Mighty Wanderers FC have accused Sulom of deliberately plotting their downfall in their weekend TNM Super League games.
The Nomads came back from the capital with a single point out of a possible six, having lost to Blue Eagles 1-0 on Monday and drawn 1-1 against Epac FC on Sunday.
Nomads chairperson George Chamangwana accused the flagship league body of favouritism.
â€œThey deliberately gave us two games in Lilongwe barely a week after we had also travelled to the capital to play the Standard Bank Knockout Trophy final match against Silver Strikers.
â€œSilver, whom we met in the finals, were deliberately put on bye so that they could have ample time rest and that was tantamount to match-fixing and favouritism,â€ said Chamangwana.
He argued that as a result of that, some of their players who were with the Flames ended up playing in three consecutive games.
However, Sulom general secretary Williams Banda argued that the fixture was prepared before the Standard Bank Knockout finals.
â€œIt was not by design that Silver were on bye. They [Wanderers] got the second-round fixture sometime back and if they go through it, they will realise that every team will rest on a certain weekend and for a start, it was Silver,â€ said Banda.
