The KauKau boys were first to score through a Peter Kansonga’s penalty after Yamikani Chester was brought down inside the box.

Wanderers equalised in the 37th minute through Alfred Manyozo Jnr with a header connecting a good corner kick by Isaac Kaliati .

Tigers nearly secured the winning goal when Chester’s shot hit the woodwork to the relief of coach Elijah Kananji, who spend most of the 90 minutes on the touchline passing instructions.

The draw leaves the Nomads outside the top eight, as Tigers have now played six games in a role without victory.

The Nomads have moved up to eighth position from ninth. They have 27 points from 18 games while Tigers have also moved up to fourth with 32 points from 21 games.

The Nomads, who lacked creativity on the midfield with the absence of Rafiq Mussa were denied a penalty after a Tigers defender handled the box inside the box.

This raised the hackles of Wanderers  players, who remonstrated with referee Ishmael Chizinga , pointing out he had earlier gave  Tigers a penalty.

However, it was man of the match Yamikani  Chester ,who orchestrated  Tigers attacking movements, KauKau boys were altogether more brutally efficient in their modus operandi.

Brutal efficiency won out in those early stages of the second half as  Kansonga flashed a shot past  Chipuwa’s left-hand post, while  Chesters half-volley rattled the woodwork.

In the 78th minute, Nenani Juwayo was rescued when Peter Cholopi cleared a Jabulani Linje’s  shot close to the  line after the Tigers  goalkeeper was unable to gather a Wanderers corner.

In the 80th minute Wanderers  took a leaf out of  Tigers book and adopted a more direct approach, spearheaded by some strong running from Isaac Kaliat.

Midway through the second period, coach Elijah Kananji  revamped his attack by bringing off the anonymous Victor Nyirenda  and introducing  Muhammad Sulumba  and Kondwani Kumwenda for Patrick Gunde.

However, it was Jabulani Linje,who  made an impact, upfront outsprinting the KauKau defence and
forcing a good save from Juwayo who – unable to gather the ball cleanly – had to make a second stop from Linje.

In the 85 minutes Tigers looked determined as Benard Harawa  and  Kansonga swapped passes before Boston Kabango came to the Nomads rescue with a clearance.

In Lilongwe, Silver Strikers won their bragging rights on Saturday when they avenged their first round TNM Super League defeat at the hands of their capital city rivals Civo United with a 2-1 win at Civo Stadium.

The Bankers have reduced Big Bullets’ lead to five points as they now occupy the second position with 35 points from 20 games.

Silver Strikers played a pressing game right from the start and scored two goals within 30 minutes.

Victor Limbani drew first blood for the Bankers and Green Harawa doubled the score in the 29th minute.

Civo pulled one back six minutes to full time through Nelson Kanguje

At Balaka Stadium, Moyale held Red Lions to a two-all draw.
