Mighty Be forward Wanderers lost two players in the first half of the clash but Silver STRIKERS were far from their best as the two giants played out a fairly uneventful goalless draw.
Wanderers regained their spot at the TNN Super League’s summit but they seem to have lost two first team players through injuries ahead of Blantyre Derby next week.
The result sees Oscar Kaunda’s men move to first position with 26 points but they have a superior goal deference over second place Kamuzu Barracks.
Silver Strikers were unable to take advantage of Wanderers’ injury crisis which could be viewed as a missed opportunity.
It was a balanced affair in the first half but both sides failed to create clear chances.
Injuries were the main talking points before the break with Wanderers having to bring Denis Chembezi and William Thole for Harry Nyirenda and Nenani Juwaya who picked injuries.
Wanderers nearly broke the deadlock midway in the first half but Brighton Munthali used his legs to block Francis Mlimbika’s freekick before Mike Robert cleared the ball for corner kick to prevent Nyangulu from a rebound.
The home side had decent chances in the second half through substitute Kondwani Mwaila who was denied twice by Thole who made excellent savès.
Wanderers thought they had taken the lead when Vincent Nyangulu weak shot in the six yard went wide.
Nyangulu later on squandered two clear chances for Mighty Beforward Wanderer.
Wanderers coach Oscar Kaunda was satisfied with the result “it was a tough encounter, we missed chances but the result is just oky” said Kaunda
While Silver Strikers Team Manager Itai Nundwe said they deserve a win ” we deserve to collect maximum points today but we failed to utilise our chance”
