Zesco United test Power Dynamos’ revival

Sports Zesco United test Power Dynamos' revival

Power Dynamos’ six-match unbeaten run faces another big test when they visit champions Zesco United on Thursday in Ndola.

The game comes two weeks after Power defeated leaders Zanaco 2-1 at home in Kitwe raising their prospects as a strong title contenders again after a stuttering start to the 2016 season.

Power, though, have yet to beat Zesco in three successive league games over the last two seasons since a 2-1 home win in Kitwe in August, 2014.

Another key factor heading into the match is the departure of striker Fwayo Tembo whose seven goals have been key in Power’s revival; the highlight being his goal and assist in the victory over Zanaco are points of reference.

Meanwhile, Zesco interestingly return to league action for the first time since July 12 that has left them with a backlog of six games.

Zesco have since then immersed themselves in 2016 CAF Champions League Group A engagements beat ASEC 3-1 at home and drawing 1-1 away before finishing 2-2 away to Al Ahly in Egypt to see them secure their debut qualification to the semifinals of the same competition.

Another win over Power will keep them in fifth place but move them within four points of their guests who have 40 points from 22 matches.
