Painful draw for Wanderers
Be Forward Wanderers again suffered another painful day after they failed to collect maximum points for the second consecutive game in the central region.
After losing to Mafco 2-1 on Saturday, the Nomads fired blanks on Sunday when they drew 0-0 with minnows Dwangwa United in a match that took place at Chitowe stadium.
Nomads entrusted Richard Chipuwa in between the two goal posts. Key players such as Kondwani Lufeyo, Bongani Kaipa, Mike Kaziputa, Joseph Kamwendo, Peter Wadabwa and Jafali Chande also started.
The hosts Dwangwa United relied on the services of Barnet Philemon, Benson Manyozo, Gilbert Nkhokwe, Onesmo Mbendera, Thom Kamanga, Victor Harawa and Pilirani Chirwa.
A match which started on a slow pace saw the Nomads gathering gravity by giving tough time to Dwanga united boys as the services of Stanley Sanudi in defence, Felix Zulu in the centre together with Kamwendo compromised the hosts.
Sanudi and Zulu were the players of the day due to their tireless runs and proper contribution of beautiful balls to their mates.
With a barren first half, the two teams went for a break to come out with new tactics on how to win.
Come second half, the Nomads started beautiful passing and good attacking play no wonder they visited Dwangwa’s territory over and over again.
But they failed to turn any of their chances into a goal and the game ended 0-0.
Speaking after the game, Wanderers team manager Steve Madeira said the weekend has been bad for his team.
However, Madeira decried the unsporting behavior which were showcased by their opponents in their two games over the weekend.
“Several things need to change; we are looking as if we are a bad team when we travel because of some unsporting behavior that happened, the teams delayed the games too much.
“From the two matches that we had I think we were the only team that wanted to play the game the others came for a draw and defensive mind only,” he narrated.
In his voice, coach for Dwangwa united McDonald Mtetemera thanked God for the point though they were not planning to have a point.
“We thank God for what he has given us today, he prepared this for us for today as you see the team is just coordinating strongly now,” Mtetemera told the media.
“So soon we will be winning games, we didn’t expect to get a point today but all in all we thank God for the provision,” he added.
This means the nomads travelled back home with a single point from the two games they played in the central region.
