Zesco United are back to three points behind Red Arrows ,following a 2-1 home win over struggling Kansanshi Dynamos.

It took just seventeen minutes for Zesco to equalise when John Chingandu turned in a pass from Shemmy Mayembe.

Abraham Siankombo was denied a goal in the 38th minute when Kansanshi goalkeeper Philip Sakauta parried his free kick.

defender Solomon Sakala.
