The former Tusker striker, who was voted the best player for the month of June last week, took his league tally for the season to seven goals with a 74th minute strike against ailing Mufurila Wanderers.
Dave Daka had scored the opener for the Team ya Ziko before Jesse Were made it 2-0 in the match played at Shinde. The victory at Shinde was sweet revenge for the 1-0 defeat Zesco United sustained at the same venue in their last visit on November 20.
Mathews Macha scored for third from bottom Wanderers in the 80th minute as the 'Mighty' suffered their second straight loss in the league. Zesco United are now sitting 7th on the league table with 29 points from 15 games with another four matches in hand.
They are seven points behind leaders Napsa Stars, who drew 1-1 at home with Lusaka Dynamos.
