Leaders Power Dynamos can build a commanding lead at the top of the MTN Super League table this weekend with 10 rounds remaining in the Zambian championship.

They will host improving Kabwe Warriors in the featured game on Sunday, looking to extend their five-point advantage at the top of the table having seemingly put behind them their run of draws.

Warriors have climbed out of the relegation zone with just one defeat in their last eight games (W5 D2) and will be no pushovers, but Dynamos will expect to complete the job at home.

That being said, they have drawn half of their 12 games in front of their own fans this campaign (W5 L1), while Warriors have drawn eight of their 11 on the road (W0 L3).

Second-placed Forest Rangers will be waiting for any slipups as they host another improving side, Nkana FC, who have won their last two.

Rangers have emerged as perhaps the most serious challengers to Dynamos this season but are winless in their last three against Nkana (D2 L1).

Third-placed Green Buffaloes are nine points behind Dynamos having drawn 13 of their 24 games this campaign, more than any other side. They will hope for better when they go to third-bottom Nkwazi.

ZESCO United returned to winning ways last weekend and remain in the hunt for CAF qualification places and can overtake fourth-placed FC MUZA with an away win.

MUZA rose as high as second place earlier in the campaign but no wins in four (D3 L1) as seen them slip back.

ZESCO have just a single away win in nine Super League games (D4 L4), which came at defending champions Red Arrows (3-0) last month.

Arrows host relegation-threatened Chambishi as they also seek CAF qualification for next season, while other matches on Saturday see Prison Leopards welcome Nchanga Rangers, Lumwana Radiants entertain Zanaco and NAPSA Stars host Kabwe Warriors.

Buildcon, who won just a second game of the season last time out, visit mid-table Green Eagles.
