The MTN Super League enters week five of action this afternoon with nine time Champions, ZESCO United visiting the Choma Independence Stadium.
The Kawale Boys have been a tricky opponent for the Ndola based outfit having last recorded a win against them back in 2018.
The Kawale Boys are coming from a 2-1 defeat away at Heroes Stadium at the hands of NAPSA Stars while ZESCO United recorded a 2-1 win over Lumwana Radiants.

ZESCO United head coach Numba Mumamba says his team is eying maximum points in Choma, something he has never done under his reign.
The last time ZESCO United won a game in Choma was back in 2016, on 23rd April, a 1-0 victory.
“I must say we are taking this game seriously because we have never collected maximum points whenever we come here. This is the time for us to make sure that we go back with maximum points because I believe we have a team that can give us the points,” he said.
“We have done our preparations. We are here to make sure we get the three points. We have psyched our players to be positive in the way we approach the game. The past results should not determine the outcome of tomorrow’s game.
“The two wins have motivated us. I think we are coming with a lot of confidence. I think what we need is to work hard on the pitch so that we can go back home with three points.”
ZESCO have recorded back to back wins and Numba wants to use the same approach this afternoon to maintain the momentum.
Numba has also confirmed that the team will be without Rodrick Kembo, Chitiya Mususu and Spencer Sautu.
“We have to take the same approach which gave us the six points in the last two games. I think the team exhibited good workmanship which is a good sign. I think we need to pick up where we left off and probably improve on that,” he said.
“Spencer is still recovering, Chitiya sustained a hamstring injury while Kembo pulled his muscle in training.”
Aggrey Chiyangi’s men will be looking to get back to winning ways having suffered a loss last weekend.
The Kawale Boys have won their last two games played at the Independence Stadium this season. They also face a team they have not lost to since 2018.
A win for either side could see them move into the top four or just outside it.
Hosea Silwimba has continued where he left off last season and will be the architect for most if not all the Eagles attacks with Derrick Bulaya providing a target man in the box.
For ZESCO United Keziron Kizito and young Chipyoka Songa will be key in unlocking the Kawale Boys resolute defense.
