Newly promoted side, Mighty Mufulira Wanderers, returned to the FAZ MTN Super League by registering a shock win over Green Buffaloes.
Wanderers capitalised on home ground advantage to send the Shinde Stadium faithful into a frenzy courtesy of a Maxwell Mabenga volley in the 71st minute in a match played on Sunday.
It was a memorable three points that ensured the most successful Zambian club in history start their campaign in the top flight on a winning note.
In the other Sunday fixture, Ndola outfit, Forest Rangers recorded a slender 1-nil win over Kabwe Warriors.
A 70th minute Lazarous Chishimba goal at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium was enough to settle the matter.
Champions Power Dynamos and FC MUZA were not in action owing to their continental obligations this past weekend.
