1.

GOALKEEPERS: Jacob Banda, Dieudonne Ntibahezwa

DEFENDERS: Marcel Kalonda, Solomon Sakala, Simon Silwimba, Clement Mwape, Mwila Phiri

MIDFIELDERS: Anthony Akumu, Kondwani Mtonga, Misheck Chaila, John Chingandu, Mwape Mwelwa, Logic Chingandu
