Zesco earn hard fought point against Smouha in Egypt
Zesco United picked a hard fought point away in Egypt against Smouha when the two teams played to a 1 – 1 draw.
An 84th minute shot by Jesse Were was defeated into the net but Diawara converted from the spot in the 90th minute.
The Ndola side went into the fixture under pressure after being poor on the road.
They would have been punished in this fixture as they did not do much going forward and their only shot on target in the match was the deflected shot which went in for the opener.
The draw sees the 2016 CAF Champions League semi finalists move into second position and level on points with leaders Al Hilal Obayed from Sudan who will be in action on Saturday against Recreativo do Libolo.
Zesco United will then host Al Hilal Obayed on match day 6 in a win or burst fixture.
