Moyale Barracks scored a stoppage time winner as they beat Mighty Wanderers 1-0 in a TNM Super League match at Mzuzu Stadium Sunday.
The result means Wanderers have returned to their Blantyre base with three points from two matches after beating rookies Ekwendeni Hammers 2-1 at the same venue on Saturday.
Llyod Njaliwa scored a stoppage time winner for the soldiers.
However, the Nomads were left ruing missed chances after Vincent Nyangulu and Yinusa Sherriff failed to find the back of the net.
Wanderers Coach Bob Mpinganjira attributed the defeat to fatigue.
“We did not play our usual game. It was a very different one from yesterday’s game against Ekwendeni Hammers. Moyale were playing long balls which frustrated our players and we had a lot of problems settling down. It was very difficult and we missed some clear chances because we failed to settle in time. This is just the start; we will do well,” he said.
On his part, Moyale Assistant Coach Pritchard Mwansa Was pleased with the result.
“We struggled in the first half but after pep-talk we settled quickly. The win is good for us considering that we were not doing well before the break,” he added.
The Nomads are on position 11 on the log table with 10 points from nine matches whereas Moyale are on position 13 on the log table with nine points from 10 matches.
At Nankhaka Stadium, Ranken Mwale also scored the lone goal of the match as Civil Service United beat Blue Eagles 1-0.
Following the win, Civil have dislodged Capital City rivals Silver Strikers at the summit of the log table.
Civil have 20 points from 10 matches, just one point above Silver, who will be in action today against TN Stars at Silver Stadium.
Elsewhere, Chitipa United claimed maximum points after a 1-0 win over Mafco FC who drew 2-2 with Karonga United on Saturday.
Khumbo Ng’ambi came off the bench to score the winner. Ng’ambi turned from hero to villain after he was sent for an early shower for two yellow cards.
Bob Longwe had his penalty saved by Mafco goalkeeper Jailosi Kapalamula in the first half.
The result means Mafco returned from Karonga with a point from two matches.
Action will continue this afternoon as defending champions Nyasa Big Bullets host Mighty Tigers at Mpira Stadium in Chiwembe Township in Blantyre.
Bullets kept their title defence alive with a 3-0 thumping of Mzuzu Warriors at Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday whereas Tigers were on bye.
