Mighty ‘Nyerere’ Wanderers’ 4-2 loss at the hands of Blantyre United on Saturday, December 15, 2012 has had a spillover effect as the Nomads have slumped from fifth to seventh position on the TNM Super League log table.
This follows victories registered by Blue Eagles and Civo United over their Sunday, December 16, 2012 opponents.

The Nomads’ cause was not helped by Civo’s 3-2 victory over bottom-placed Kabwafu as the servants now lie sixth with 32 points from 21 games.
Patrick Gunde (penalty), Martin Masoatheka and Dan Katunga were the servants on target as Civo came from a goal down to defeat the visitors from Mzimba, who took the lead through Dan Lusale.
Ibrahim Kaunda tried to put Kabwafu back into the contest on 89 minutes but the full-time whistle saved the servants.
Elsewhere at Kalulu Stadium, Moyale Barracks completed their successful tour of the south with a 2-0 victory over struggling Azam Tigers.
Crispin Fukizi put the soldiers on the victory trail against the run of play before Gastin Simkonda sealed the victory in added time.
