Our play was not impressive—Ng’onamo


By Isaac Salima:

Mighty Mukuru Wanderers Technical Director Eddingtone Ng’onamo has said he needs to work on his team’s frontline if they are to stand a chance of progressing further in the FDH Bank Cup.

Ng’onamo said this on Saturday at Kamuzu Stadium after his side defeated Kamuzu Barracks Reserve (KB) 4-1 through post-match penalties to book a place in the competition’s round of 16.


“We need to sharpen our striking force. We also need to work on our defence. I am not impressed with how the team played in the second half because we allowed them to come back into the game. We could have scored more goals in this game and that’s one thing we need to work on,” Ng’onamo said.

The rookies had to come from behind from two goals down to force a two-all draw in regulation time to take the game into dreadful penalties.

Wanderers converted all their four spot-kicks while KB missed two and scored one for them to bow out of the competition.


After the game, some Nomads supporters vented anger on the technical panel over tactical flaws they noticed.

The supporters questioned the introduction of Francis Mlimbika and Muhammad Sulumba for Joseph Balakasi and Vitumbiko Kumwenda, respectively, at the beginning of the second half.

The substitution seemed to have weakened the Nomads’ defending and attacking rhythm and eventually allowed the visitors to get the equalising goals.

But Ng’onamo said the changes were tactical.

KB Reserves Coach Dennis Kambewa said they had learnt a lot after the defeat.

“We need to be resilient throughout and not to be afraid when playing against big teams,” Kambewa said.
