Esau Kanyenda marked his name again to Be Forward Wanderers duty by scoring the second goal in a 2-0 victory over Mafco on Saturday that saw the TNM Super League leaders go six points.
The vastly experienced striker, who took his Wanderers tally to 3 league goals, also scored against Kamuzu Barracks and Blantyre United.
Joseph Kamwendo opened the score sheet through a penalty after Stain Malata handled the ball inside the box.
However, the Salima based soldiers could have scored in the early 15 minutes of the game when they dominated the proceedings of the game, but their striking force was not sharp enough to upset Kondwani Lufeyo and Harry Nyirenda’s defence.
The victory means that the Nomads continued where they had left in the first round when they beat Mafco 3-0 at Civo Stadium.
Wanderers coach Yasin Osman praised Kanyenda’s display, telling the media after the game: “His performance was good and I am pleased for this.
“Before we signed him a lot of people asked me about his form, and I said I took the best decision for the team, and I think I made the best decision after this performance.”
Mafco coach Temwa Msukwa added: “It was not what we wanted from the game. We came here to compete, to take points.”
