Zambia Air Force sponsored side Red Arrows Football Club will this afternoon welcome seven time Zambia Super League champions, Zesco United at in a rescheduled week seven encounter at Nkoloma Stadium.
The Chisi Mbewe drilled side will play host to Zega, with the Airmen boasting two wins on the trot, a winning run that has seen them beat Zanaco 2-1 at Nkoloma Stadium as well as Mufulira Wanderers 3-nil away in Mufulira over the weekend.
Red Arrows Captain Bruce Musakanya and his lads will be looking to break into the top four with a win, having won the league title once in 2004 and will be fancying their chances of playing continental football with race for the top two places still far from being over.
Zesco on the other hand have also managed to pick six points in their last two league encounters and in the process scoring five goals, allowing two goals. A win for the Ndola based side will see them top the table in Stream A of the transitional league.
On a day that marks exactly one year since George Lwandamina who is fondly called ‘Chicken’ by the Zesco fans was appointed for the second time as Zesco United boss after returning from Tanzania where he coached Yanga Football Club, the likes of Lazarous Kambole will be expected to play a pivotal role for Zesco United alongside Jesse Were and John Ching’andu.
The match will kick-off at 15:00Hrs.
