Power hand Chilumba stay of excution

Sports Power hand Chilumba stay of excution

Power Dynamos returned to winning ways on Saturday after a 1-0 home win over Red Arrows at Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe.

The victory came under a dark cloud for coach Tennant Chilumba that threatened to end his three year stay at Power after losing two successive games from three round of matches played into the 2016 FAZ Super Division season.

Chilumba came into the game handed with a five-match ultimatum to turn around Power’s fortunes or be fired.

His players responded in kind but poor finishing almost cost them the win.

Govender Simwala hit the post in the 10th minute before Billy Mutale failed to tap in from close range in the 23 minute.

However, the miss of the day came in the 43rd minute when Luka Lungu fired high and over on the goal-line off a rebound after Arrows goalkeeper parried Kelvin Mubanga’s free kick into his path.

Power snatched their precious win in the 78th minute through Martin Phiri who pounced on Daniel Munyao’s parry of Fwayo Tembo’s free kick.

Fwayo, who came on for Luka Lungu to make his debut in the 60th minute after signing with Power on a two-year deal last week as a free agent, did not disappoint and brought a kiss of life to Power’s otherwise uninspiring strike force this season.
