Zesco arrive in Ndola ahead of crucial Rangers clash

Zesco United have returned from Enugu, Nigeria ahead of their crucial Caf Confederation Cup play-off second leg match with Enugu Rangers at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium on Saturday

Their match with Enugu Rangers is scheduled for 3pm on April 15.

They arrived on Wednesday afternoon through Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe International Airport aboard Ethiopian Airlines at 220pm.

Zlatko Krmpotic's men picked up a 2-2 draw in the first leg played on Sunday and will be hoping to pick up another positive result to reach the competition's group stage. 

Striker Patrick Kongolo, who scored the equaliser at the Nnamdi Azikiwe Stadium, believes that playing the second leg at home will work to Zesco United’s advantage. 

"I missed several good chances which would have made us win in Enugu. I think we have a good chance to win here since we will be playing in familiar surroundings. If the coach gives me a chance to play, I want to score two goals on Saturday. That is my target," said Kongolo. 

Kongolo added that his target was to help Zesco United win trophies this season including the Caf Confederation Cup. 

"I want to score at least thirty goals to help my team win the league and the Caf competition," he said.

The lanky Congolese-born striker scored three league goals including one against his current club while playing for Mufulira Blackpool last season.
