Jesse Were scored his third goal of the season in Zesco United’s 3-0 victory over Lumwana Radiant to shoot the reigning Zambian champion to the summit.
Were scored Zesco United’s second goal after he was fed by Lazarus Kambole mid-second half, to double the victors’ advantage.
The win saw Zesco United move jointly top with Green Buffaloes and Power Dynamos all on 16 points.
The victory was a consolation of sort to Zesco who went down 201 to Forest Rangers two weeks ago.
Midfielder Anthony Akumu and defender David Odhiambo were part of the victorious squad that joined forces as Zesco United prepare to defend their throne.
