Mighty Be Forward Wanderers failed to stick to their winning ways when they drew 1-all against Dwangwa United in a game the super league returnees side missed many chances.
The Nomads were coming from a win against Silver Strikers while the rookies lost in the league opener to Blue Eagles.
Luke Milanzi scored for the Nomads in the 39th minute before Chifundo Tawiha’s header settled the affairs at the stroke of half time.
The home side had started the first ten minutes on a high note with Nigerian forward Amos Bello missing seater just as his fellow Luka Milanzi failed to tap in close to the left frank.
A lowly taken flick in the sixth minute from Bello saw Milanzi failing to make a needed tap to beat Dwangwa keeper Philimoni Barnet who had already been beaten close to the far right post.
At the midfield battles between Benson Manyozo for the visiting side had on several times beaten Mike Kaziputa to set his front man Zikani Kasambara who forced the Nomads keeper Nenani Juwaya to make scintillating saves.
Dwangwa’s defence was kept under pressure with sublime attacks from Kaziputa who had switched to the left wing and supplied through balls to Jabulani Linje who lacked the finishing.
And the visiting side had gotten settled and given the home side tough time in the midfield but thanks to a cheerful display by Rafiq Mussa, the Nomads contained the pressure.
It was scrappy play as it seemed the teams were heading to half time without goals.
But the Nomads had kept on the pressure on the shorter looking Dwangwa boys no wonder they were awarded a free kick close to the 18 yard box after ex Nomads player Omegadihno knocked Mussa from behind.
A well taken freekick met Dennis Katshire who cleared the ball off the box, and made a poor back pass to Barnet and fed Milanzi who had all the goal wide to slot home for the Nomads.
Just as the Nomads thought they would go into halftime on the lead a well taken freekick from the left side of the pitch met Tawiha who did not make a mistake but produced a thunderbolt header past a reckless Juwaya who had not communicated well with the defenders on a possible clearance of the ball.
And just after fifteen minutes in the second half, the Nomads made two changes pulling off Rafiq Mussa for Sadick Ibrahim and Linje for Peter Wadabwa.
Four minutes later Namwera scored after he shot past Bernet but at his effort the flag was already up for offside-and the Nomads fans short lived the celebrations.
The match was all nothing but scrappy and lack of attacking power which lacked in the visitors saw them making two changes taking off scorer Tawiha and fellow striker Kasambara who got replaced by Davie Chadewa and Josphophat Kwalira respectively.
The Nomads continued to miss a couple of chances and when Bello was only about to beat Dwangwa’s keeper in the 28th minute he was brought down in the box but referee Francisco Scova waved play on to the dismay of the Nomads supporters and fans.
The visitors were perhaps driven to attack more by their lowly taken shots all failed to put them of the lead as they shot wide.
With just a minute left, Dwangwa missed what was arguably the best chance of the match when Kwalira flicked just wide when Juwaya and Nomads defenders had already been beaten from a counter attack.
Wadabwa could have put the Nomads in the lead but he was ruled for an offside when he only remained with a flick to make.
But at the end of it all, the teams settled for a 1-all draw to the dismay of team manager for the Nomads Steve Madeira who blamed the result for a scoring jinx.
He also said the team should have killed off the match in the first half- possibly tilting the remark to complacency by the players.
His counterpart Macdonald Mtetemera hailed his boys for the comeback but said the match helped them note a few areas they have to improve. They play Maxi Bullets on Sunday at the same venue.
In other matches, Blue Eagles who won over Dwangwa last week beat Epac 2-1 while Moyale Barracks thumped fellow soldiers Kamuzu Barracks 3-1.
And woes continued for Silver Strikers continued as the lost 1 nil at home to Azam Tigers in Lilongwe.
