Inconsistent Buildcon will host In-form Napsa Stars on Wednesday afternoon in a week nine MTN/FAZ Super League encounter at the Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.
Buildcon has managed just three wins from seven games with two losses and two draws and sits eighth on the log with 11 points while Napsa Stars are third on the log with 14 points.
Both Team Kopala and the Pensioners recorded wins in their respective matches over the weekend, Napsa Stars beat Nkwazi 1-0 while Buildcon edged Lumwana Radiants by a similar scoreline.
THE FREEKICK THREAT
Both Buildcon and Napsa Stars will look to avoid making unnecessary fouls around the 18-yard area. Team Kopala defender Isaac Shamujompa has already notched up two free-kicks so far this season including the only goal of the game in the 1-0 win over Lumwana Radiants over the weekend.
Napsa Stars also have their own free-kick specialists in Bornwell Mwape and Bornwell Silengo who can easily punish Team Kopala from set-pieces.
Abeddy Beramahire, Emmanuel Mwiinde and Kayembe Alidor are expected to lead the attack for Team Kopala who will be without Zambia U23 national team striker Biston Banda.
Muhammed Fathi is expected to name an unchanged side with only one player expected to come in for Dickson Chapa who is serving a suspension having been sent off in the 1-0 win over Nkwazi.
