There was no change at the top of the MTN Super League on Sunday as the top two teams were held to 0-0 draws.

Leaders Red Arrows played to a goalless draw with Green Buffaloes and second-placed Zesco United also recorded a goalless draw at home to struggling Mutondo Stars.

It means Arrows maintain their commanding 10-point lead at the top of the table, and with just five rounds left to play in the season, seem odds-on to win a second title in three years and a third in their history.

Buffaloes stay in 10th place and Stars move two points clear of the relegation zone.

In other matches on Sunday, fourth-placed FC Muza were stunned 2-0 at struggling Konkola Blades to move three points clear of the drop zone.

Victor Mubanga and Francis Mubanga netted for Blades early in the second half.

Prison Leopards and Trident FC played to a 1-1 draw in the battle of the bottom two teams, a result that really helps neither.

Junior Zulu opened the scoring for Leopards, but Fred Mwiche equalised for basement boys Trident.

Green Eagles and Kabwe Warriors also played to a 1-1 draw, as did Napsa Stars and Mufulira Wanderers.

Finally, Kansanshi Dynamos came from behind to beat Zanaco 2-1. The latter took an early lead through Tafadzwa Rusike, but Rodgers Lukonde equalised and Dave Daka netted the winner via the penalty spot in the second half.
