After one of their most comprehensive displays this season in a 4-0 demolition of Wizards at Kamuzu Stadium on Sunday, Be Forward Wanderers coach Eddingtone Ng’onamo can afford to dream about the league championship.
Rafik Musa, Francis Mulimbika, Jafali Chande and Peter Wadabwa scored on Sunday for Wanderers, who are now six points behind leaders, Silver Strikers. The Nomads have 20 points from 11 games.
Goalkeeper Richard Chipuwa has helped solidify the defence whereas Chande and Wadabwa have kept the goals flowing upfront.
Barely a month ago, the Nomads seemed clueless as the team blew hot and cold. However, Ng’onamo who swapped roles with technical director, Jack Chamangwana, seems to have found team-chemistry.
“Our aim is a top-three finish, maybe top-two and why not even the championship. The players are applying what I teach them in training. For example, we have been practicing a lot of long-range shots and against Wizards, we scored some goals from range,” Ng’onamo explained.
For Wizards, who are fourth from bottom with 12 points from 12 games, assistant coach MacDonald Yobe described the results, which means that they have not won in three straight games, as their worst this season.
