KARONGA-(MaraviPost)-Karonga United’s revival under Christopher Nyambose continued to gather pace after earning a hard fought 1-0 win over Wakawaka Tigers in a TNM Super League encounter on Saturday.

The match played in front of a sizable crowd at the Karonga Stadium was settled through a lone strike by Sheriff Shamama after only five minutes.

The victory lifted Karonga out of the relegation zone to 12th on the log table with 10 points to their name from 10 matches while Tigers remain in sixth with 15 points from 11 matches.

The match which was not a classic encounter by any means saw the home side just do enough to edge out the game led by the returning Mphatso Kamanga who was making his first appearance of the season after returning from trials in Turkey.

The hosts who played the most impressive football throughout the game should have won the encounter by more goals as they failed to capitalize on their first half dominance as chance after chance went begging to make things more comfortable for themselves.

Speaking in a post-match interview Karonga United coach Christopher Nyambose, hailed his side’s tactical discipline and defensive shape in the narrow win.

“I thought we were superb today from minute one and we should have won by more goals but the victory was well deserved from us today.” Said a smiling Nyambose.

However his counterpart Trevor Kajawa, bemoaned the officiating in the game attributing it to his charges defeat.

“Despite not being at our best the refereeing let us down today we should have been awarded a penalty from a clear hand-ball but the decision went against us because we were playing away from home.” He said.
