Jesse Were’s ambition of lifting Zambian Super League Golden Boot suffered a major blow after picking an injury in his side's win against Kabwe Warriors.
The on-form Kenyan striker, who notched one goal and an assist during Zesco United's 4-1 win against City of Lusaka last weekend, was stretched off in mid second half after sustaining a knock.
Goal could however, not establish the extent of the injury with Zesco United yet to give any update on the same. Zesco United cruised past Kabwe Warriors 1-0 on Wednesday but it the victors had to pay the prize of losing one of their most valuable asset this campaign.
The win saw Zesco United move top of the Zambian league standing with 62 points, two above second-placed Zanaco.
But it is was Were’s injury blow in the 60th minute that will be a course of concern for Team ya Ziko, who are without mask man, Kanshi Mtonga.
Lazarus Kambole scored Zesco United’s all-important goal late in the first half to help his side take the lead at the summit with a game in hand.
