Red Arrows will return to action on Friday, 31 December, when they take on Zanaco in the Zambian Super League.
The match with Zanaco was scheduled to be played earlier in the season, but it had to be postponed. The FA decided to re-schedule the game for New Year’s Eve, which Red Arrows will most likely welcome as they are in red hot form now.
Arrows are currently on a five-game winning streak in the ZSL and are in fifth place on the log with 26 points. The game on Friday will serve as a catch-up match as the Arrows have two games in hand. At the moment they are four points behind the current log leaders Green Buffaloes who have 30 points, so should they be able to grab wins from the two games, Arrows will move to the log leaders.
Goals from Ricky Banda and an own goal from Zimbabwe midfielder Thabani Kamusoko gave Arrows a 2-1 victory over defending champions Zesco in their last match.
The win highlighted the teams’ credentials and made the league, fans, and media notice the potential in the team. Arrows management and coaching staff have been building a team that will be able to challenge for top honours, and optimism is high within the Arrows camp. The players are playing with confidence, and believe they can achieve something special. All they have to do now is make sure that their potential is realized.
Arrows have performed impressively this season with seven wins, five draws and three losses so far. They have laid a good foundation for the second half of the season, and if they keep their current form in 2022, they will be up there with title challengers.
Friday’s encounter with Zanaco is another important fixture for Arrows. It will test their mettle as Zanaco is one of Zambia’s big teams. Zanaco does struggle to get goals at home, and they have only scored more than two goals once this season.
Arrows will have to keep their discipline and shape when approaching the match but should be confident of their performance. A smash and grabs win is on the cards should Arrows defend well; they can get a 1-0 victory.
