It took the Nomads close to 21 minutes  to open the scoring as Mike Kaziputa scored  after poor timing from Bester Phiri.

Then Jimmy Zakazaka,who   linked up well with Peter Wadabwa assisted the second goal from a corner kick which was headed in by Wadabwa.

Wanderers veteran goalkeeper Vales Kamzere made good saves to deny Benard Chimayimba coming close for the visitors.

Wizards,who showed sublime skill and movement in the first half were useless upfront as their strikers looked jittery and playing without a purpose.

The Peter Mponda boys were good on ball possesion but their usual system of trying to score in the box let them down.

The  skill and movement of attacking trio Peter Wadabwa, Jimmy Zakazaka and Chande, who struggled, was too much for Wizards to handle and the margin of victory could have been far more emphatic.

Alfred Manyozo  controlled the tempo of the game – while centre-backs Louis Minjale was largely untroubled.

The Nomads fans can as well say kudos to their coaches for the victory because they had a makeshift defence with the absence of regular defenders due to suspensions and injuries.

For instance,they fielded two midfielders Alfred Manyozo and Malumbo Gondwe in defence including Louis Minjale who is not their regular player.

The result means the Nomads have moved to position 6 with 35 points,while Wizards are on number 14 with 19 points.
