Green Eagles return to league action on Wednesday when they host Green Buffaloes at Independence Stadium in Choma.

Eagles host a fifth placed Buffaloes side that is quietly progressing into the top five after a patchy start to the season with five wins during their current six-match unbeaten run.

Buffaloes have 19 points, nine behind leaders Zesco United and three ahead of their seventh placed hosts Eagles.

A draw will see Buffaloes stay put while a win will see them replace Nkana at number four where they sit on 21 points.

Meanwhile, Eagles may have collected significant 0-0 draws on the road over the last ten days against Nkana and Zesco United but a third successive tie on Wednesday will hit their credibility of another crack at a top four finish this season.

There will also be no mid-season break for Eagles who are playing the first of a fou- match backlog due after exiting the 2019/2020 CAF Champions League
at the pre-group stage in September.

Eagles have two more home games against Kansanshi and Red Arrows over the coming ten days plus an away fixture against Lusaka Dynamos on December 24.
