Karonga United on Sunday held champions Be Forward Wanderers to a goalless draw in a TNM Super League match at Balaka Stadium in the most limp and hapless fashion possible.
This, to put it mildly, was not the day to get Coach Yasin Osman and his back room staff the statement of support he so craves.
Osman and the technical panel that includes assistant coach Bob Mpinganjira and team manager Steve Madeira have been given the five-match ultimatum to save their job which started with the draw against Karonga.
The coach could only look on and hope that this does not prove a knockout blow.
The five-games will tell whether Osman is the man to save Nomads season, but even if he does not, history suggests Lali Lubani Road boys will find a way among its legends .
Wanderers supporters in Balaka chanted for the resignation of Osman and his backroom staff.
They accused the technical panel of failing to make the right substitutions.
The match may have ended without incidents but Karonga players were forced to walk a distance of about 500 metres to catch their team bus as Wanderers supporters harassed them.
