Pride is at stake as Nkana and Power Dynamos clash on Saturday at Arthur Davies Stadium in the final installment of the Kitwe derby in the 2018 FAZ Super Division season.
The two Super Division giants face-off in Ndeke at 15h00 in the round 23 match seeking improved results.
Hosts Power are coming from a 1-0 loss to Kitwe United on Tuesday on the same day Nkana forced a disappointing 2-2 draw against struggling National Assembly in Wusakile.
“In a derby the worst result probably must be a draw,” Power coach Kelvin Kaindu said in a pre-match interview.
“When playing against big teams we come to the occasion. What has been a challenge with us are those so called small teams,” Kaindu said.
Power edged Nkana 2-1 in the first round match played in Wusakile.
“90 minutes will tell. We will go to fight for three points. We can’t run away from Power Dynamos and I am sure they respect us as we respect them,” Nkana coach Beston Chambeshi said.
Nkana are fourth on the table with 38 points, one ahead of sixth placed Power, after 22 matches played.
Power have one un-played match.
