Mighty Be Forward Wanderers FC continues to head TNM Super League after beating Kamuzu Barracks (KB) 1-0 in a match played at the Balaka Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
It was game that required to have good muscle as it was physical game, Nomads’ defender Harry Nyirenda gave in just 5 minutes from kick-off, he was stretched off after sustaining an injury in the face.
But experience of veteran striker and former Flames and Polokwane City international striker Esau ‘Black’ Mamba Kanyenda, penetrated through howwa -howwa defence of KB to score the only goal of the match that handed the Nomads maximum three points.
Speaking in a post-match interview, Wanderers Head Coach Yasin Osman depicted not to expect the win, he was delighted.
“It was a very difficult game but we needed to win as we were coming from a loss in the Carlsberg Cup final. We played well in the first half but failed to tick in the second half but all in all I am happy that we managed to collect maximum points” said Osman.
Osman also sounded optimistic for their next game against Blantyre united, as he said they are going to win it.
While KB coach Billy Phambala was in full agony, he blamed all on poor poor officiation.
“We played well particularly in the first half but we were let down by the incompetent referee who officiated the game. We could have equalised and even won the game in the second half but the referee was biased and helped the nomads in making actions that delayed time. He was making alot of strange decisions and I don’t know what is wrong with this referee; he seems not to know anything about football,” said Phambala.
Wanderers still leads the log table with 38 points from 16 games.
