Leaders Red Arrows will fancy their chances of another victory in the MTN Super League when they take on second-bottom Prison Leopards on Saturday.

Arrows have taken 19 points from the last 21 available, championship form, and it would be a major shock were they not able to continue that run.

That is especially so as Leopards are without an away win in their last 17 matches on the road (D8 L9).  Arrows have also won seven (D2) of the last nine meetings between the sides and have not tasted defeat in that time.

Second-placed ZESCO United, who are three points behind the leaders, have a tougher assignment as they go to Green Buffaloes.

The latter may not be having the greatest of seasons, but actually have the best home record of all sides this campaign with seven wins, five draws and no losses. ZESCO have won four of their last five (L1) trips there though.

Third-placed Power Dynamos, who are also defending champions, are away at struggling Kansanshi Dynamos and will seek to close the five-point gap between themselves and Arrows.

Nkana FC moved out of the relegation zone for virtually the first time this season and will be hoping to create further daylight between themselves and the bottom four with a home win against Mufulira Wanderers.

Other matches on Saturday see Kabwe Warriors host Konkola Blades, Zanaco welcome Nkwazi and FC MUZA entertain bottom side Trident, who still only have a single win all season.

There are also two games on Sunday as Mutondo Stars hosts NAPSA Stars and Green Eagles travel to Forest Rangers.
