Eastern Province Provincial Division enters week 10 with 9 mouth-watering fixtures

Eastern Province will this weekend particularly Sunday come to a standstill with football scenes taking center stage as the MTN/FAZ Provincial Division One enters week 10 with 9 fixtures expected to grace the occasion.

League leaders Smiling Kids Academy who are fresh from a huge 5-0 win over Prison Leopards in a week 9 fixture and are on 3 points with best goal difference so far will travel to Gondar Barracks the home of Panza FC who also have 3 points after picking up a surprise 3-1 win in Petauke where teams have gone for years without a win.

Panza being at home look like will have an edge over Smiling kids but football being what is it a shocker can not be ruled out.

Police Bullets of Chipata police camp who have a point in the league following a barren draw away in Sinda will welcome wounded Petauke United at Hillside grounds in Chipata. Petauke united who is dubbed the kum’mawa powerhouse received a surprise but heavy 3-1 beating from the soldiers at home and may want to pour their anger on the police officers but they need to be warry of the threats the officers of Chipata pose. A draw will be a fair result for the two teams.

The Kanele boys, Lundazi United will play host to police officers of sinda who are Sinda United at Lundazi showgrounds. Lundazi united who are bad travelers as they got slapped heavily by Katete United at Omelo Mumba grounds in Katete with a 3 nil defeat will be looking to use the home ground advantage to punish Sinda United who has one point in the league following a barren draw at home with police bullets. A win for Lundazi United is the most likely result in this encounter but anything is possible.

At Namuseche Prison of Chipata, Prison Leopards Chipata will hope to sentence Nyamphande Kumawa with a hard labour ruling for trespassing in the prison premises.

Following a heavy 5-0 defeat to young but enterprising Smiling kids, prison leopards will hope to redeem themselves from that embarrassing defeat when they host Nyamphande Kumawa of Petauke district who also lost at home to young Nkwazi of Petauke in what was a local derby.A difficult encounter to predict.

Nyimba United who has a catchy display of football in the province will host the municipals of Katete who are Katete United who has been on the rise as the powerhouse of the Katete district.

Nyimba United who is participating for the first time in the league recorded a 2 nil win away to other newcomers of the league who are Chadiza Police Rangers. Katete United posted a 3 nil win against Lundazi united.

Katete united is likely to get the better of the two if they will use well the experience as they are regular campaigners in the league but the solid defense of Nyimba United may provide a difficult task to Katete united. A win for either team is very much a reality at Nyimba Grounds.

Young Nkwazi of Petauke district who have dubbed the stubborn side as they tend to beat big teams will welcome the Ngoni warriors of chief Mpezeni of Ephendukeni palace from feni. Young Nkwazi who picked a win away to Nyamphande Kumawa is expected to have a smooth walk in the pack as they will host no venom and less of warriors Real Mpezeni FC who lost at home 2 nil to visiting Chadiza United.

But with nothing to lose, Real Mpezeni FC may give Young Nkwazi a run for their money and provide formidable opposition.

Zesco Chipata FC who are fresh from being crowned champions of a k130,000 rich festive tournament in the province will welcome Chipata city council FC. This one is expected to go to the wire, it is the game of the week as it is a local derby.

Zesco Chipata FC who have made no made clear their intentions to play in the second-tier FAZ/EDEN national league next season played to a 2 all draw with former second-tier FAZ league side who are Katete Rangers away in Katete while Chipata city council FC walloped St Francis FC of Francis mission hospital of Katete district.

Zesco Chipata having beaten Chipata city council a month ago in the festive tournament plus the quality and depth their squad boast are the favorites to carry the bragging rights of the Chipata district.

Chadiza United of Chadiza district will welcome Katete Rangers. Both teams are called powerhouses of their respective districts. Chadiza who picked up a 2 nil win away to Real Mpezeni in Feni of Chipata district will hope that they don’t succumb to another defeat at the hands of Katete Rangers who drew at home with Zesco Chipata 2 all.

With the experience of Katete Rangers, they are likely to get better results than the two but the confidence of Chadiza united will provide a good but difficult match for the visitors. Football being what it is, any result in this match should be expected.

St Francis FC of katete will welcome the week 10 fixture with two hands when they host not so strong Chadiza police Fc at st Francis grounds. An outright win for St Francis is the most likely result but they have to work hard for it.
