The battle for the top slot on the MTN-FAZ super league between Power Dynamos and Zanaco take on a new dimension this afternoon when league leaders Zanaco football club faces tricky Konkola Mine Police at Sunset Stadium in a Week 25 fixture.
Zanaco has no choice but to win the game at all cost to extend the lead against second placed Power Dynamos.
With one point difference, Zanaco has a huge task when they face Konkola Mine Police whose mission is to beat the relegation zone.
Another hot fixture is the one involving Power Dynamos and Choma Green Eagles who have proved to be strong against big teams.
Zanaco coach Aggrey Chiyangi will depend on versatile Rodrick Kabwe, Mathews Macha and Moses Phiri for goals, while Davy Daka who is also the U-20 player will be the man to watch.
Maunga Kabuku, Fackson Kapumbu and Aubrey Funga will be the names Chiyangi will be looking to against Konkola Mine Police for the needed three points at home.
Konkola Mine Police, who last weekend had their coach given marching orders by the referee for misconduct, will have to ensure that the mistakes they made in the Nkana game where they were leading by 2-0 but lost 3-2 will not be repeated.
In their first meeting, Konkola Mine Police lost to Zanaco by 1-0, but this time around they want to delete their past history against the bankers.
And another thrilling game will be Power Dynamos traveling over 300 km south of Lusaka to meet another stubborn side Choma Green Eagles at Independence Satdium.
Choma Green Eagles has proved to be difficult to beat at home, and Power will have to fight for that top place they want to hold.
Tenant Chilumba knows what is at stake in this game, especially that there is a point difference between them and Zanaco.
With Power coming from a 7-1 bashing of National Assembly last week, the Chilumba boys are a better side to take the day.
Relegation threatened Roan United will be at Nkana hosting Kabwe Warriors all the way from Kabwe.
Stylish Roan United are using Nkana Stadium because of the ban by FAZ for violent conduct by their soccer fans.
Roan seem not ready to drop points any further, while Maginificent Kabwe Warriors need a win to clear doubts about their stay in the elite league.
Defending league champions Nkana football club who are struggling to win games, will be hosting Nchanga Rangers who are in great form this season.
Nkana coach Beston Chambeshi will have to prove his worth staying at the club by winning the game especially that Nkana have been struggling to record positive results to keep them top of the league.
Losing this game will mean that Nkana should stop contemplating representing the country in both the CAF champions league and Cofenderations Cup next season.
The battle will rest on the shoulders of Ronald Sate State Kampamba, Donashano Malama, Kelvin Mubanga, Shadreck Musonda, Christopher Munthali and Simon Bwalya for the needed goals and strength of the team.
