It’s one out of six for Be Forward Wanderers.
The Nomads’ poor run in the 16-team TNM Super League continued yesterday when they were held to a frustrating goalless draw by rookies Dwangwa United at Chitowe Stadium in Dwangwa, Nkhotakota.
The result capped a disappointing outing for the Nomads who the previous day lost 2-1 to league leaders Mafco FC.
And the Nomads fans, craving for relief following the previous afternoon’s setback, were sorely disappointed by a frustrating stalemate that left their team clinging to ninth position with 24 points from 19 games in the 16-team league.
Both teams were reduced to 10 men towards the end of the match when Benson Manyozo for Dwangwa and Wanderers’ Ishmael Thindwa were shown red cards following a physical confrontation.
However, Nomads team manager Stevie Madeira had no kind words for Dwangwa, claiming they were out just to frustrate his team.
“They did not have any meaningful purpose but just to frustrate us,” he said.
But Dwangwa coach McDonald ‘Nginde’ Mtetemera expressed satisfaction with the result.
“Of course, we would have loved to win, but the league is getting hot and we have to be content with what we have got from today’s match,” said Mtetemera whose side remains third from the bottom with 16 points from 19 games.
At Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre, Red Lions beat Azam Tigers 1-0 courtesy of Kevin Katema’s strike. The Zomba-based soldiers have now moved two places up to 11th with 19 points from 19 games while the Kau-Kau Boys are now eighth with 29 points from 20 matches.
Kamuzu Barracks also beat Mzuzu University (Mzuni) FC by a similar margin at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe while Civo United’s winless streak in the second round continued yesterday when they were held to a goalless draw by Moyale Barracks. n
