Salima-based military side Mafco FC on Sunday increased Mighty Be Forward Wanderers woes by inflicting a painful 3-2 defeat in a thrilling encounter at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
The visitors took the lead through a thunderbolt from Stain Malat, but their joy could not last long as nomads new signing from Bullets Jafalie Chande equalized after heading in a Mike Kaziputa well drove in corner kick.
This was Chande’s first league goal at Wanderers. Despite dominating the proceedings, the star studded Wanderers failed to create scoring enough opportunities.
They were totally disturbed by Mafco’s style of play of using long balls.
Mafco then netted the second goal through Zikhole Ngulube before defender Boston Kabango leveled the scores.
But it was Richard Mbulu’s late strike that broke the hearts of Nomads followers to seal his side’s victory to the disbelief of many Wanderers fans.
The win comes just a week after Mafco held defending champions Nyasa Big Bullets 2-2 at the Chitowe Stadium.
Wanderers supporters could not hide their anger as they chant anti-coach Jack Chamangwana song’s demanding his immediate firing.
Speaking after the match, it was all smiles for Mafco coach Thomas Maloya who hailed his charges for their hard working and fighting team spirit.
Mafco captain Paul Ndlovu described the win as a moral boost in their mission to win the league title after finishing second last season.
Wanderers coach Elia Kananji described all the three goals his side conceded as silly and cheap.
He went on to push the blame to goalkeeper of the day Bester Phiri for his poor showing.
Kananji said the nomads have assembled a good squad and it is unbelievable that they are struggling to win games.
So far the nomads have only managed to collect six points from five games and they sit on position 10.
At the Mzuzu Stadium, Blue Eagles continued their hundred percent perfect start to this season as they narrowly beat northern region giants Moyale Barracks 1-0 at the Mzuzu Stadium.
John Malidadi Junior scored the only goal of the match.
The win moves Eagles to 18 points from six games seven ahead of second placed Mafco FC.
