Mighty Wanderers revived its faltering campaign to avoid relegation by beating Civo United 1-0 on Sunday at Balaka Stadium by scoring a late goal.
This was a first game for the blues to start life after coach Gerald Phiri resigned last week.
It was unconvincing but they got back to winning ways and perhaps the starts of good times at Lali Lubani Roads.
They win has pushed Nomads back to position 10 in the standings of the flagship TNM Super League.
The blues left it late to snatch the victory an 87th minute on the clock through a penalty which was converted by Mike Kaziputa.
Wanderers stand-in coach Yasin Osman said the win was “most important” to kick start the victory era.
“We needed to find a way to win today,” he added.
Osman said the confidence “will get better and this will give us belief.”
Elsewhere, Airborne Rangers boosted Big Bullets title campaign when they slaughtered league leaders Moyale Barracks by 5-1 at Chitowe Stadium.
Sunday’s defeat means that Moyale are still neck to neck with Bullets as both teams have 44 points.
Airborne’s victory have moved the team to position nine with 25 points.
Moyale coach Nicholas Mhango remarked that the defeat left “a scar in his heart that he will never forget.
Mhango also went on to say there had been “much suffering” – as well as joy – since he joined and watching his team beaten so convincingly by the new rookies , severely damaging their title hopes in the process.
The visitors were caught dilly-dallying in possession on too many occasions, leaving Airborne Rangers powerful midfield to steal the ball
with ease and ruthlessly surge forward to get the better of a ragged Moyale defence.
