Striker Jesse Were’s 66th minute goal was enough for Zesco United to condemn Nkana to their second defeat in a row at Nkana Stadium in the Week 5 match of the FAZ Super League on Sunday. Last year during the 2017 super league match Zesco had similarly put down Nkana on its knees by 2-0.

Ochaya 3′, Collins Sikombe in the 30th, Conylide Luchanga 46’| M. Phiri 66′ and finaly Chris Mugalu 77′. Consolation goal for Swallows was from W. Mutale from the spot. 

Meanwhile, Nkana will host Buildcon FC at home this Wednesday in the rescheduled Week 2 match.

Were put United in front on 66th minute to make 1-0 and enable Zega extend dominance over the Wusakile side .

This was Zesco’s 5th win over Beston Chambeshi’s side in their last 11 meetings in Wusakile.

The Tenant Chembo tutored side move in to 7th position on 7 points from 3 matches played with 2 games in hand.

Sunday’s defeat has relegated Kalampa to 10th position with 6 points after playing 4 matches.

Zesco travel to Lusaka on Wednesday to take on Lusaka Dynamos in the rescheduled Week 1 fixture.
