Be Forward Wanderers put five goals past Moyale Barracks to leapfrog Silver Strikers into the top spot of the Super League.
The Nomads beat the soldiers 5-1 in a game that was played on Wednesday afternoon at Balaka Stadium.

Isaac Kaliati, Jafali Chande, Joseph Kamwendo and Peter Wadabwa (2) were on target to punish the Kaning’ina Soldiers while Khuda Myaba replied with a goal for the away side.
The win means Wanderers are leading the league with 31 points from 13 games, two points over second placed Silver
The result is also a warning to Moyale as the two teams will meet again in 10 days in the Carlsberg Cup semifinals.
