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.

  1. Mighty need a serious post mortem. Second win and their strikers could not score! Look for strikers look for strikers look for strikers. Zambia has plenty of untapped talent all over.


  2. Ba LT you are to early to put Mighty Mufulira Wanderers on the relegation list…. The season is far from over and it has not even reached half way for anyone to choose a candidate for relegation or even a candidate for Championship. Mighty will bounce back and will survive this so called relegation….Ba Zesco is still on course for the title, there is still time…
