Mighty Mukuru Wanderers have displaced their bitter rivals, FCB Nyasa Big Bullets on the TNM Super League summit after thrashing rookies, Bangwe All Stars 2-0 at the Kamuzu Stadium Saturday afternoon.
They now have 14 points as Bullets take on Civo Service United tommorow in an away tricky fixture. The visitors looked more dangerous in the first half. Bullets youngsters on loan at All Stars, Chikumbutso Salima and Emmanuel Saviel enjoyed possession up front but lacked fire power. They repeatedly proved clueless on utilizing scoring chances.
Their long balls in the 18-yard box did not bother height-advantaged defenders, Miracle Gabeya and Lawrence Chaziya. They cleared and blocked the balls with much ease.
Certainly, experience paid dividends for the hosts. Wanderers scored through their talisman, Christopher Kumwembe from a close range in the second half after a barren first half. His captain, Stanley Sanudi doubled the lead on 63 minute from a penalty spot.
Their coach, Mark Harrison says he is impressed with the performance but doesn’t agree with the second yellow on his striker, Gaddie Chirwa who was given marching orders for diving.
His counterpart, Mavuto Lungu admits they have some ground work to do and say will go back to the drawing board to correct the mistakes observed today.
Misheck Botoman won the Man of the Match accolade again. Nonetheless, Bullets have the chance of toppling the Nomads if they beat the civil servants, who are mostly hard nut to crack when playing at their backyard.
In other league matches, Blue Eagles have shared spoils with Kamuzu Barracks after a one-all draw while Karonga United and Extreme FC had a barren encounter.
