Mighty Wanderers Football Club are confident of surviving relegation in the top flight TNM Super League after beating Lilongwe based Kamuzu Barracks in a thrilling match played at the Balaka Stadium on Sunday 9th November, 2014.
According to Wanderers’ Technical Director Yasin Osman, the win against K.B will increase their chances as they will only need a single win out of their remaining two games to stay up.
“We are happy that we have won this match and as everyone knows that we are trying to escape relegation, this 1-0 win is a blessing to us as it will only require us to win one of the remaining two games to be safe,” Osman told Nyasa Times in an interview after the match.
Commenting on the entire game, Osman blamed his charges for giving away possession easily.
“We started very well but we later on started to give away ball possession which was an advantage to our opponents who kept on pushing us to be back peddling,” he said.
Mighty Wanderers started the match a better side having dominated the opening minutes of the goal.
The Nomads worked hard tough in the absence of their key players Mike Kaziputa and midfield workhorse Jacob Ngwira who were nursing injuries.
Their hard work paid dividends midway towards the first half when sparrow Msowoya slotted the ball home after some nice footwork from Victor Mpinganjira who was voted man of the match at the end of 90 minutes.
K.B made a couple of substitution to increase the power upfront and find an equalizer but to no avail.
With the Sundays result, nothing has changed for the Nomads as they are stuck on position ten with 31 points from 26 games while K.B remain on position nine having won 3-1 against relegated Chikwawa United on Saturday.
