The Zomba based out fit equalized a few minutes later.
It was a see-saw game as both sides displayed fantastic football, but Blantyre United were more determined as they were pressing hard for a winning goal.
Players like Cuthebert Sinetre and Jidde Mbandambanda were a thorn to the visitors.
Chikoti Chirwa’s absent for Red Lions in the middle of the part was felt because they failed to dictacte things.
