SUN SPORTS writes
ZANACO FC on Saturday returned to the top of the FAZ Super Division log following an emphatic 3-1 away win over struggling promoted side Indeni at Indeni Sports Complex in Ndola.
The Bankers victory also saw them secure their straight league win and have gone a point clear of second placed Zesco United who briefly replaced them at the top last Wednesday after a 2-1 home win over Power Dynamos.
Zanaco took a 3-0 lead well into the last twenty minutes of the match after Roger Kola fired a brace in the 30th and 61st minutes before Abraham Siankombo added the last goal in the 68th minute.
Tranquilin Mwepu scored Indeni’s consolation goal in the 71st minute as the Ndola side.
Indeni sit on the relegation trap door at number 15 and are now winless in ten games in which they have suffered four losses since defeating Nkana 2-0 at home on December 9.
In Kabwe, Prison Leopards jumped from sixth to third following a 1-0 home win over bottom of the log and winless Kitwe United.
David Obashi’s 33rd minute goal lifted Prison on 29 points from eighteen games.
But fifth placed Lusaka Dynamos, who have 27 points, can displace them this Sunday with a home win over Buildcon.
Meanwhile, veteran striker James Chamanga inspired Red Arrows to a 3-0 win over Green Buffaloes at Nkoloma Stadium in Lusaka.
The former Chipolopolo striker scored a brace in eight minutes before Alidor Kayambe made the game beyond reach for Buffaloes who were 3-0 down on 32 minutes.
Chamanga opened the scores at Nkoloma Stadium 13 minutes after kick off before completing his brace in the 21st minute to hand Buffaloes their sixth defeat of the season.
The win over their city rivals pushed Arrows to 23 points, six points behind Prison Leopards who claimed third position after beating Kitwe United 1-0 thanks to David Obashi’s first half goal.
Nkwazi and Radiants were involved in goalless draws while Green Eagles were held to a 2-2 draw by Kabwe Warriors.
Fourth placed Forest Rangers, on 28 points, and Zesco went without matches because opponents Nkana and Napsa Stars respectively had CAF Confederation Cup engagements.
