Be Forward Wanderers aim for a first Kamuzu Stadium TNM Super League win in three games when hosting Moyale Barracks today.
While Wanderers have a perfect away record of three wins and three draws, the same cannot be said about the home statistics of four wins and two defeats. The Nomads go into this match on 24 points from 12 games.
First, Silver Strikers breached Wanderers record with a 2-0 beating that was followed by a damaging 2-1 loss to Big Bullets—yet another title contender and traditional rival.
A 2-1 beating of Max Bullets in Carlsberg Cup national round match was followed back-to-back last week by a slender 1-0 win over Airborne Rangers at Kalulu Stadium.
So, the two consecutive results achieved through the brilliance of Mapopa Kaunda merely served to confirm the near-perfect form of the Elia Kananji squad. If called to duty, Kaunda is ready to come on and do what he knows best, scoring.
Muhamad Sulumba’s availability and all-round display of Nelson Kangunje suggest the Nomads are capable of salvaging something; otherwise a loss, let alone a dropped point, would even be more damaging to Kananji.
Moyale step onto the pitch a little bit exhausted as they lined up against speedy boys of Fisd Wizards yesterday. n
