Be Forward Wanderers yesterday moved two places up to eighth in the TNM Super League after coming from a goal down to beat Ntopwa FC 4-1 at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
Following the win, the Nomads now have 16 points from 11 matches, eight points adrift of leaders Civil Service (Civo) United, who have played a game more.
It was the first time for the Lali Lubani Road outfit to register back-to-back victories this season following their 3-0 triumph over Chitipa United on Saturday at the same venue.
On the other hand, fresh from a 0-4 thumping at the hands of Civo last Sunday, Amaghetho Kids were determined to bounce back and started at full throttle, taking the lead just after the half hour mark through Hendrix Misinde.
But once the Nomads shrugged off some early lethargy, they were in cruise control with captain Alfred Manyozo Jnr and Rafick Namwera imposing themselves totally at the heart of the pitch.
It, therefore, came as no surprise when Peter Wadabwa cancelled the lead in the 43rd minute before Nigerian lanky forward Babatunde Adepoju added the second just before half time.
Both teams made changes in the second half, but it was the Nomads who were on song and added two more goals through right back Stanley Sanudi and substitute Isaac Kaliyati.
To add salt to injury, Ntopwa had a chance to reduce the deficit late into the match when they were awarded a penalty, but Mphatso Magaleta’s spot-kick was saved by Nomads goalkeeper Richard Chipuwa.
Ntopwa have dropped a step to 10th in the 16-team top-flight league.
They have 14 points from 12 matches, having won four, drawn two and lost six.
Ntopwa technical director Isaac ‘Jomo’Osman said his charges were put off after conceding two goals in succession.
“From then on, they were demoralised and never recovered. Nevertheless, we will not give up, but we have a lot of work to do.”
On his part, Wanderers coach Bob Mpinganjira said: “It was a good game. We started slowly, but we picked up towards the end of the first half.”
