Zesco last won the league in 2010 while the bankers it was two years ago under late coach Keagan Mumba.

Zanaco took over the summit last Saturday ‘s game when Zesco United went tumbled in Mazabuka 2-0 at the hands of stubborn Nakambala.

The pressure is also on hosts and 11th placed Arrows on 35 points who have a relegation battle to take care of and they need nothing but a home win to ensure their survival.

Zanaco, has an added advantage over Arrows after beating them 2-0 in the first leg at Sunset Stadium in June.

Three-time champions Zesco suffered a setback last weekend away to Nakambala Leopards in Mazabuka where they lost 2-0 to see them stay put in second place into the last day of the season.

The tie favors Zesco who have not lost to Warriors in Ndola since 2005 and have since then picked up five wins and two home draws.

At Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe, third placed Power Dynamos host Nakambala searching for a win to keep their slim hopes of a top two finish alive.

Third placed Power who have 54 points have failed to win in their last three games picking up just one point at Napsa Stars before losing to Nkana at home and Zanaco away.

Defeats for the top two sides could see Power pick up a miracle seventh title with a big win over Nakambala after their title hopes were left for dead at Sunset Stadium in Lusaka last week.

Green Buffaloes are in must win game over relegated Indeni to ensure their fifteen year stay in the top flight continues.

A win for Buffaloes and a loss for Warriors at Zesco will see the Railwaymen demoted.
