Cuthbert Sineta converted a penalty in the second half for Mighty Wanderers to secure win against Evirom and move from position seven to third in the elite TNM Super League on Wednesday in a match played at Balaka Stadium
The Nomads, without the presence of their coach Stewart Mbolembole and team manager Chiyembekezo Zidana, who are serving a two match ban for misconduct in their game against Red Lions struggled to find their rhythm.
From the word go, it was the relegated bound out-fit which dominated the proceedings of the game especially on the midfield where they were more organized.
Despite missing the services of their captain Harold Zulu, who is nursing an injury, Envirom fought hard by displaying fantastic football only that they lacked the killer punch unfront.
Twice, the relagtion threatened side, hit the Nomads wood work with other would-be goals being saved by Richard Chipuwa.
The blues introduction of Mayeso Mphanje and Benard Harawa for Timothy Chitedze and Kondwani Kumwenda was a game changer as they piled up more pressure to the visitors until towards the end of the second half when an Evirom defender pulled down Mphanje before the referee pointed on the spot kick.
With Cuthebert Sieta coolly slotting home to claim a win, the Nomads were in cloud nine.
The Nomads moved to third from seventh with 37 points behind Silver Strikers, who have 38 points and Red Lions basking on the summit table with 40 points.
Evirom coach Mario Gadaga conceded that they have surrendered on the relagation fight.
“We are going down but we will be spoilers in our remaining fixtures,” he said.
Mighty Wanderers assistant coach Albert Mpinganjira said he was not pleased with sterile attacking performance but delighted with the win.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
