No complacency, Yasin Osman cautions
Be Forward Wanderers Head Coach, Yasin Osman, has cautioned his charges against getting carried away with their perfect TNM Super League run of four consecutive wins without conceding.
“We have started brightly but that should not go into our minds. We need to be consistent throughout the season because there will be injuries and loss of form. But we have a big squad which can withstand such situations,” the veteran mentor said when asked about his side’s chances of winning the Super League championship.
Wanderers beat Dwangwa through substitute striker Peter Wadabwa’s goal then thrashed Mafco 3-0 at Civo Stadium on Sunday courtesy of Lucky Malata, Joseph Kamwendo and Yamikani Chester’s goals.
Osman admitted that his charges had a good run in Dwangwa on Saturday.
“They [Dwangwa] are a good developing team and surely, they will get it right. If they carry on with the fighting spirit they shown in the second-half, they will start winning games,” he said.
Wanderers, who last won the championship in 2006 under Zimbabwean Rahman Gumbo, moved up to second position on the log table with 12 points, at par with current leaders Red Lions.
Dwangwa Coach, Macdonald Mtetemera, drew positives from his team’s performance.
“I think in terms of performance, the team is doing fine. We just need to work on a few problems we noticed. I can see a great improvement compared to our previous games,” Mtetemera said.
In other games played over the weekend, Nyasa Big Bullets lost 1-0 to Blue Eagles in Lilongwe on Saturday before a goal-less draw against rookies Masters Security FC at Dedza Stadium on Sunday.
In Mzuzu, Silver Strikers beat Chitipa 2-0 before a goal-less draw against Moyale on Sunday. Elsewhere, Jide Mbandambanda scored a hat-trick for Blantyre United when they drew 3-3 against Azam Tigers at MDC Stadium in Blantyre. Luka Chima, Dan Kumwenda and Frazer Menyani scored for Tigers.
