Nkana thump Power to retake league lead

Time Posted: July 3, 2013 6:08 pm

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.

    As usual LT reporters who hate Nkana just can’t admit that Nkana is good and the loss to ZESCO was just a slip

    Why do you say AFTER AN EXPECTED WIN as if we were playing a bottom of the league table. You now want to paint the picture that Power Dynamos is useless, LT this is very unfair , you have to be objective. You don’t have to become the ZWD of sports please.

    Nkana played well and don’t take that away from the team.

    Good win for Nkana. As a neutral i still believe that despite the draw at Zanaco, Zesco are playing some exciting football and are far better than Nkana

    @ Rod, Zesco beat us at their home ground, now wait till they come pacilata for you to conclude that Zesco is better than Kalampa. Otherwise U will prove that its the other way round and that Kalampa is here for the 12th title.

      Yaba i almost forgot, that we dealing with the devils eh stylo yenu iyo yine.. This is exactly what i meant when i commented on the Barner that was posted saying Kalampa is nolonger the Red Devils, they have repented to Red Angels. My comment was right kanshi it was the Weed talking as always. Ifyamba bakalampa mukaleke

    Zesco United will win the league, the gulf in class and depth between the two sides is their for those of us who are not blinded by loyalty to see. Zesco gave us five players including our captain and top scorer or i forgot! including their former coach Masauso Mwale and when we played them in Ndola they outplayed us and proved their superiority.Over 30 games, nkana can never match Zesco United.I agree with Rod. am a nkana fan but am realistic.I missed my kitwe derby for the first time in over 30 years and since i was near arcade, i rushed to sunset and gentelemen! Zesco is playing good and mature football needless to say they have depth, imagine Lottie Phiri wasn’t even on the bench!
