Defender David Owino believes  Saturday’s big clash against Zanaco will be  the best  test  for  Zesco  United ahead on next weekend 2017 CAF Confederation Cup  quarterfinal away date against SuperSport United in Pretoria.
Zesco visit the  defending  FAZ  Super League champions in a Week 27 league match at National Heroes Stadium in Lusaka.
Fourth placed and  2016 runners-up Zesco are just one point behind Zanaco heading into  their last league engagement before heading to South Africa at  the end of the week.
“Zanaco  is the best game to gauge  ourselves,”  Owino  said.
“If  you look at their game,it is almost similar to  that of SuperSport  United….too much  wing play and counter-attacking football.
“They are tough opposition more so when  they are playing in their backyard.”
Zesco and Zanaco drew  0-0  in the  first leg meeting  at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola on May  28.
“For sure for is not going to be a walk in the park but as Zesco, we are and up  to the challenge so  as to achieve our goals of this  year which is to win the trophy.”
Zesco play  Supersport  in their first leg meeting on September  16 in a 19h 00 kickoff at Lucas Moripe Stadium  in Pretoria.
The final leg is set for September 23  at Levy Stadium.
