Beston Chambeshi’s third coaching stint at Nkana started with a 2-1 loss against Power Dynamos on Saturday in the big Kitwe derby played at Nkana Stadium in Wusakile.
Chambeshi, who replaced fired Zeddy Saileti on Wednesday, saw Nkana give away a first half lead to lose this Week 12 match of the FAZ Super Division.
Striker Martin Phiri was the hero for Power after scoring a double for the visitors.
Kalampa made a false start with Shadreck Musonda opening the scoring on 19 minutes.
Phiri , who benefited from defensive lapses in the Nkana team, registered his goals in the 42nd and 47th minutes to steal the lime-light.
The win pushes Power to 20 points with Nkana remaining stuck on 16 points after 12 matches played.
