The Nomads had also a frustrating Saturday on the same venue when they lost 2-1 to Mafco FC. They return to Blantyre with a point which has moved them to position 8 with 29 points.

Felix Zulu fired wide when through on goal in the first half, as both sides looked dangerous on the break.

Coach Edington Ngonamo introduced Ishmael Thindwa and Khumbo Ngambi  in search of a late winner, but both sides had to settle for a share of the spoils.

Wongani Kaipa  was called in action for injured Harry Nyirenda, partnering Kondwani Lufeyo , who kept his place in the centre of defence in three games.

Joseph Kamwendo and Rafiq Namwela started  in midfield, while Mike Kaziputa  and Felix Zulu  – who both made positive impacts operated from the wings.

Ted Sumani started on the left-back while man of the match Stanely Sanudi as usual started as a left back.

.Dwangwa coach Mc Donald Mtetemera named very similar squad that defeated Epac FC 3~1.

Frazer Menyani,formely of Max Bullets, led the line up front.

The game started at a fast and furious pace, amid a predictably raucous atmosphere at the home of the sugarcane side.

In the very first minute, Menyani broke into the box early on, but Wongani Kaipa was quickly across to snuff out the danger, and force a corner.

Felix Zulu  then swung the cross in to the far post, which just evaded the head of Dwangwa keeper.

Wanderers  settled and began to come forward themselves and Chande won a corner when his long-range effort was deflected wide.

The visitors were dominating possession, but were largely restricted to long-range shots, while Wadabwa  remained a constant threat on the break.

Stanely Sanudi was attacking frequently on the right wing, and one such overlap nearly provided Felix Zulu with a tap in, but Dwangwa defence was in the right place to cut out the danger.

Right at the end of the half Wanderers  were adamant they should have had a penalty when Dwangwa defender  slid in to dispossess Zulu , but referee waved away the protests.

Dwangwa also have themselves to..blame for failing ultilise too many free kicks outside the box.

In the second half, Wanderers were more dangerous as they pressed hard for a goal but a hard shot from Zulu found Wadabwa inside the box but he missed it with a whisker.

Emotions in the game were also high,as the referee sent Thindwa and a Dwangwa player for an early shower.

Ted Sumani also nearly converted a goal for the Nomads but an offside was spotted.

 Dwangwa then reacted with an overlapping but the final touch ended in the palms of the Chipuwa.

The last whistle gave the Nomads headache as they return to Blantyre from Dwangwa with a point.
