Dynamos have won 12 games, drawn 15 games , conceded 23 goals, lost 3 games and scored 42 goals with 51 points on 5th position from 30 matches played.

 

Sixth placed Nkana have won 14 games , drawn 7 games , lost 9 games , scored 38 goals allowing 26 goals on 49 points after playing 30 matches.

Power and Nkana have played each other 17 times since 2008 with Nkana winning 4,Power winning 8 and 5 draws between them.

37 goals have been scored between the two teams since 2008 with Power scoring 23 goals compared to Nkana’s 14 goals.
