Peter Mponda’s Wizards on Monday inflicted another pain on Zomba based soldiers Red Lion by beating them 1-0 in a TNM Super League encounter at Kamuzu Stadium, Blantyre.
Wizards claimed their first three league points through Patrick Phiri who scored the only goal for the game with a thunderbolt shot a few metres from the centre line in a 50th minute.
Wizards deserved to win the game at all cost considering the scintillating, attractive and high tempo brand of football they played. Red Lions were also beaten by Nyasa Big Bullets in their second 2016 league game.
Recently Wizards welcomed into the fold Cuthbert ‘Kanyama’ Sinetre, Jacob Ngwira and Eneya Banda who was let go by Nyasa Big bullets.
Super League of Malawi (Sulom) allowed Wizards FC are back in the top flight following Dedza Young Soccer’s decision to withdraw from the promotion play offs aimed at identifying the 16th team for the upcoming 2016 season.
Sulom’s Vice President Daud Suleiman said Wizards FC automatically earned promotion since they won their opening game against Airborne Rangers before the injunction was served.
Dedza lost the case when Sulom’s appeals committee ruled that the body made no mistake by coming up with the play offs decision saying it was constitutional.
