High flying Mighty Be Forward Wanderers on Sunday stretched their TNM Super League lead to seven points after beating Lilongwe based Police outfit Blue Eagles in a match played in front of a jam packed Balaka
The win comes barely 24 hours after the Nomads defeated league log table anchors Chitipa United 2-0 through a brace from Jafali Chande on the same venue.
Msosa scored the loan goal that sank the Blue Eagles ship in the opening 10 minutes of the first half.
He headed the ball home from a beautifully floated ball into the penalty box from the evergreen Joseph Kamwendo.
The Eagles looked a disjointed side as they failed to coordinate and ended up giving possession away so cheaply.
Their Captain Micium Mhone who was operating from the right flank tried to show some individual brilliance but he was properly taken care of by Wanderers left back Ted Sumani.
Both sides failed to create scoring opportunities leaving the two goalkeepers John Soko for Blue Eagles and Richard Chipuwa for the Nomads on holiday.
In the second half, Blue Eagles tried to make some changes in search of an equaliser but it made little impact.
However, the coming in of former Flames international Phillip Masiye improved things at the centre of the park as he was able to win aerial balls against Wanderers holding midfielder Alfred Manyozo Junior.
Manyozo however ended up denting his his good works in the 88th minute when he had his spot kick saved by Soko.
The referee awarded a penalty after a Blue Eagles defender had handled the ball in the penalty area.
After the match, Blue Eagles coach Audrey Makonyola conceded the defeat but blamed his charges for lack of concentration.
“We accept we have lost that’s part of the game but we never expected to lose. Our pairing at the back wasn’t good as we were missing the
services of our defender Ackim Kazombo who partners well with Geo Banda. In short we lacked coordination that is why we ended up
conceding that goal” said Makonyola.
His counterpart Yasin Osman was all smiles after collecting maximum six points over the weekend.
“It has been a very good weekend; playing two games and winning both its something worth celebrating for but we still have a long way to
go” said Osman.
He however blamed the officiating team for lacking coordination as they differed in making decisions on several occassions.
The Nomads are comfortably sitting at the top of the log table with 28 points from 11 games.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
