AFTER suffering a 5-4 defeat to BS Stars last weekend, Football Association of Zambia (FAZ) Premier Futsal League outfit Livingstone Pirates will seek redemption when they take on Kitwe Bullets in today’s week-13 fixture at Automotive Indoor Futsal Arena.
Pirates are winless in the last two games where they have struggled to compete and will need a win to redeem their hopes of qualifying for the play offs of the FAZ Premier Futsal League.
Meanwhile, Bullets will seek to complete a double over Pirates after the first round clash ended 9-3 in favor of Bullets.
The Witson Nyirenda tutored Bullets will also seek to bounce back from last week’s painful 1-0 defeat to Kabwe K-Line who will be meeting CSS Petauke today.
K-Line are the favorites having beaten Petauke 5-0 in the first round of the Premier Futsal League which has proven to be a tough league for Petauke who have been consistent contenders for the bottom three positions on the futsal league table.
In the other FAZ premier Futsal League fixtures scheduled for today, Lusaka Avengers will seek revenge when they face defending champions Automotive FC.
Avengers will also seek to bounce back from last week’s defeat to Chipata Boys while Automotive will be fighting to complete a double victory after beating Avengers 7-5 in their earlier meeting.
Automotive are unbeaten and dominate the FAZ Premier Futsal League with 33 points from 11 wins collected from 11 games.
And after gifting CSS Petauke a 5-0 defeat in the first round of the Premier Futsal League, Kabwe K-Line will aim to maintain their perfect run when they take on Petauke in today’s reverse fixture at Automotive Indoor Futsal Arena.
