Kabwe Warriors score late to hold Zesco United

Kabwe Warriors scored an injury time penalty against Zesco United to rescue a point and maintain their unbeaten run as the two teams played out to a 2 – 2 draw at the Godfrey Ucar Chitalu stadium in Kabwe.

The Zesco were fresh from a disappointing 1 – 1 draw aginst Al Hilal of Sudan in the CAF Confederation Cup on Sunday evening and coach George Lwandamina made nine changes to the starting eleven with only Clement Mwape maintained in the team.

It was the hosts who went ahead in the 28th minute through Emmanuel Okutu who benefited from a Zechariah Chilongoshi assist.

Rahim Osumanu leveled for the visitors at the death of the first half when he finished off a Solomon Sakala assist.

Zesco took the lead 3 minutes after the restart and this time it was veteran striker Winstone Kalengo on target as he scored his first of the season.

Zesco were looking good to claim maximum points but they conceded a penalty in injury time which Patrick Kasunga converted for the equalizer.

The result sees Zesco leap into second position level on points with third placed Lusaka Dynamos. Zesco have a congested a fixture and will fly out to Sudan for the CAF game against Al Hilal.

With a third consecutive draw, Warriors are in 4th position on 7 points.

    What a good result for Warriors though maximum points should have been better for them the fact that they were playing at home

    This is quite confusing to follw:

    “It was the visitors who went ahead in the 28th minute through Emmanuel Okutu who benefited from a Zechariah Chilongoshi assist. Then Rahim Osumanu leveled for the visitors with at the death of the first half when he finished off a Solomon Sakala assist” who were who?

    This also needs a bit of editing:

    ‘The result sees ZESCO leap into second position level on points with third placed Lusaka Dynamos.’

    Congratulations to my Team Kabwe Warriors. So far so good. Can the coach tell the players that one win is better than 2 draws and only as good as 3 draws which is a waste of games. The sooner they change those draws into wins the better.

    Ikesa kosa kuma last uku tuleya and from time imemorial, Warriors is a team that always struggles in the second half of the season.
