Zambia Superleague side, Zesco United striker Jesse Were is doubtful for Saturday’s CAF Champions League preliminary round second leg tie against Green Mambas due to an injury.
The Kenyan talisman limped off during last Saturday’s 1-0 defeat to Zanaco in a Samuel ‘Zoom’ Ndhlovu Charity Shield final at Woodlands Stadium in Lusaka. Newcomer Saviour Nkonkola came on to replace the Zesco United leading goalscorer in the 69th minute.
Zesco carries a two-goal lead heading into the second leg thanks to the 2-0 win in the first leg. Should Jesse Jackson Were fail to pass a late fitness test, Ugandan striker Umaru Kasumba will be expected to lead the attack.
