The Chipolopolo boys will have to raise the bar when they face Congo Brazzaville in the second of their two back to back fixtures in the Gabon 2017 Africa Cup race.
Congo held Zambia to a 1-all draw on Wednesday in a match many Zambians had banked on a win.
George Lwandamina will not have the easiest of tasks as playing away against a fairly strong opponent that tested Zambia to the hilt on home soil may not be easy.
The two sides are tied on five points with Congo having a better goal difference.
Mpumalanga Black Aces skipper and his partner Winstone Kalengo may be the men to give
Zambia a result with skipper Rainford Kalaba key in weaving play in a free role.
More will be expected of Nathan Sinkala to hold things down in midfield if the team is to record an important away result.
At the there are still lingering question marks on Stephen Kabamba while Stoppilla Sunzu and Adrian Chama will marshal the central defence with Davies Nkausu taking the right back position.
The match will be played at 16:50 hours Zambian time and will be beamed live on ZNBC and pay channel SuperSport.
