League Leaders Green Buffaloes Trot To Sixth Unbeaten Game


Green Buffaloes stayed unbeaten this season following Saturday’s 2-0 away win at Chambishi.

A Patrick Mambwe own-goal in the 16th minute after the Chambishi defenders poorly executed-headed back-pass to goalkeeper Jairos Mulenga handed Buffaloes a one-nil halftime lead.

But Chambishi took the game to Buffaloes who had goalkeeper Fred Silwamba to thank including the woodwork that kept out Chabala Kasanda and Konga Konga’s quick-fire close-range attempts in the 24th minute.

However, Buffaloes striker Friday Samu muted Chambishi in the 54th minute when he punished Mulenga for a poor clearance to slot in the ball on the rebound.

The win saw Buffaloes collect their fifth straight league win since drawing 1-1 in Week 1 with fellow unbeaten side Lusaka Dynamos.

Buffaloes have now opened a five-point lead over Nkwazi who drew 1-1 with fourth placed Forest Rangers in Lusaka.

But third placed Buildcon who are on 10 points would reclaim second spot if they can manage to beat Lusaka Dynamos on Sunday.
