FOREST Rangers will be looking to displace Napsa Stars from the third position with a win over Nakambala Leopards in Super Division week seven rescheduled encounter at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium.

Fifth placed Forest have eight points, two behind Napsa while leaders Red Arrows and second placed Zesco United have 13 and 12 points apiece.

The Perry Mutapa coached side are bubbling with confidence after outplaying heavyweights Nkana and Kabwe Warriors in their previous 1-0 and 2-0 home wins respectively and are itching to keep the momentum in this brought-forward encounter.

Forest will rely on their tiki-taka style of play anchored around in-form strikers Conlyde Luchanga, Zikiru Adams and midfielder Tony Kazembe.

Nakambala on the other hand comes into the match buoyed by last Saturday’s first season win over Kabwe Youth Soccer Academy and will target another victory on the road which will instill a lot of hope in the Zeddy Saileti tutored side.

Tanzanian striker Elias Maguri, who netted a brace against KYSA, will lead the quest for three points for the Mazabuka based side.

Nakambala are perched 14th with four points, one above Power Dynamos who are in the relegation Zone.

The match was initially scheduled for October 24.

The other rescheduled match sees Lumwana Radiants hosting Green Eagles in the Northwest.
