Barely 24 hours after beating Silver Strikers 1-0, Mighty Wanderers were left frustrated as 10-man on Sunday as EPAC United battled to a 1-1 forcing the two teams to share a point each in the TNM Super League.
In a water logged pitch, the Nomads, looking to strengthen their title pursuits, were first to kiss the net through a long range from Anthony Banda.
However, the ‘Njenjete zapa Lilongwe’ rallied and levelled equalised in the second half courtesy of Bright Phiri.
Both teams failed to play flowing football due to a wet pitch and they resorted in playing aerial balls.
In Sunday’s encounter, the Nomads tactician Franco Ndawa made a few changes by bringing Nafe Msasa, who did not play against Silver the previous day.
Another player who did not play was their defence pillar Foster ‘Zagaf’ Namwera, due to an injury he picked up against Silver.
On the other side, Epac’s coach Abasi Makawa introduced Sundowns bound goal poacher Ishmael Thindwa,who failed to tick as regenerated Allan Kamanga tightly marked him.
The combination of Kamanga and Francis Mlimbika was solid. At the end, Mlimbika who produced an all-action display was voted man of the match.
Nomads coach Franco Ndawa blamed the referee for being harsh on them by favouring the capital city out fit.
“The referee made some questionable decisions against us otherwise it is not bad collecting
four points out of possible six,”he said.
In another match in Mzuzu, Moyale Barracks won 3-1 to Blue Eagles.
The soldiers netted their scores through Gastin Simkonda, Boyi Boyi Chima and Deus Nkutu while the Area 30 cops scored through of Innocent Bokosi.
The game between Civo United and Cobbe Barracks was cancelled due to heavy down pour in Zomba.
On Monday Big Bullets will face Azam Tigers in Chikhwawa.
