Sulumba became a hero of the day coming in as a super substitute for Jabulani Linje to score the priceless goal that decided the finalists.

It could not have been sweeter than this for the Lali Lubani outfit reaching their second successive cup in a month.

The victory has somehow pacified their fans who were agitating for the coaches blood after a slow start in the Super League having lost three consecutive games.

Wanderer’s team manager Steve Madeira manager applauded his charges for putting up a brave fight to soldier on in the competition, just days after their archrivals Bullets FC.

Madeira also hailed Linje for showing steady improvement after bouncing back from a three-month injury.

“I would like to thank the boys for putting up a great fight. It was not that easy for us as Blue Eagles were equally good,” Madeia said.

Wanderers are now on a collision course with Civo United who handed them their first loss in the second round of the Super League three weeks ago.

Civo bundled out favourites Bullets coming from behind to win 2-1 at Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday.


Blue Eagles coach Deklerk Msakakuona said they went down fighting to a better team.


"It was a tough match as expected and I am happy for my boys who gave Wanderers a good run for their victory.
