While the Zambia Super League remains suspended due to the Coronavirus outbreak, Futaa looks at how Forest Rangers became the best team in the country after 24 games.
Though Rangers have a narrow log lead of just one point over NAPSA Stars, the Ndola-based club have a game in hand that could stretch the lead to four points.
Zanaco, placed below in 10th position with three games in hand, do not pose a scary threat as winning all three of its games in hand would only propel the Bankers to four or fifth spot.
But how has Fole Malembe deservedly earned the summit position as title favourites this season?
Well, out of 24 games, Terry Mutapa’s side has the least number of losses with four defeats (only Green Eagles have the same record). While Rangers have drawn seven games from 24, a wonderful 13 games have been W’s.
Additionally, the league leaders have scored 30 goals and conceded 17 times in 24 games - including seven clean sheets.
Will the pride of Ndola go all the win to be crowned champions of Zambia for the first time in the club's history?
