Striker Gampani Lungu marked his return from a lengthy injury spell on Wednesday night with his first league goal of the season in SuperSport United’s 2-0 away Tshwane derby win over defending South Africa PSL champions Mamelodi Sundowns.

The striker came on the 65th minute with SuperSport enjoying a 1-0 first half lead.

Lungu sealed the win in the 79th minute when he beat compatriot and his Chipolopolo captain Kennedy Mweene who was in goals for Sundowns.

However, Lungu’s team mate, defender Billy Mutale, was not in the travelling party.

The result sees fourth placed SuperSport move within a point of third placed Sundowns on 43 and 44 points and from 26 and 25 games played respectively.

Orlando Pirates lead the log on 50 points from 27 matches played and three games left.

Meanwhile, Lungu’s return to action is good news for the Zambia Under-23 bench after he missed the 2019 U23 AFCON second round qualifier in March against Malawi due to injury .

But his return is a boost ahead of June’s final round qualifiers against Congo Brazzaville.
