The chopping and changing madness at the summit of the TNM Super League table continues with Blue Eagles taking their leadership turn after handing in-form Be Forward Wanderers a reality check Thursday.
Within a week, the league’s leadership has changed from Nyasa Big Bullets to Kamuzu Barracks (KB) and now Eagles, who soared two points clear after coming from behind to see off Wanderers 2-1 at Nankhaka Ground in Lilongwe.
Eagles stretched their tally to 48 points from 25 games after pushing down to second place previous leaders, KB, who have 46 points from 25 games.
At Nankhaka, striker Jabulani Linje put Wanderers ahead only for their former forward Victor Nyirenda to equalise for the hosts a few minutes later.
It was a timely response from Eagles who lost 0-1 to the Nomads on Saturday in a Fisd Challenge Cup semifinal at Kamuzu Stadium.
The first-half ended 1-1.
In second-half, Stuart Mbunge fired Eagles in front to end Wanderers’ six-game unbeaten run and hand Coach, Yasin Osman, his second loss in eight league and cup games.
Wanderers are stuck on sixth place with 41 points from 26 games—a hammer blow to their slim title aspirations.
However, the Carlsberg Cup kings can make it a double when they meet KB in the Fisd Cup final on December 10.
