Premier Bet Wizards began life at their new home, Mulanje Park with a goalless draw against Silver Strikers in a TNM super league opener.
Silver who have five former Wizards players in their camp were given a tough ride by the rookies who had a goal disallowed in the first 45 minutes.
However, the Capital city giants had their share of possession soon after the recess but failed to find the back of the net despite creating a few chances.
Wizards on the other hand could have bagged maximum points towards the final whistle only for the Bankers goalkeeper to save the situation for his side.
Speaking to Nyasa Times after the game, Wizards Technical Director Peter Mponda was happy with the draw and praised his boys for the fight.
“We gave them a tough run for their money. We wanted to live a mark at our new home with a winning start but a point is not bad especially considering that we were playing against a strong side. We hope to improve in our next game,” said Mponda.
In his remarks, Silver strikers Coach Lovemore Fazili admitted that Wizards came on them.
“They caught us by surprise but we managed to contain the pressure. We are happy with the draw. We hope to win our next game so that we return home with four points,” said Fazili.
