Mighty Wanderers have apologised to their fans for the humiliating 3-0 defeat they suffered at the hands of their bitter rivals Big Bullets on Saturday in a TNM Super League match.
The Nomads general secretary David Kanyenda and influential midfielder Joseph Kamwendo admitted that the loss was embarrassing.
Kanyenda, who spoke tough prior to the match and predicted a 2-0 win, swallowed his pride and acknowledged that Bullets were by far a better side.
“I would like to apologise to all nyerere (Wanderers fans) for the painful defeat. The margin of the loss was shocking.
“Losing to Bullets is always painful and the boys are gutted, but suffice to say, we will pick ourselves up and try to win the remaining games.
“We still have six games to play, which is 18 points at stake, and we will fight every inch of the way,” said Kanyenda.
He dismissed suggestions that his team is out of the Super League title race.
“We still have a mathematical chance and we will see what will happen in the end,” he said.
On his part, Kamwendo also admitted that the Nomads were completely outplayed.
“Congratulations to Bullets, they were a better side on the day,” said Kamwendo.
Bullets general secretary Higger Mkandawire taunted the blue side of town saying: “Mankhwala ophera nyerere apezeka ndipo akutchedwa Gaba.”
Mkandawire said the win was a timely New Year present to their fans and it keeps them in contention for the league title.
