PSL stars see game time in weekend fixtures
It was a satisfactory weekend for Zambian players in the PSL with most players enjoying game-time while Christopher Katongo, Collins Mbesuma, Joseph Musonda and Kennedey Mweene all enjoyed wins with their clubs.
Mukuka Mulenga and Katongo on Sunday came up on opposite sides of the field when Bloemfontein Celtic hosted Bidvest Wits in a game Wits won via a late lone goal.
Mukuka played in the attacking midfield role and could have found the back of the net when he picked a loose ball in midfield, dashed for the area, side stepped his marker to unleash a ferocious shot which was parried to the cross-bar by M Josephs in the Wits goal.
Mukuka showed flashes of good form with some good vision and runs as he eclipsed his former national team captain who had an unusually quiet game. Katongo was substituted in the 63rd minute while Mulenga lasted 79 minutes.
Davies Nkausu did not make the bench for Celtic.
On Saturday, Mbesuma completed minutes as he continues to enjoy first team action for Mpumalanga Black Aces and this time he came up against country man Bornwell Mwape of Amazulu.
Non of the two Zambian goal poachers found the net on the day though Aces run away as 3 – 1 winners.
Mwape also completed the game for his club which is bottom of the log.
Mweene kept another clean sheet as he helped Sundowns to a 2 – 0 over his former club Free State Stars win which moved them into second position on the log.
Veteran Musonda completed a full game for Polokwane City who beat visiting Chippa United 3 – 1.
Polokwane City are currently in 8th position.
Clifford Mulenga came off the bench for Ajax Cape Town in their 0 – 0 draw against Supersport United.
