Power Injury Worries Easy, Hichani To Miss Game
Power Dynamos welcome back two players from injury while TP Mazembe will be missing one of their Africa Cup winning players for this weekend’s big clash.
Mazembe and Power face-off this Saturday in a Caf Champions League first round, first leg match at Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe.
Power are relieved with news that striker Felix Nyaende who have been out of action for the last two weeks will be available for Saturdays game.
Nyaende was nursing an ankle injury sustained in a Caf Champions League preliminary round return leg match at home against Japan Actuels of Madagascar whom they beat 8-1 on aggregate to advance to their first round date against Mazembe.
Also available is midfielder Simon Bwalya who limped off against Nchanga Rangers last Saturday in Power’s 3-1Charity Shield final win.
Meanwhile, Mazembe will be without defender Hichani Himoonde who sustained an injury in training back in Lubumbashi.
And Mazembe trained at Garden Park on Thursday afternoon where they attracted a huge crowd from Buchi Township and surrounding areas.
The notorious Buchi boy’s cheered their Zambian stars in the team but also served Mazembe with doses of insults and heckles as they went about their paces at Garden Park.
