Zesco, SuperSport share spoils

Zesco United and Super Sport United still have all to play for after they played out to a goalless draw in the their CAF Confederation Cup quarter-final first leg at the Lucas Moripe Stadium in Pretoria.

Either side had a goal wrongly disallowed inside the opening fifteen minutes, with Maybin Kalengo’s strike ruled out for offside on eleven minutes while Grobler had his goal ruled out for a handball incident two minutes later.

Television replays showed that Kalengo was kept on side by Thuso Phala while Grobler was wrongly adjudged to have used his arm when controlling a cross inside the boss.

After a goalless first half, Zesco United were unlucky not to break the deadlock after Maybin Kalengo blasted his close range effort over and wide two minutes after the restart.

A speculative effort  from range by Dauti Musekwa was on target three minutes later but Super Sport goalkeeper Ronwen Williams was alert to keep it out.

The hosts had a good chance thirteen minutes from time but Reneiliwe Letsholonyane shot wide after the visitors failed to clear a corner. At the other end John Ching’andu saw his dipping free kick tipped over and behind for a corner on 79 minutes.

The result keeps both sides in contention, leaving all to play for in a week’s time when they meet in the second leg in Ndola.

SuperSport XI: Williams, Kekana, Daniels, Gould, Modiba, Letsholonyane, Furman, Phala, Mnyamane, Grobler, Brockie.
Zesco United XI: Jacob Banda, Simon Silwimba, Fackson Kapumbu, David Owino Odhiambo, Dauti Musekwa, Misheck Chaila, Kondwani Mtonga, John Chingandu, Dave Daka, Jesse Were (Lazarous Kambole), Maybin Kalengo (Davies Kasirye)

    Didn’t expect anything other result other than a draw though a scoring draw would have been better because now the advantage is with Supersport, they don’t have to win for them to qualify while Zesco needs an outright win for them to progress
