BE Forward Wanderers Coach, Yasin Osman, has said pressure is on their closest rivals Silver
Strikers to play catch up in the TNM Super League race.
The Nomads edged out spirited Mzuni 1-0 to reclaim top spot on the TNM Super League log
Jafali Chande scored for Wanderers to hand Mzuni their sixth defeat in nine league games.
Silver will play Wanderers this Sunday in a decider for the league’s first-round race.
Ahead of the game, Osman said his side stands a good chance of finishing the first-round on top.
“It feels good overcoming Mzuni for the first time [in many years].
The secret was self-belief. Mzuni have not been doing well and that gave us the confidence that we could do better.
“Now we will finish the first-round with Silver Strikers. This result has put us in a better position going into the game against Silver. Pressure will be on them,” said Osman, whose team leads the log table with 34 points from 14 games.
His Mzuni counterpart, Alex Ngwira, was bitter that his side conceded cheaply.
“It pains to concedea goal that could have been prevented. The goalkeeper could have done better. Richard Chipuwa [Wanderers goalkeeper] stopped a similar effort,” he said.
Ngwira, whose team is on position 13 with 16points, has since asked for patience from his team’s supporters.
