There were wild celebrations at Shinde Stadium in Mufulira as promotion contenders Mighty Mufulira Wanderers beat Mining Rangers 1-0 on Sunday to go back to the top of the FAZ Division One North table.
Wanderers left it late to score with striker Erick Chibuye registering the vital goal in the 87th minute.
Chibuye finished Ryian Berrington’s cross to awaken the hige crowd in Kantanshi Township.
It was a hard-fought victory for the Manfred Chabinga coached side that moved to 41 points together with Forest Rangers who have an inferior goal difference.
Wanderers failed to take a lead into the break after missing serious chances in the opening 45 minutes.
Regular scorer Brian “Adebayo” Hambungeni had forced a save from Mining keeper Dennis Mano in the 17th minute before his colleague Taonga Bwembya ballooned a free kick from the edge of the box.
This was Mighty’s 12th win of the season with ten matches left to play.
