Silver fail to dislodge Wanderers: TNM Super League

Written by  Yamikani Simutowe

Lilongwe giants Silver Strikers failed to dislodge Mighty Be Forward Wanderers at the top of TNM Super League log table when they settled for a barren draw with Blue Eagles at Nankhaka Stadium on Sunday.


A win would have enabled Silver, widely known as the Bankers, to claim the top slot, but missed the opportunity as they only bagged a point from their second round opener to remain second with 34 points from 16 games.


Likewise, Blue Eagles are stuck on fourth position with 25 points from 16 games, three points behind third-placed Nyasa Bullets.

The Bankers is also the only side yet to taste defeat in this campaign.


They completed the first round with 33 points from 15 games.

In Mzuzu, Moyale FC claimed a 2-1 home win over Red Lions. Deus Nkutu and Khuda Muyaba scored for the home side while Mphatso Ngwira scored Red Lions' consolation goal.


Wizards FC equally lost 2-1 to Azam Tigers at Mulanje Park Stadium. Tigers netted through Bonda Mpinganjira and Luke Chima whereas Misheck Botamani netted for Wizards.

Blantyre United's hopes to remain in the top flight league were further shattered when they miserably lost two away games at the weekend.


They lost 3-0 to Dwangwa United and 3-0 to Mafco FC on Saturday and Sunday, respectively.

Mighty Be Forward Wanderers still lead the 16-member log table with 35 points from 15 games and are scheduled to kick off the second round campaign with a home assignment against Kamuzu Barracks.


The battle for points will continue on Monday as Chitipa United and Civil Sporting are scheduled to face off at Mzuzu Stadium.
