Power Dynamos throw away lead, held to two-all draw by Tanzanian giants, Simba SC


Zambian Champions, Power Dynamos, were held two-all draw by Tanzanian giants Simba SC on Saturday, with Chipolopolo midfielder Clatous Chama coming back to Levy Mwanawasa Stadium to haunt the Kitwe based outfit.

Chama who had a stint with ZESCO United looked at home at the Ndola Stadium, fittingly so as it is the backyard of the former Zambian Super League champions.

Power threw away the lead on two occasions and had to settle for a draw in an interesting CAF Champions League first leg second round encounter.

Power Dynamos drew first blood in the 29th minute through a Joshua Mutale goal to give their supporters hope.

Power looked like they were in pole position for a positive result as they went into half time a goal up.

However, after the break, former Lusaka Dynamos winger Clatous ‘Triple C’ Chama cancelled out Mutale’s opener in the 59th minute.

With the match evenly poised and looking like it was headed for a draw, Cephas Mulombwa restored the lead for the Kitwe giants on 75 minutes.

Just when it looked like Power could hold on for a famous victory over the Tanzanian giants, Chama had other ideas.

Triple C scored an injury time leveller to cause heartbreak to Power Dynamos.

The second leg will be played in Tanzania in two weeks time for a spot in the prestigious group stage of the CAF Champions League.
