Underdog Power stuns Nkana in derby

Sports Underdog Power stuns Nkana in derby

Power Dynamos stayed unbeaten against Nkana for a third successive Kitwe derby and moved within one point of their arch-rivals following Saturday home win.

Power stunned Nkana 1-0 at Arthur Davies Stadium to pick up two wins and a draw against Nkana.

Nkana were favourites coming into the match armed with a rich depth of players to count on over a modest Power who showed character despite their lack of technical wealth on the pitch.

Patson Daka headed in the games lone goal in the 17th minute of a first half that Power dominated.

However, drama is never very far behind Nkana on such occasions.

The match suffered a 15 minute delayed after the restart when Nkana fans went ballistics during the halftime period when one of their supporters jumped over the perimeter fence to join a troupe of Power mascots performing on the pitch during the break before he was bundled out by police.

That didn’t go down well with the Nkana fans who showered the pitch with bottles demanding their friend be returned and only then did play resume.

That incident killed any momentum the two teams had who went on to produce a spark-less display in the last 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, Power stay third but shift to 49 points, one point behind second placed Nkana after 25 matches played.

    • Aba Red,be mindful that u might play continental games next year and that behavior will make u lose games in the boardroom with irreparable damage to Zambian football.
      Thanks for the Good game though.
      Viva Aba Yellow!!!

  1. Me i know nkana fc fans very well , they will never accept a lose to power even a drew , to them its always the reff was not good or it was an off side goal , and i always tell them that if power scoals an offside goal to you , please do the same so that you be at paa, unfortunetly they dont, we have started humilieting you and we will keep doing untill you go back in division one. Viva power

  2. Vey wrong reporting. Power Dynamos was not an underdog. Power Dynamos have got quality players who are not modest in terms of their Talents. Players like Mudenda, Mubanga, Chungu, Stumbeko the list is endless
