A string of substitutions at half time provided a much needed injection of pace and confidence in front of goal to help Be Forward Wanderers secure a 3-0 victory over Lake Valley in a pre-season friendly encounter in Ntcheu.
Following a frustrating first half, PreciousMsosa scored twice for the Nomads before, replacement Ishmael Thindwa got his team the third goal after capitalising on a good nudge from a Lake Valley defender to the far post, doing well to bring the ball down and squeeze it past an oncoming Keeper.
The Nomads, who left behind most of their regular players like Joseph Kamwendo, Peter Wadabwa, JaffaliChande, Richard Chipuwa, Stanely Sanudi, Mike Kaziputa and Jabulani Linje displayed fantastic football in the first half but they were frustrated by Chambo in Lake Valley’s goal.
On several occasions, Amos Bello, whose form was outstanding was denied by Chambo on a man to man situation, as well as Precious Msosa.
On his debut, Wanderers central defender was outstanding as he commanded the defence brilliantly, while Under-20 star Francisco Madinga had mixed fortunes as he failed to penetrate Lake Valley’s defence.
Wanderers coach Yasin Osman also gave a chance to Cameroonian custodian Hamza Noah a chance to man the posts, while RafiqNamwela and Ernest Tambe were left with the mantle to operate from the middle of the park.
After the last whistle, Wanderers Team Manager Steven Madeira said they were impressed with the performance of their boys and described the game as a good platform to asses combinations.
Meanwhile, the Nomads will play Wizards FC on Wednesday at Limbe Country Club.
