Mighty Wanderers FC woes continued as they were held to a goalless draw on Saturday with much improved Kamuzu Barracks (KB) in the elite TNM Super League match at Balaka Stadium.
The Nomads, who played some impressive football in the first half failed to tick in the second half after opting to substitute Evance Napolo, who had a rich vein of form in the first half.
Napolo, formerly of Azam Tigers started with Gerald ‘Papa’ Phiri in front, as Victor Mpinganjira and Mike Kaziputa operated from the wings.
The Nomads could have been leading by two goals to nothing in the first, but alas! Papa missed two clear chances with the only inform goalkeeper Victor Nangwale to beat.
Sensing danger, the capital city soldiers reacted in the dying minute of the game with Joel Chipofya, formerly of the Lali-Lubani Road boys and Kelvin Malikebu but the Nomads defence led by Foster ‘Zagaf’ Namwera was alert.
Nomads technical panel pulled out Napolo killing their blunt striking force bringing in Cuthbert Sinetre.
Things turned sour for the blues when Gomegzani Gondwe was shown marching orders for punching a Kamuzu Barracks defender.
With only ten men onto the field of play, the Nomads struggled to contain the new rookies in the league. They were clearly disunited and lacked discipline at times
KB had a chance to win the match in the dying minute of the match but the Nomads were saved by a cross bar with Vales Kamzere already beaten.
