Forest Rangers and ex-Chipolopolo midfielder Clifford Mulenga added to Power Dynamos’ early season woes on Saturday when he scored a stoppage time goal to dispatch the ailing Kitwe giants to their fourth consecutive loss of the 2021/2022 FAZ Super League season.
Power were beaten 2-1 at Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe to remain on zero points after four straight league games played.
Mulenga fired in a stunning free-kick in the second minute of the three minutes of time added-on at the end of the match to hand Forest the 3 points on the road.
The ex-Jomo Cosmos midfielder came on in the 64th minute for Forest whom he joined last season as a free agent.
It was a painful loss to bear by Power after the six-time Zambian champions thought that they were on course for their first point of the season.
Second from bottom Power’s hopes were raised when midfielder Reagan Mtonga equalised in the 84th minute only for Mulenga to have the final say in rather dramatic fashion at the death.
Meanwhile, Forest took a one-nil halftime lead through a Webster Muzaza goal in the 23rd minute in a match they looked comfortable throughout.
Forest away victory also sees them return to second position after dropping to number four on Wednesday following a 2-1 home loss to league leaders Buildcon in their Ndola derby played at Levy Mwanawasa Stadium in Ndola.
Forest have 7 points from four matches played and are two points behind Buildcon who are hoping to open a five-point lead on Sunday in their home game at Levy Stadium against debutants Kafue Celtic.
