Mighty Wanderers dramatic upturn in form has transformed the TNM Super League title race after the Nomads beat Blantyre United 2-1 on Wednesday at Balaka Stadium.
The Nomads, riding on a crest of confidence after stunning Silver Strikers 1-0 last Saturday, ending unbeaten run for league leaders Red Lions and Azam Tigers in other recent past fixtures, the blues moved from fifth to second position and are just a point behind Red Lions with 24 points leading the log table.
Victor Chitedze and Victor Mpinganjira struck for the blues.
Wanderers coach Stuart Mbolembole believes the club can once again be considered serious contenders for the league title.
“There is a long way to go but we have to keep believing,” said Mbolembole.
“It can only happen if we win our games but if we go on performing like we have done in the last few league games and keep doing that, it’s all we can do.
“We need to keep this form and this attitude.”
Blantyre United coach Elia Kananji said his side has been plagued by injuries.
The team’s top striker Sparrow Msowoya, regular right-winger Abraham Kamwendo and midfielder Griffin Mwenebanda, among others are nursing injuries.
