Be Forward Wanderers yesterday brought to a halt PremierBet Wizards FC’s unbeaten run in the TNM Super League with a 0-1 victory at Mulanje Park.
Nomads’ blossoming winger Felix Zulu netted the priceless goal for the LaliLubani Road side who have now taken their tally to six points from two games, having beaten champions Kamuzu Barracks (KB) 2-0 in their opening fixture.
They are now ninth on the log table, having played fewer games compared to other teams.
Wizards are still second with 11 points from six games, just a point short of leaders Red Lions who were held to a goalless draw by Azam Tigers at Zomba Community Centre Ground.
At Civo Stadium in Lilongwe yesterday, Silver Strikers beat KB 2-0. Ghanaian forward Mike Mensah Tetteh was the toast of the day for the Bankers after claiming a double in the second half.
There was not much to write about in the first half as both teams played some disjointed football much to the displeasure of the fans.
It was once again a disappointment to the defending champions who are now on an unenviable 12th position in the 16-team league with four points from four games.
Silver coach Lovemore Fazili was delighted with the win.
“It’s been a hectic three weeks of non-stop football. We can’t maintain the same rhythm. The good thing is that we got the goals and that is what matters most. We hope to continue winning,” he said.
Silver are now 10th with five points from three games
On his part, KB coach Billy Phambala blamed his players for loss of focus.
“The concentration was not there and that let us down,” he said.
At Kalulu Stadium in Nchalo, Chikwawa, Nyasa Big Bullets’ revival continued to gather momentum when they registered their third successive victory after beating Mzuzu University (Mzuni) FC 2-0.
Bright Munthali and Fischer Kondowe were on target for the People’s Team who have now climbed up to third with 10 points from five games.
In other games, Mafco FC and Masters Security played out a 1-all draw at Dedza Stadium. Paul Phiri was on target for the Salima-based Malawi Defence Force (MDF) side while Sam Gunde scored for the Masters.
At Mzuzu Stadium, rookies Chitipa United winless streak continued when they lost 0-1 to Moyale Barracks.
KhudaMuyawa scored the lone goal through a penalty in the 35 minutes which was awarded after a Moyale player Wiseman Kamanga was fouled in the 18 yard box.
Chitipa anchor the table with a point from six games.
