Nkana vs Power Derby Pt 1: Power’s View


The countdown has begun for the first big Kitwe derby in two years when Nkana host Power Dynamos in the first installment in Wusakile this Saturday in a Super Division Week 10 fixture.

On top of the bragging rights, both teams are on a high up on the table in the top five with just one point separating them, giving this match an even greater significance so early in the season.

Power are 4th on 14 points while Nkana are 5th with 13 points.

After Power and Nkana’s rather modest league outings over the weekend in their respective week 9 games, both sides were back in training on Tuesday on either side of the Ndola- Kitwe Dual carriageway as the countdown to Saturdays big showdown begins.

Power hold an edge from their previous meeting in 2008 when Nkana made a brief return after four years in division 1 with 1-0 and 3-0 away and home wins over the latter.

Kabole, who was also in charge that season and oversaw Power’s back-to-back wins, says the derby clash could go either way.

“If we play, we will carry the day. If they play well, they will carry the day,” said the soft spoke Kabole at Arthur Davies after Tuesday morning training.

Pressed to say what Power’s chances were against Nkana, Kabole said: “We will do our best to make them (Our fans) smile).”
