Why Power Dynamos will not win 2015 title

Sports Why Power Dynamos will not win 2015 title

Power Dynamos have admitted that Thursday’s loss at the hands of Zesco United has exposed their lack of depth in the team and aggressiveness on the transfer market.

Power were outplayed at home by the defending FAZ Super Division champions at Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe by Zesco who won 2-0 in a match that climaxed with a riot after the second goal in the 85th minute scored by Jonas Sakuwaha.

“Talking in terms of team performance it is straight forward that we have to beef-up especially our striking force,” Power secretary Ricky Mamfunda said.

Power were clearly struggling with striker Martin Phiri’s limitations in a big game temperament exposed while the ageing Luka Lungu showed greater signs of wear-and-tear after a-ten-year interrupted relationship with Power.

The departure of Alex Ndonga to CF Mounana in Gabon and most recently Jimmy Ndhlovu’s return to Nkana after his loan deal expired on June 30 has left Power virtually toothless in attack.

Furthermore, their newly commissioned midfield of Larry Bwalya and Kelvin Mubanga continues to blow hot and cold and they failed to match the combative towers of Zesco’s Kondwani Mtonga and Misheck Chaila.

In that department again Richard Kasonde’s departure for Nkana after one and a half years at Power has left the six-time champions with just twenty days to scramble for some new blood.

On a positive note, a deal to sign the well-travelled William Njobvu is looking very likely as Power also seek some fresh blood to also replace Emmanuel Chimpinde who is quickly plodding into the Napsa zone of football.
