AFTER going nine games without a win in the FAZ Super League, relegation-threatened Sensational Zanaco FC will seek redemption when they host rejuvenated Kansanshi Dynamos in a Week-30 fixture at Sunset Stadium in Lusaka.
The Bankers have endured a tough second round in the Super League and today’s game against Kansanshi is a do or die fixture as they fight to survive relegation.
And after starting his third stint at Zanaco with a loss to Zesco United last weekend, coach Wedson Nyirenda who replaced fired Kelvin Kaindu and Emmanuel Amunike will be hoping that his boys can rise to the occasion to get the crucial win over the Solwezi-based side who held the Bankers to a 1-1 stalemate the last time the two sides mate.
“The preparations went well. We have done all we can and we have gone through all the paces, we have tried to rectify the mistakes that have been occurrying in our defence and also our attack we have tried to sharpen up our attack and we looking forward to getting some goals. The players have done very well they are all fit and we look set to upset the tables against Kansanshi Dynamos,” Nyirenda said.
After getting a walk over win over Buildcon last weekend, Kansanshi will fight to maintain their impressive run of three wins, one draw and one defeat in the last five games.
Meanwhile, league leaders Power Dynamos who are two wins away from scooping the league will face Nchanga Rangers test at Nchanga Stadium in Chingola.
Power dominate the Super League with 55 points, 10 points ahead of second-placed Napsa Stars.
The Mwenya Chipepo drilled Kitwe giants will look to their lethal top man in Andy Boyeli who has proved to be a thorn in the flesh for most Super League teams.
Boyeli inspired Power to a 3-1 win over Chambishi FC last weekend after he scored a brace to propel his goal tally to 16 goals as the league’s top scorer.
At the Levy Mwanwasa Stadium in Ndola, Forest Rangers will seek to recover from last weekend’s defeat to high flying Nkwazi FC when they host Lumwana Radiants in the second fixture of the double header at the same venue that will host the Buildcon FC versus Kabwe Warriors clash.
In other fixtures scheduled for this weekend, defending champions Red Arrows will seek solace when they host “giant Killers” Muza FC who are winless in the last three games where they have recorded two defeats and one draw.
At President Stadium in Kabwe, Prison Leopards will host Nkwazi while Green Buffaloes will seek redemption from last weekend’s 4-1 bashing to Napsa Stars when they host rejuvenated Zesco United.
Tomorrow, Super League action continues with Chambishi facing Napsa Stars in the lunch time kick off at Nkana Stadium where Nkana and Green Eagles will lock horns in the second fixture of the double header.
