Wanderers secure second place

Mighty Mukuru Wanderers have secured the second place on the TNM Super League log table with 18 points following a resounding 3-0 victory against Civil Service United at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre, courtesy of Christopher Kumwembe’s hat trick which earned him the man-of-the-match accolade.

Wanderers’ interim coach, Meke Mwase, attributed this success to meticulous preparation and strategic execution.

On the other hand, Civil Service United’s Coach, Abbas Makawa, acknowledged the defeat but described the match as a closely contested affair.

“We made it difficult ourselves. We missed our chances, and Wanderers’ came in the game but we lost concentration at crucial moments,” Makawa admitted, pointing to the need for greater focus and resilience in future fixtures.

Meanwhile, the defending champions, FCB Nyasa Big Bullets, continue to grapple with inconsistent form, settling for a 1-1 draw against Creck Sporting at Civil Stadium in Lilongwe.

Patrick Mwaungulu gave Bullets the lead in the 59th minute, but Creck Sporting’s Gift Kadawati equalized in the 66th minute.

Bullets’ Coach, Calisto Pasuwa, acknowledged the need for improvement.

“We have a lot of homework to rectify our errors. The draw was disappointing, especially coming off a defeat,” Pasuwa commented.

For Creck Sporting, the draw was a huge achievement.

Now 6th with 15 points, Coach MacDonald Mtetemera expressed satisfaction.

“Extracting a point from the defending champions is a huge achievement for us. It shows the progress we’re making,” he said.

In the Northern Region, Moyale Barracks missed an opportunity to climb the table, remaining 7th with 14 points after a 2-0 defeat to Karonga United, who are now 10th with 12 points.

MAFCO improved their standing to 11th with a 2-0 win against relegation-threatened Chitipa United, who are 15th with 5 points.

Bangwe All Stars and Mzuzu City Hammers played to a goalless draw, while FOMO and Premier Bet Dedza Dynamos shared the points in a 1-1 stalemate.

This week’s matches were particularly poignant, following a brief hiatus due to the tragic death of former Vice President Dr Saulos Chilima and eight others in a plane crash at Chikangawa Forest in Mzimba on June 10.

In honour of the deceased, all teams playing on Sunday observed a minute of silence and wore black armbands.

Looking ahead, TNM Super League leaders Silver Strikers will return to action on Monday against Mighty Tigers at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.

Additionally, on the same day, 3rd placed Kamuzu Barracks will face Baka City at Karonga Stadium.
