Zambia : Zanaco lose ground in 2018 title race

2017 FAZ Super Division runners-up Zanaco suffered another set-back in the 2018 title race following 3-2 Capital derby home defeat at Sunset Stadium against Lusaka Dynamos.

It was Zanaco’s second successive league defeat after Green Eagles beat those 2-1 away in Choma on June 30.

Just like in the Eagles game, the seven-time champions squandered an early lead after Lokwa Soulymane put them ahead 15th minute.

But Dynamos hit back twice before the break through Cletus Chama and Mwila Nsofwa in the 32nd and 42nd minutes respectively.

Zanaco then earned a fortunate equalizer via an Erick Kabulo own-goal in the 73rd minute but Dynamos put the result beyond doubt whenTardeli Ilunga snatched the winner in the 89th minute.

Mumamba Numba’s side swap places with Kabwe Warriors to 4th and 3rd respectively on 41 and 38 points respectively.

Warriors had a good day at home when they beat Nkwazi 1-0 on the same day at home in Kabwe thanks to 54th minute goal from Bibo Bindu.

The Railwaymen have moved within five points of second placed Green Buffaloes who could only draw 0-0 at home against Red Arrows in Lusaka to move five points behind leaders Zesco United who only play on Wednesday against Buildcon.
