Relegation candidates Mufulira Wanderers secured only their second victory of the season after beating Power Dynamos 1-0 in Saturday’s FAZ Super Division match played at Shinde Stadium.
Ex-Chipolopolo defender Francis Kasonde scored an own goal to hand Wanderers three points in front of their home supporters.
Captain Kasonde tapped a high ball into his own net after being put under pressure by Mighty’s Joseph Sitali on nick of half time.
It was not surprising that an own goal separated Wanderers and Power as both sides created few scoring opportunities in this Week 12 match.
Besides the goal, the other major highlight in the game came after 33 minutes when Power forward Fwayo Tembo forced a save from keeper Robert Mwanza after connecting a Govenda Simwala free-kick.
Tembo further denied his side an equaliser when his close range shot went slightly over the bar 16 minutes from time.
Meanwhile, this result ends Anderson Phiri’s four-game unbeaten run as Power interim coach.
Interestingly, this is Mighty’s first win under interim coach Chewe Mulenga “Bomber” who took over the reigns following the resignation of Manfred Chabinga last month.
