Wanderers will not give up in Malawi TNM Super League title hunt, insists Kananji

Mighty Be Forward Wanderers coach Elijah Kananji has dismissed the idea of a crisis at Lali Lubani Road and insisted his side are still in the TNM Super League title hunt.

Kananji says he feels his team can push for title challenge in the second round after a disappointing weekend which left them trailing in the wake of the league’s pacesetters Big Bullets.

The Nomads came from behind to force Moyale Barracks to a 1-1 draw.

The Nomads are currently second in the table and four points behind leaders Big Bullets but Kananji feels a good run in the second round can propel them back into the race.

“At the moment our rivals Big Bullets are ahead with four points,” Kananji said. “They have not been spectacular but efficient, and they have made the maximum of the chances they have created.”

Kananji tried to calm any fears there is a crisis undermining his team.

“We will come back in the second round. Now we a game to wrap up the first round away in Zomba against Red Lions, and I think we have a chance to come back. But of course it is vital for us to do well in this game,” he said.

The Nomads face Red Lions away on Saturday and Kananji is sweating on the fitness of left back Francis Mlimbika, who is doubtful with a groin alongside other players like Jabulani Linje, Ted Sumani, Malumbo Gondwe and Victor Mpinganjira.

In Mlimbika’s absence, Kananji has been using Stewart Gerald to operate as a left back.

“Mlimbika has a groin injury and he is a big doubt,” Kananji said.

He said his side needs to find a balance between defence and attacking, saying the blue will bring some positives in the remaining fixtures.

Striker Jabulani Linje is definitely out after the former Civo United player suffered a harm string during their game against Big Bullets some weeks ago.

Kananji, who won the title as coach for Big Bullets last season, has vowed to fight to the end in the TNM Super League title race.

No, @ least you can still aim for title but not win the title. This not jealous but reality. What is happening is that you coach is not coaching for games, he is coaching for Bullets. With that nothing can work, even players; you have good ones but unfortunetely they are playing for market am a BB fan and a footbal supporter at the same time. Look @ Silver; there target was to punnish an innocent team like BB by extorting players and c them today! Tha very same good players today they are not ticking.
