Nkana fought back from a goal down to draw 1-1 against Power Dynamos in Saturday’s key low Kitwe derby at Nkana Stadium in Wusakile.
Winger Kennedy Mudenda scored for Power with creative midfielder Jacob Ngulube equalising for Nkana.
Power took a 1-0 lead into the half time break after Mudenda had pounced on loose ball before unleashing a powerful shot that penetrated through the Nkana back-line five minutes earlier.
Ngulube levelled on 62 minutes when he turned in a Shadrick Musonda cross from the left wing.
However, Nkana were unlucky to have been denied a wining goal by the cross bar after 74 minutes.
Power were the first ones to create a serious scoring opportunity that saw strike Patson Daka’s 12 minute goal bound shot blocked by Joseph Musonda from the box.
This draw pushes Nkana to 20 points from 8 games played.
