Manda admits finish problems at Wanderers as they hit blank in Lilongwe

After being in-charge at Mighty Wanderers’ for just a week, stand-in coach Charles Manda has admitted the scoring problems at the Lali Lubani road side which at the weekend failed to score even a single goal in two league fixtures against Blue Eagles and Civo United.

On Saturday, the Nomads went down 2-0 at the hands of Blue Eagles at Nankhaka Ground in Area 30 before succumbing to a 1-0 defeat at Civo the next day.

Schumaker Kuwali and Charles Ngosi struck in either side of half-time to condemn the Nomads to another 2-0 defeat at Area 30, where they also lost by the same margin against the cops last season.

After facing arrest at Nankhaka, the Nomads failed to put their act together on Sunday as they fell again at Civo Stadium. Midfielder Nelson Kangunje netted the lone strike that condemned the visiting
Nomads to a second defeat in 24 hours after 65 minutes of play.

Summarising the games, Manda, who was in charge for the Nomads on both days lamented the lack of a killer instinct in the team.

The standard of play is not that bad but the team is failing to create chances let alone make use of any scoring opportunities arising in the course of play. We have to go back to the drawing board to rectify these problems,” said Manda.

The former Wanderers defender, who is yet to be given the nod by his employers- Football Association of Malawi to assist Wanderers said the two games had given him an opportunity to assess the players at his disposal.

With the two losses the Nomads have gone a step backwards at the bottom of the log table. They lie second from the bottom with a single point from six games. Silver Strikers also have a single point but
have a better goal-difference than the Nomads.
