Zesco face Nkwazi in grudge match

ZESCO Football Supporters celebrating

Zesco United target revenge this Saturday when they visit Nkwazi at Edwin Emboela Stadium in Lusaka.

Promoted Nkwazi ended the defending FAZ Super League champions unbeaten start to the 2015 season on May 9 when they defeat them 2-1 away at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.



That defeat was one of two Zesco has suffered so far this season after 22 rounds of matches played by the league leaders with eight matches left to play before the 2015 title is decided.

Zesco head into the match without coach George Lwandamina who will be in charge of Zambia this Sunday who will also be away in Nairobi to play Kenya in a 2017 Africa Cup qualifier.



His assistant Tenant Chembo has been left in charge to ensure Zesco maintain their healthy seven point leader at the summit where they currently sit on 52 points.

Sixth placed Nkwazi head into the match on the back of two successive 1-0 defeats against struggling 11th placed Nchanga Rangers and bottom of the table National Assembly.

Another defeat will see Nkwazi drop out of the top eight after a bright start to the season that saw them hover in 4th position until last weekend’s away defeat at Nchanga.
