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.
