Mighty Mufulira Wanderers host their regular customers Power Dynamos at Shinde Stadium in Mufulira on Saturday looking to stay unbeaten for a second game on the trot.

Bottom of the table Mighty come into the match three days after picking up their first league win of the 2017 season when they beat Nkwazi 2-0 away in Lusaka.

And now Mighty,who have 4 points, face the new league leaders Power who sneaked to the summit after a 5-0 home win over Konkola Blades in Kitwe on May 24.

But Power have not beaten Mighty since 2005 when the latter made a brief return to the FAZ Super Division following their debut demotion in 2002.

Power have since then failed to beat Mighty since the 9-time champions returned to the top flight in 2015.

A 1-1 home draw in Kitwe in the 2015 season is the only point Power have collected against the Shinde side.

Since then, Mighty have won all the last three meetings and also snatched a boardroom decision over Power last October in Kitwe after the assistant referee in that match was hurt by an object thrown from the stands.

Mighty were actually leading and dominating Power 1-0 before the match was abandoned at halftime before FAZ handed the Mufulira club the 3-0 away win.

However, Power are unbeaten this season from eight games and lead the table on 16 points, two more than the top four trio of Zanaco (2nd), Zesco United (3rd) and Lumwana Radiants (4th) where all tied on 14 points.

Power will be hoping to end that winless drought that will see them stay top should they pick a rare victory over Mighty.
