Mighty Wanderers failed to collect the desired six points that coach Felix Fosco had hoped for in their games against Epac FC on Sunday and Blue Eagles on Monday.
Instead, the Nomads managed a point only from their 1-1 draw against Epac as they lost 1-0 to Eagles.
It was a bad start to the second round by Wanderers who are basking in the glory of winning the Standard Bank Knockout Trophy.
â€œToday (Monday) it was really a tough game but on Tuesday I think a draw was not a fair result. We did dominate play and had the most chances, but the boys failed to translate them into goals. It is a bit frustrating,â€ said Fosco.
He had faith in Joseph Kamwendo and captain Foster Namwela despite the two being involved in national duty against Ghana on Saturday.
Wanderers are fourth on the log table with 27 points from 15 games.
However, for Blue Eagles, the win was a revenge for their 2-0 defeat in the first round.
â€œIt could have been better if we had won 2-0, but we have to be satisfied with the three points we have managed here,â€ said Eagles coach Deklerk Msakakuona.
Eagles now have 21 points from 15 games.
Silver Strikers continue to top the chart despite not playing at the weekend. They have 31 points from 14 games, Red Lions have 29 points from 15 games whereas Big Bullets are third with 28 points from 15 games.
Bvumbwe Research are at the bottom with 12 points from 15 games. Kabwafu FC are 14th with 13 points while Escom are 13th, also with 13 points.
