Defender Emmanuel Zoya claimed the all important goal after eight minutes, when he sloted the ball home as Wanderers defence failed to deal with a corner kick by Fischer Kondowe.

Wanderers had several opportunities to level the scores but poor finishing coupled with selfishness on the part of their attackers let them down.

Bullets made a tactful change at half time, replacing midfielder Fischer Kondowe with defender George Nyirenda.

Wanderers brought in attacking midfielder Isaac Kaliayati and striker Peter Wadabwa for Rafik Mussa and Jafali Chande but Bullets were more organised in defence after adding the fourth defender.

The coming in of Jabulani Linje for Felix Zulu did not change things for the Nomads, who were lucky not to concede more in the second half.

This was the first loss for Wanderers in regulation time at the newly build Bingu Stadium, where they claimed two consecutive victories over their rivals in pre-season the Luso Bus Ipite and Wafawafa bonanza.

Wanderers coach Yasin Osman blamed the defeat on the missed first half scoring opportunities.

“Bullets had an early goal and we had chances to level scores but we squandered all the opportunities we had.

“In the second half, Bullets defended well and we had few chances. But I feel the better team lost today,” said Osman.

His counterpart Elia Kananji praised his chances for playing to instructions.

“I know the players at Wanderers and I thank my boys for doing exactly what I told them,” said Kananji.

Bullets have 21 points from 12 games and have moved to position 4 while Wanderers still remain on the summit of the table with 28 points with same number of games played and points gap with their rivals is now seven.

This is the second defeat for Wanderers in the capital and second in the season, the first was against much imporved Civil Sporting through a 2-0 beating.

The problem at wanderers is the coaching panel led by an old guard who has lost his coaching skills. Wanderers have the best prayers in Malawi but Yasin is failing to direct them. He is using colonial coaching tricks which he learnt from Wonder Moreira. He spends his time on the bench smoking. He needs to be relieved otherwise the team will continue to lose..He has no tactics. He can’t read the game. He mispositions players and takes years to substitute players. A team of stars like wanderes with the best sponsorship on the land cannot lose to the teams… Read more »
