Zesco United visit Power  Dynamos on Wednesday at Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe to play a delayed Week 13 fixture.
The Electricity  derby comes just four days after Zesco bounced  back to the top of  the table after a  2-1 home win over Napsa  Stars at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
That  win saw  Zesco reclaim  top spot after Nkana beat  them 1-0 in Ndola on August  16 to briefly end  their week-long command of the 2017 FAZ  Super Division.
Coach Zlatko Krmpotic heads into the match optimistic  after an improved showing  from Zesco  over  the weekend.
“I am now  satisfied  that  Zesco  are now ready to get another three points in  their next game,”  Krmpotic  said.
Most importantly, Krmpotic will be hoping to see Fackson Kapumbu and John Chingandu  fully recharged just three days after the duo played back-to-back games on August 19 for Zambia and a day later against Napsa.
The  return from injury of midfielder Kondwani Mtonga is also a massive lift for  Zesco after he came through without an incident in the win over  Napsa.
But  the spotlight is set again to fall on the Burundi  duo of midfielder Enock Sabamukama and goalkeeper Dieudonne Ntibahezwa who do not  disappoint in Sunday’s  win.
Meanwhile,Zesco currently lead  the table on 44 points  from 22 games with three games in hand.
The five-time champions are one point ahead of 2nd placed Green Buffaloes and are a further three points  in front of 4th placed Power .
And Zesco head into the match with a reputation to keep against Power heading into the Electricity derby.
Power trace their last good derby run against  Zesco to 2014  when they drew 0-0 in Ndola and beat  Zega 2-1  in another late August date  in Kitwe that season.
Since then,  Zesco have won all  their last four league meetings in the  Electricity derby and last season dismantled Power 3-1 at Arthur Davies and 4-0 at home in Ndola.
