Red Arrows Seek to Close Gap on Leaders Power Dynamos

Share

With the top-two Power Dynamos and Forest Rangers only in action on Sunday, defending champions Red Arrows have an opportunity to gain a psychological edge and move within five points of the leaders.

Arrows have been playing catch-up for most of the 2022/2023 season and are currently at number five with 39 points while Power leads on 47 points with nine matches left to play.

The defending FAZ Super League champions are on the road to Chingola to play promoted Nchanga Rangers who are just above the bottom four relegation zone at number 14.

Arrows are currently on a six-match winning run that they capped last weekend with a 5-1 hammering of fourth-from-bottom Chambishi.

And Arrows will be hoping to complete a double over Nchanga whom they beat 3-1 in the first leg in Lusaka on October 22.

Arrows also welcome back coach Chisi Mbewe who has just returned from Egypt where he led the Zambia U20 to an unsuccessful campaign at the 2023 U20 AFCON.

Zambia made a group stage exit with a draw from three games.

Meanwhile, 2021/2022 champions Zesco United are also away and in Solewzi to play 13th-placed Kansanshi Dynamos.

The match comes after 8th placed Zesco’s eight-match unbeaten run was ended last weekend by high-flying promoted club FC MUZA who sits at number four on the log.

Zesco lost 1-0 away in that match played in Mazabuka.
