Sting to the tail

Be Forward Wanderers, with their coach Eddington Ng’onamo conspicuously absent, gave away a two-goal lead in the last seven minutes to settle for a 2-2 draw against battling Moyale Barracks at Mzuzu Stadium on Monday.

The result, that must have hurt the Nomads like a defeat in this TNM Super League game, left them on ninth position with eight points from seven games, whereas Moyale are fifth with 11 points.

Reports suggest that Ng’onamo, who replaced Jack Chamangwana last week, did not travel to Mzuzu due to personal reasons.

After the game, Chamangwana refused to talk to the media, but Team Manager, Steve Madeira, faulted a lapse in concentration.

“It is very unfortunate. It is the same thing that happened when we played against Red Lions when we conceded three goals. The only difference in that game was that we scored many goals and they could not catch up with us, but Moyale caught up with us,” Madeira said.

Moyale coach Collins Nkuna said he, during pep-talk, told his charges to play down balls and pile the pressure on Wanderers’ defence.

During the game, winger Isaac Kaliyati put the visitors ahead a minute after kick-off before Peter Wadabwa added the second from the penalty spot in the 20th minute of the second half after being fouled by Lovemore Mitengo.

However, Moyale pulled one back 19 minutes later through Lloyd Njaliwa, before Khuda Muyaba completed the dramatic come-back from the dreaded spot in added time.

On Saturday, Wanderers also drew 0-0 against bottom-placed Karonga United.
