Moyale Barracks winning run ended with a goalless draw against Mighty Wanderers in the TNM Super League on Saturday, a result that did neither side much good in their campaign for title and against relegation respectively.
The soldiers, who are still on the top slot, started brightly and went close through Deus Nkutu and the lively Gastin Simkonda.
The Nomads striking force was wasteful as it misfired a lot of scoring opportunities.
Sparrow Msowoya was denied by Mac Donald Harawa’s clearance as the Nomads secured a point.
The Nomads thoroughly deserved a draw in what was a fiercely contested encounter, and are now on 10th position.
Mighty Wanderers coach Gerald Phiri said: “We should have won the game, but it still keeps us in a strong position in the race for the
top five .
“I felt that in the first half the referee didn’t deal well with the intimidating physical challenges, but that we responded well to the physicality. It was detrimental to the fluency of our game, but we kept going, had good concentration. You have to respect the effort Moyale put in. They decided to make it very physical for us to disturb our game and sometimes went a little bit over the edge, but the referee had to make the right decision.”
Moyale Barracks coach Nicholas Mhango: “We need to win this match to widen the gap but the title is for us to lose.”
