AFTER being on a festive season break, The Premier Futsal League (PFL) Cup returns to action this weekend with giants Lusaka Automotive FC seeking to claim top position in group A when they take on Lilanda Bullets at Automotive Indoor Futsal Arena in Lusaka.
Automotive are second in group A with three points and a win over Bullets will propel them to six points, on par with Kafue Saints who are on bye this weekend.
The fixture against Automotive presents Bullets a chance to get their first win in the PFL Cup after losing their first two games in the competition.
In another Group A fixture, Christian Academy’s search for a first win in the PFL Cup continues today when they face Siavonga Beetles.
Christians are placed bottom in Group A and a win over Beetles will propel them to three points.
Meanwhile, Group B action will see struggling Veterans FC taking on BS Stars while unbeaten Pioneer Avengers will face Kabwe K-line.
Third placed Livingstone Pirates are on by this weekend and will wait for next weekend for a chance to claim Group B leadership.
On Sunday, PFL Cup action will see group C leaders Chipata Boys being on bye as Bill FC and Isoka host CSS Petauke and DS Academy respectively.
DS Isoka and CSS Petaukke are on three points and wins on Sunday will propel them to six points.
In group D table toppers Zanaco will seek to protect their unbeaten record when they take on second placed Kitwe Bullets while Tamanga Joldan will be in action against struggling Efford Chabala who are still searching for their first win in the PFL Cup.
