Nkana thump Power to retake league lead
Nkana have returned to the top of the Faz Super Division table after an expected win over Power Dynamos in their big Kitwe derby.
The 11-time champions beat their struggling archrivals 2-0 at Nkana Stadium in Wusakile to take a one-point lead at the summit of the table.
Festus Mbewe put Nkana ahead in the 5th minute before Kelvin Mubanga added the final goal in the 38th minute.
Power had a chance to reduce the deficit in the 76th minute via a penalty after Graven Chitalu was brought down in the box.
However, Maybin Chishimba elected to miss and shortly thereafter Nkana were also reduced to 10-men after defender Donashano Malama was sent off for a second bookable offence.
Nkana rise to 32 points, one more than Zesco United who finished scoreless away at Zanaco at Sunset Stadium in Lusaka.
