Efficient Nkana heap misery on Power in Kitwe derby

Sports Efficient Nkana heap misery on Power in Kitwe derby

Power Dynamos on Saturday suffered their second successive league defeat on Saturday when Nkana beat them 2-0 away in the Kitwe derby at Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe.

The defeat came a week after Power lost 1-0 away at Nkwazi that was cue for the sacking of Kelvin Kaindu last Tuesday after sixteen months in charge.

But the arrival of veteran coach Fordson Kabole failed to yield anything extraordinary in the big derby , a compulsory yardstick and rite of passage for any coach in football-mad Kitwe on both sides of the Ndola-Kitwe Dual Carriageway.

Power were second best and only showed sporadic flashes through their captain and playmaker Larry Bwalya.

Meanwhile, Ronald Kampamba put Nkana ahead in the 10th minute when he left Clifford Saudi crawling on the ground before beating goalkeeper Lawrence Mulenga.

Hassan Khamis headed-in the final goal in the 63rd minute from a Liason Thole corner to end Nkana’s three-match Kitwe derby winless run against Power.

Nkana’s win sees them jump from second from bottom in Pool B at number nine and up to seventh on 12 points from eight games played and five in hand.

And despite their backlog, Nkana are five points behind Power who are sixth on 17 points from thirteen games played.

  1. Looking at the coach of Power Dynamos who has replaced sacked Kaindu makes me laugh.What type of training can this old coach of the sixties bring to this generation? He couldn’t even express himself during the post match interview. Shame to the executive!

  2. It’s a shame the power executive fired Kaindu & replaced him with Coach Kabole. With due respect football has evolved & Coach Kabole may not keep up with the trends. Unless Power want to be Crystal Palace who are not ambitious but always fighting against relegation

    • From the kind of budget that Crystal Palace has, one can say that they are a successful team. They’ve just beaten Arsenal who has a much bigger budget than them. Nothing wrong with Kabole, who says he has not been following evolutions in football?
