Zesco fight back to hold Buffaloes

Zesco United fought from two goals down to draw with Green Buffaloes in a brought forward MTN/FAZ Week six league match played at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.

Green Buffaloes silenced the home side with an 11th minute Brian Mwila goal with Diamond Chikwekwe doubling the lead in the 26th minute.

The hosts were given an opportunity for respite in the 38th minute when referee Derrick Kafuli pointed to the spot after Phelon Sitonya was adjudged to have handled in the box.

However John Ching’andu shot wide from the spot with matters getting out of hand when Zesco coach Zlatko Krmpotic was sent off in the 47th minute.

But Zesco rallied back with Ben Bahn nodding in a Jackson Were cross in the 72nd minute.

David Owino completed the comeback in the 90th minute with Zesco United reaping a point that took them back to the top of the MTN/FAZ Super League.

Zesco is tied with Lumwana Radiants on 11 points but the Ndola side has a healthier goal difference.

The match was brought forward as Zesco United has a Confederation Cup group match on Saturday against Egyptian side Smouha.
