Mzuni, who lost 2-0 to Surestream FC on Saturday at Kalulu Stadium in Chikwawa District in what was the other new comers first win since gaining promotion, managed to keep Wanderers at bay on Sunday but two second-half goals from the Nomads saw them proving their title credentials.

Wanderers breathed into life after coach Elia Kananji’s tactical substitution of striker Jimmy Zakazaka and winger Isaac Kaliyati for Luke Milanzi and Mapopa Kaunda respectively paid dividends in the second half.

Minutes after the substitutions, Sparrow Msowoya headed Wanderers ahead in the 69th minute before Kaunda cushioned the scoreline two minutes later.

Wacheta Mwenefumbo grabbed Mzuni’s consolation in the 83rd minute.

Wanderers have 18 points from eight games, whereas Bullets have 19 points from nine games after defeating 10-man Azam Tigers 2-1 at the same Blantyre where referee John Phiri sent for an early shower Tigers defender John Machira for a second bookable offence on the 31st minute.

The second defeat of the season leaves Tigers fourth on 14 points, whereas Silver Strikers jumped to third at 16 points after trouncing rookies Dedza Young Soccer Stars 4-0 on Saturday, thanks to a Green Harawa’s hat-trick.

In other games, Kamuzu Barracks won 5-3 against Epac on Saturday whereas Blue Eagles and Civo United shared spoils at 1-1 on Sunday in Lilongwe.

The draw has taken the cops who missed the duo of John Banda and Mecium Mhone who are with the Malawi national football team in Egypt for a friendly match, to 16 points, three points behind the leaders Bullets FC who are fighting hard to defend the tittle.

Civo United have an uphill to climb, with their defender John Lanjesi missing in their squad due to unresolved transfer issues.

They are now remaining with six games before the season reaches mid break and they are working hard to move to a better position that is safer from relegation.

Sulom we need to critically look at Mzuni players. How many of those are actually students? I hear they are even playing a refugee from Burundi.

Sulom, why those huge differences in games played? Teams like EPAC and CIVO have least games yet have not contributed players to the national team. Total chaos. Jungle administration.
