Malawi international midfielder Robert Ng’ambi continues to shine in the Absa Premiership with impressive performance that helped his team Platinum Stars thrash SuperSport United 3-1 on Saturday to move top of the league table.
Goals from Sibusiso Msomi, Bonginkosi Ntuli and Ng’ambi condemned SuperSport (Matsatsantsa) at Lucas Moripe Stadium to their third straight defeat.
Robert Ng’ambi should have put Platinum Stars on the lead 30 minutes in the game when his acrobatic attempt went over the crossbar.
He was then disappointed when his second chance in the 39th minute was stopped by SuperSport goalkeeper.
The opening goal finally came eight minutes after the interval through Msomi and Ntuli doubled Stars’ lead on the hour mark with a superb solo run and finish.
SuperSport reduced the deficit through Jeremy Brockie before Ng’ambi restored Star’s lead in 76th minute.
This is a second time Ng’ambi has scored for his team this month, two weeks ago he helped his side to grab three points against Jomo Cosmos in a 2-1 win.
Ng’ambi’s impressive performance comes at a time Flames Coach Ernest Mtawali has refused to guarantee him a place in the Flames’ first-choice World Cup qualifiers line-up to face Tanzania on October 7 with the second leg set for Kamuzu Stadium five days later.
He was once shunned by Mtawali when he was left warming the Flames bench during the entire 2017 African Cup of Nations qualifying match against Swaziland away in Swaziland which ended 2-2.
The incident forced the skillful midfielder to openly express his disappointment towards Mtawali’s action.
