Still fresh from their recent northern region sojourn, which also yielded a single point, the sleeping giants from Blantyre started their tour of the capital city on a sour note after losing 1-0 to Silver Strikers on Saturday.

Their hopes of salvation on Sunday vanished into thin air after 90 minutes, when relegation threatened Epac cancelled out the Nomads’ 19th minute lead.

Making about five changes to their starting line-up against Silver the previous day, the Nomads took the lead against Njenjete after 19 minutes, when unmarked Luka Milanzi received a pass from Muhammad Sulumba to slot the ball home.

Epac vehemently protested against the goal, charging both Sulumba and Milanzi were in off-side positions but referee Zondwayo Siwombo stood to his ground.

Sulumba could have made it 2-0 for the visitors in the closing stages of the first half but he failed to beat Epac goalkeeper Tione Tembo in a one-on-one situation.

As Nyerere thought they had the three points in the bag, Njenjete pulled level in added time through Ranken Mwale following a free kick by Justin Kamanga.

Wanderers’ team manager Steve Madeira expressed disappointment with the  result but expressed hope that things would change for the better in his camp.

“We needed to react today after losing yesterday but we were very unfortunate to concede in the 90th minute. It is very painful for us as well as the supporters but I am hopeful that we will go through this bad spell and get back to our winning ways,” said Madeira.

Epac coach Abbas Makawa was furious with the officiating personnel and did not grant any journalists an interview.

He left for the dressing room shouting on top of his voice as some members from the Epac camp tried to deal with the officiating personnel.

The officiating crew left the field unharmed but referee Siwombo met his fate about half an hour later, when he was manhandled by a group of Epac fans while leaving the stadium. He was rescued by police officers, who rushed to the scene.

Before the incident, there was also drama in Wanderers’ camp as some irate fans ordered the team’s bus to leave the stadium without the players.

The bus left but after the intervention of the supporters’ regional chairman Christopher Kamwendo and other officials, the bus returned to pick the players, who had been surrounded by police.

The bus was escorted by a police vehicle.

Thats why the nomads are seeking devine intervetion, After the Balaka- Wanderers- Silver game that ended in fracas and led to Jositara losing life, Wanderers and Silver have now met Seven times and Silver have beaten wanderers six times and the two sides have drawn once. Wanderers is still paying the hard price of killing Jositala in Balaka.
