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.
