Green Eagles on Friday have moved from second to first in Pool B of the 2019 FAZ Super Division after toppling hosts Buildcon 1-0 to exchange places on the log at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
Eagles move one point clear at the top in Pool B on 24 points after relegating Buildcon to the number two spot after twelve games played this season.
Tapson Kaseba scored the all-important goal in the 57th minute when he headed in a searching ball from defender Warren Kunda to net his fourth of the 2019 campaign.
Kaseba’s goal came a minute after Buildcon striker Kingsley Kangwa saw his shot come off the woodwork.
Lazarus Phiri too hit the beam at the opposite end in the 63rd minute as they eventually left with the three points and ended Buildcon four-match winning run.
Eagles stay on the Copperbelt for another five days to play Nkana in a delayed Week Six fixture on April 24 in Kitwe.
Meanwhile, in the Good Friday Levy Stadium doubleheader lunchtime kickoff, Forest Rangers rose from fourth to third for at least 24 hours in Pool B following a 3-2 home win over struggling debutants Circuit City.
Laurent Muma, Adams Zikiru and Austin Muwowo scored for Forest in the 25th, 49th and 80th minutes respectively.
Circuit City goals came from Augustine Maozeka in the 28th minute and a Biston Banda penalty in the 88th minute.
Nkwazi, who have 20 points, will reclaim third place on Saturday if they beat bottom placed FC MUZA away in Mazabuka.
