Wanderers managed to find a breakthrough early in the game through Isaac Kaliati who headed home a Mike Kaziputa corner.

In the 40th minute, Mike Kaziputa released Kaunda, who sent Max Bullets keeper one way and then the other, only to lash his shot into the side-netting, while on the other side Peter Munthali saved a snapshot from Clement Ng’ombe.

Despite taking control of the proceeding, the Max Bullets players managed to keep the blues at bay and match went on recess at 1-0.

Wanderers maintained their tactical game in the second half as they kept piling more pressure on their opponents and this paid off when Isaac Kaliati worked himself a decent opportunity by rounding off two Bullets players before planting the ball into the net.

The Nomads keeper was brilliant in goals, as he denied Max Bullets too many scoring opportunities.

It was turning into a bravura performance by the former Chikwawa United keeper, who denied Chikondi Mpulula another scoring opportunity in the 56th minute, when his shot kissed the bar.

Munthali also repelled efforts from Mayeso Mphanje and Mpulula either side of a razor-sharp double-save that left Mphanje   with his head in his hands.

Max Bullets reduced the arrears five minutes before full regulation time through Chiyembekezo Thabo, but they could not force the Nomads into penalties.

Wanderers side had Precious Msosa partnered Mapopa Kaunda upfront, while Mike Kaziputa and Sparrow Msowoya operated from the wings.

On the midfield, the Nomads featured Isaac Kaliati, Jacob Ngwira and Rafiq Mussa, who was probably man of the match.

In defence, Kananji opted for three defenders by leaving the mantle to form a concrete wall in the hands of Enock Likoswe, Francis Mlimbika and Stanley Sanudi.

“The youngsters pushed us all the way, In Cup games any team is a difficult opponent,” Wanderers coach Elia Kananji said after the match.

“Credit should go to my players for being resolute and having good mentality to win the match,” he added.

Max Bullets coach Aubrey Nankhuni said he was encouraged by his players performance against Super League title contenders.

“They did played their hearts out. It was not an easy win for Wanderers but am really impressed with my boys for an encouraging performance,” said Nankhuni.

Elesewhere, a lower league team Support Battalion produced a giant killing performance when they booted out Super League side Mzuni FC 3-2 through post-match penalties to book a ticket to face United.

    I dont think nomads are in good shape. Seriuosly the team is strugling in front of goal. Football these days is no longer about playing well but winning games. Please Elia try to come up with a team that will win games. Already the league seems to be escaping so may be try to win a cup.
