Zanaco, Nkana and Power held at home

There were no changes to the top six positions on the MTN FAZ Super League standings after five draws and three wins were recorded in matches played in Week 33 on Saturday.

Leaders Zanaco, Nkana in second and fourth placed Power Dynamos recorded home draws against less fancied opposition while the other two draws involved teams in the bottom half of the standings.

There were wins for Green Buffaloes, Kabwe Warriors and Nchanga Rangers.

With third placed Zesco United not in action until Sunday when they face Mufulira Wanderers at Shinde Stadium, Power Dynamos had a chance to reclaim third position if only for 24 hours but they failed to break down a resolute Lumwana Radiants defence for their match played at Nkana Stadium to end goalless.

The result put the Ndeke-based side level on 57 points with Zesco United but their position on the table remained unchanged due to an inferior goal difference.

Leaders Zanaco were also held at home to a 1-1 draw by Green Eagles which meant that seconded placed Nkana would have gone to the top of the standings had they won their match but they gave away a 12th minute lead to draw 1-1 at home to Red Arrows.

Green Buffaloes and Kabwe Warriors started the day in fifth and sixth respectively and their positions remained unchanged despite both of them recording victories in their respective matches in the double header played at the Independence Stadium.

Green Buffaloes left it late to defeat Forest Rangers 1-0 thanks to a goal by Happy Kaunda while Jacob Phiri and Joseph Chanda bagged a brace apiece in Kabwe Warriors' 4-0 thrashing of Lusaka Tigers.

Lusaka Dynamos and Nkwazi had a man each sent off as they played out a six goal thriller at the Sunset Stadium.

Shadreck Mayembe of Lusaka Dynamos was sent off on the hour mark with his side leading 2-1 while Nkwazi had Edward Mwamba was sent off in the 86th minute with the scores tied at 2-2. Nkwazi made it 3-2 in the 88th minute but Dynamos fought back to equalise in the fourth minute of additional time.

Luka Chamanga, Kennedy Musonda and Emmanuel Habasimbi scored for Dynamos while it was Jeff Banda, Kalaba Chikwanda and Erick Chomba who got their names on the score sheet for Nkwazi.

In Mazabuka, resilient Nakambala Leopards came back twice to draw 2-2 with Napsa Stars. Collins Sikombe had given the visitors a half time lead but Junior Zulu equalised for the hosts before Enock Mwepu blasted home to restore the lead for the visitors. Wilmore Hatembo who had replaced Signs Chibambo restored parity at the death.

And Nchanga Rangers, relegated via a Disciplinary Committee decision a fortnight ago, made a strong case for themselves ahead of their appeal hearing by defeating hapless Mufulira Blackpool 2-0 to move from 14th to 11th position with 39 points thanks to goals by Kabeya Mulume and Clement Mwape.
