Defending champions Be Forward Wanderers kept the pressure firmly on Super League leaders Nyasa Big Bullets with an efficient 3-0 victory against Blue Eagles on Saturday at at Kamuzu Stadium.
The Nomads cut the lead at the top to just four points with this win, but they are third with a point behind Silver Strikers.
Isaac Kaliati scored the first goal in the 15 minutes before Esau Kanyenda and Francisco Madinga registered their names on the scoring sheet.
Kaliati headed the ball home from a beautifully floated ball into the penalty box from the evergreen Joseph Kamwendo,who was also voted man of the match.
Kanyenda as well scored through a header while Madinga well curved shot was enough to sink the law enforcers.
The Malawi Police Service outfit 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 Francis Mulimbika.
Blue Eagles created scoring opportunities in the second half but oops! their striking force which was ked by Maxwell Salambula was so blunt.
Eagles tried to make some changes in search of an equaliser but it made little impact.
However, Wanderers substitutions which saw the coming in of Rafiq Namwera, Francisco Madinga and Misheck Bottomani accelerated their gear as the Nomads entertained fans with briliant passes.
After the match, Blue Eagles coach Deklerk Nsakakuona conceded the defeat and said it was a bad day in office.
“We accept we have lost that’s part of the game but we never expected to lose. In short we lacked coordination that is why we ended up conceding those goals after missing alot of scoring opportunities,” said Nsakakuona.
His counterpart Bob Mpinganjira was all smiles after collecting maximum three points.
“It has been a very good game.Our perfomance is also something worth celebrating for and l must salute my players,” said Mpinganjira.
