With Alex Ng’onga failing a fîtness test to a groin injury, Wada Wada has gone for the Green Buffaloes striker.
The 23 year old striker was one of the high scoring Zambian striker last season with 12 goals and helped his club to a third place finish.
With Ng’onga out, Wada Wada’s other attacking options are Martin Phiri and Chanda Mushili.
