Zanaco FC yesterday arrived in Swaziland ahead of the crucial CAF Champions league encounter against Mbabane.Unfortunately the Bankers were given a sub-standard hotel in Mbabane and have since rejected the Sibane Lodge they were given as being below CAF standards.

According to a local on line Newspaper, The bankers who carry a slender 3 – 2 will be buoyed by their impressive 4 – 2 win over Napsa Stars in the season opening ‘Samuel Njovu’ Charity shield match as they will look to build on their potent goal scoring prowess.

Keagan Mumba will be banking on new recruit Rodrick Kabwe to continue his great form which has seen him score three goals in two games with 4 assists.

Meanwhile, Power Dynamos this morning left for Angola on a chartered plane without their number one goalkeeper Joshua Titima who has been ruled out due to injury.

Assistant Power Dynamos trainer confirmed the development.

“Joshua suffered a swollen knee when we played Recreativo in the first leg. He is feeling much better but he hasn’t recovered fully. We have picked players who are 100 per cent fit because we want to go and deliver in Angola,” he said.

The 2012 AFCON gold medalist suffered a knee injury in the game in the first leg of the CAF confederations cup match against Caala de Recreativo.

Titima joins defender Govender Simwala on the list of key players on the list of key players who will miss the encounter.
