League leaders Be Forward Wanderers have attributed their continued good run in the TNM Super League to their aspirations to participate in Caf Champions League next year.

The Nomads returned to the summit of the log table on Sunday with a 1-0 win over Mzuni, courtesy of Jafali Chande’s goal.

The victory took Wanderers’ tally to 34 points, two points ahead of second-placed Silver Strikers. Both teams have played 14 games each.

Newly-elevated Wanderers Chairperson, Gift Mkandawire, said the team was working hard to achieve its dream of winning the league title for the first time since 2006 and qualify for the Champions League.

“Winning the Super League is our only way of qualifying for the Champions League. We need to continue bagging the points so that come December, we lift the title,” Mkandawire said.

He said the team is also determined to become league champions as a tribute to the legacy of departed chairperson, George Chamangwana.

“We are united as a family to achieve the very best we can so that the spirit of the late George rests in eternal peace. He dreamt about winning the league and we want to do it for him,” Mkandawire said.

Malawian clubs have kept shying away from continental club competitions while their counterparts in neighbouring countries such as Zambia, Mozambique, Zimbabwe and Tanzania do not miss out.

Nyasa Big Bullets were the last club to have played in the Champions League in 2014.

Bullets managed to get past Fomboni of the Comoros Islands but failed to continue in the competition after losing to Sudan’s Al Hilal.

Pundits have attributed the Flames’ poor performance to local clubs absence from the Caf Confederation Cup and the Champions League.
