Power Dynamos’ poor form continued on Wednesday evening following a 1-0 home defeat to Nkwazi at Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe.
The result was Power’s first home loss and their second overall of the 2018 season.
It also came five days after they stuttered to a 0-0 away draw at Lumwana Radiants in a match goalkeeper Joshua Titima saved a penalty for the Kitwe giants.
Nkwazi punished Power for a wasteful first five minutes when Chipungu Musukuma scored the game’s lone goal in the 7th minute.
The goal came against the run of play that saw striker Alex Ng’onga and midfielder Kelvin Mubanga guilty of being over elaborate in front of Nkwazi’s goal.
Power stay 4th despite the defeat on 17 points, five points behind leaders Zesco.
But Zanaco suffered their second successive league defeat five days after Zesco beat them 1-0 away in Lusaka.
Zanaco lost by the same margin away at 16th placed Lumwana who won via Victor Mubanga goal in the 21st minute.
The 2017 runners-up drop from 8th to 9th on 13 points following the loss.
