Nomads refuse to press panic button
Be Forward Wanderers coach Elia Kananji has refused to press the panic button ahead of a potentially explosive encounter against Big Bullets set for Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday.
Wanderers failed to overtake Bullets after they were handed their first-ever defeat for this season when they went down to Silver Strikers 0-2 at Kamuzu Stadium on Sunday.
Kananji said Nomads would address the flaws before they meet Bullets.
“It was just a bad day. We had our chances but we didn’t utilise them. It does not mean that we are bad. We have noted the areas that need polishing and we will work on these,” he said.
Striker Muhammad Sulumba had a bad day as he let down Nomads supporters after missing about three chances.
Meanwhile, Silver coach Stain Chirwa has thrown his support to Bullets.
“We had to win at all cost to stop Wanderers from going too far. Obviously, we would want Bullets to carry the day because they are not too far,” he said.
Barely seconds after Sulumba fluffed a golden scoring opportunity, Silver forward Green Harawa arrived on time to put the bankers in the lead.
Harawa capitalised on defensive mix-up between goalkeeper Richard Chipuwa and Francis Mulimbika to put the bankers in the lead in 57th minute. The Nomads duo had failed to deal with Peter Wadabwa’s cross.
Silver extended the lead in the 76th minute, when former Bullets midfielder Victor Limbani connected home a corner from Ian Banda to secure the points.
