Nomads mentor proves critics wrong, secures 1-0 victory over Blue Eagles

BLANTYRE(MaraviPost)—Mighty Wanderers mentor Gerald Phiri, who endured insults last week after the team conceded a defeat to Azam Tigers, left Balaka Stadium on Saturday with a smile on his face after securing a deserving 1-0 victory over Blue Eagles in the TNM Super League.

Blue Eagles, who have 34 points, were poised to dislodge the Mzuzu based soldiers Moyale Barracks on the summit but the 30th goal from Cuthbert Kanyama Sineta was enough to shatter the Eagles’ dream of topping the league.

After displaying a slouch performance in the first half, Blue Eagles started the second half with more hunger for an equalizer and they came wave after wave in the Nomads half.

However, the Nomads remained resolute and successfully tamed the attacks through their solid defence which saw Francis Mlimbika producing a man-of-the-match performance.

The victory complements well with the promise of the newly appointed technical director Yasin Osman who vowed to reclaim the lost glory for the Rali Lubani Road boys.

Speaking after the match, Wanderers coach Phiri said he was happy with the win and thanked his charges for playing well.

Reacting to insults which he endured last week from the team’s fans after being defeated by Tigers, Phiri said “As a coach, I’m used to such things.”

Apart from denying the Lilongwe Eagles a chance to go top, the win has pushed the Nomads to position 8 on the log table of the country’s elite league.

In other games, Silver Strikers whacked the struggling Blantyre United 3-1 at Kalulu Stadium. Peter Wadabwa, Chawanangwa Kawonga and Frank Banda scored for Silver.

In Mzuzu, Moyale drew 1-1 with Azam Tigers while Civo United beat Airborne Rangers 2-1 at the Chitowe Stadium.

Sunday’s fixture: Big Bullets VS Silver Strikers, Epac VS MAFCO, Blantyre United VS Blue Eagles, Karonga United VS Azam Tigers.
