Mzuni whack pussy-footed Wanderers: Malawi TNM Super League

Forget about being one of the well sponsored side. Forget about the alias ‘Mighty’,  Be Forwad Wanderers  has been rudely trimmed to size. Hudson Milanzi scored a brace as Mzuni beat weak and pussy-footed Wanderers 4-2 in the last fixture of the TNM Super league for the first round.

Wanderers were first to score through Jimmy Zakazaka from close range with only a few minutes played into the first half but Mzuni replied five minutes later through  Fraston Chisi.

Two minutes later, Milanzi put the Mzuzu based team in front with a clever finish having beaten Francis Mlimbika before releasing a clever shot to score.

Luwindiko Nshane made it 3-1 towards the end of the first half living Nomads  assistant coach Elia  Kananji with a lot of work to do if he was to inspire his players for a comeback  in the last half.

Despite making changes in the second half, the Lali Lubani boys failed to produce sparkling moments which should have given them the required goals.

However, it was Milanzi again scoring from a long short sending Wanderers keeper Richard Chipuwa into the wrong direction.

Towards the end of the second half, Peter Wadabwa who was decorated with player of the month award at halftime  for the month of July was able to reduce the arrears for Wanderers but only from the penalty spot after a Mzuni player had handled the ball in the 18-yard box.

Speaking after the game, Kananji bemoaned fatigue as the reason behind his team’s poor showing.

“We arrived from Balaka midnight of Saturday and regrouped early morning for this game. Already we have a number of players on the injury list but this one came too soon.

“We accept defeat because we did not match their play and they really deserve to go with maximum points,” said Kananji.

In his remarks, Coach for Mzuni Alex Ngwira who was sent to the stands by the referee during the second half told Nyasa Times that his boys are fast maturing.

“We struggled last season and worked on our mistakes during off – season to recharge ourselves. I can see maturity in most of  my players and today’s performance was exceptional,” said Ngwira.

The win means Mzuni has finished above both Wanderers and Bullets after the first round of games in the TNM super league.

Elsewhere in Presidential Cup, Mangochi Police FC has booted out Super League side Wizards FC through post match penalties at MDC stadium in Blantyre.

    Ndinali pa Kamuzu Stadium. Ganyo ndime kakan’gono koma malipiro phwamwamwa. Our players were tired, eeh fatigue blah blah, zoona zake u were trimmed to size, maliro tiyika lero ku chilomoni. Penalty dzulo simunaikane bwanji atakupatsani. I saw it replayed on Beta tv last night, it was dubious one given outside 18 box.
