The Nomads were shown an exit-door by the Mzuzu based soldiers with a Khuda Muyawa first half goal at the Mzuzu Stadium in front of 800 travelling supporters – a match that cost K2000 per ticket to attend.

And right back Mlimbika, who wore the captain’s armband, told Nyasa Times: “The supporters have been fatanstic and stuck with us and travelled to support us so I can only only say sorry  on behalf of the other players.”

Hre said the players will ensure to bring some smiles to the supporters.

“Hopefully we can give them some reward for the unbelievable support they’ve shown both the players and the club.”

The Lion-heartened defender assured their fans that they will be paid soon in their next game.

The Nomads have what looks like a walkover game against MTV Max Bullets on Thursday in the League game at the Kamuzu Stadium.

The ‘oranges’ struggled in the first half during the game especially on the midfield, where Ernest Tambe and Patrick Gunde were paired for the first time this season in absence of Rafiq Namwera, who was left behind with a cough and flue.

But Mlimbika added: “We   can’t make any excuses. To come here and lose is nowhere near good enough. We tried our level best especially in the second half but luck was not on our side as we lost 60 per cent of our scoring chances.”

In the other camp, Moyale Barracks vastly experienced striker Gastin Simkonda applauded their fans and ganyu supporters for their support.

“Let me also salute our fans in conjunction with the ganyu fans for their support. We played as a unit and that was the only secret on our side,” said Simkonda.

Coach for Moyale Collins Nkuna thanked his charges for playing to instructions.

Moyale will now face Nyasa Big Bullets in the finals after the Peoples Team ousted Mafco FC 3-0 with beautiful goals from Henry Kabichi and a hat trick from Mike Nkwate.

For the past two years, the competition was not held as the funds were diverted to the national team engagements.
