Mighty Be Forward Wanderers yesterday survived by the skin of their teeth after coming from behind twice to force a 2-2 draw against Blue Eagles in a poorly attended Super League encounter at Kamuzu Stadium.
With the battle for the championship already decided, the attention is now on the runners-up spot and relegation battles at the bottom of the table.
Wanderers were hoping to increase the changes of finishing in top three, but a drab performance from the Lali Lubani side saw the visitors dominating the game.
Elia Kabingu put Eagles in the lead in 27th minute after curling a fine free-kick from the edge of the 18-yard box that beat Wanderers goalkeeper Peter Munthali.
But the Nomads responded well two minutes later through a Jabulani Linje volley.
Eagles restored the lead in 77th minute when John Malidadi tapped in from close range a rebound after Dan Phiri’s shot hit the post.
But loss of concentration saw the Malawi Police Service side give up the lead just a minute later after Steve Chagoma handled the ball in the box.
Substitute Luka Milanzi made no mistake from the spot beating Eagles goalkeeper John Soko.
Blue Eagles are still on position four with 37 points from 23 games while the Nomads are eighth with 32 points from 22 games.
At Chitowe, Mafco made Fisd Wizards’ relegation woes worse with a 3-2 victory over the rookies.
Second-placed Mafco now have 43 points from 23 games while Fisd Wizards are stuck at the bottom with 18 points. N
