Nakambala humble Power, Kabwe Warriors win away

Power Dynamos slumped to their 5th defeat of the season when they went down 1 – 0 away against Nakambala Leopards.

It was great relief for the Mazabuka side who finally managed to halt their free fall when they marked their first win in six games having lost five of those.

Power were punished by their former striker Ignatious Lwipa who scored his second goal in as many games.

Despite the loss, Power remain 5th on the log but missed a chance to go into third position.

Nakambala however move back into the top half of the table as they occupy 8th position on 17 points.

At Nkoloma Stadium, Red Arrows were held to a 0 – 0 draw by visiting Lusaka Dynamos.

Coach Matthews Phiri named veteran Francis Kombe in the starting line-up ahead of Festus Mbewe and the former Chipolopolo striker came close in the 5th when he saw his shot come off the upright.

Arrows were poor on the day with the other chance of the game coming late in the second half after a long range drive by Lubinda Mundia which was well saved by Daniel Sikanyika in the Dynamos goal.

Luka Chamanga who played at left back for Lusaka Dynamos saw his long range drive parried over the bar by Kenny Mumba but they will take heart from a spirited performance led by striker Kennedy Musonda who was there best player together with central defender Edward Chifwembe.

Former international midfielder Ian Bakala started the match for Dynamos.

With Green Eagles winning at home against Lusaka Tigers, Dynamos dropped into the relegation zone while Arrows move one step up into 11th position on 15 points ahead of Eagles and Forest Rangers on goal difference.

Mufulira Blackpool’s woes also continued when they were beaten 1 – 0 at home by Kabwe Warriors.

Blackpool looked like they would snatch a rare point at home but a last gasp effort by Claude Bwalya saw the Kabwe side grab maximum points to remain 7th on the log on 20 points behind Nkwazi on go difference.

The game in Northwestern province produced the most goals on a rather goal shy afternoon when Lumwana Radiants drew 2 – 2 with Mighty Mufulira Wanderers.
