Silver trounce Moyale, as Reds shoot to the top

Silver vs Moyale

Trouble refuses to depart from Mighty Wanderers as they went down 2-0 to Karonga United at Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday.

While already swimming in a pool of financial hurdles, the team has performance issues to settle in the TNM Super League barely weeks after supporters stormed it's club house demanding answers for the poor run.

While the Symon Sikwese led executive committee is trying to resolve the issues, including finding sponsorship following the departure of Be Forward Wanderers last month, the Northern Region-based side had other plans to add on the misery.

Sheriff Shamama single-handedly outclassed the blue side to score a brace that took Karonga to seventh-place with 11 points from seven games.

It remains coach Bob Mpinganjira's task to help the Nomads stuck on position 11 with only six points from six games.

Mpinganjira said the team lacks the scoring instinct.

"Today we worked contrary to our game plan. The guys were not coordinating and I accept we had problems. But we shouldn't not lose hope," he said.

Next for Karonga is Ntopwa at Chiwembe Stadium on Sunday as coach Dan Dzinkambani hopes to return home with six points from the region. 

Chiwembe Stadium on Saturday hosted an all-soldiers affair where Red Lions beat Kamuzu Barracks 2-1 to return to the top of the league.

Lions, who have been dominating the table for some weeks were dislodged by Silver Strikers last week.

Ronald Pangani and an own-goal by Sam Chibvunde gifted the Zomba-based soldiers the maximum points at their backyard while Zeliat Nkhoma scored the consolation for the visitors.

With 17 points from eight games, the lions lead the table, of course a point above Silver Strikers.

Their glory could however be short-lived if Civo Service United beat another struggling side Moyale Barracks.

KB are 12th on the table with six points from six games, but have a task to face Nyasa Big Bullets on Sunday at Kamuzu Stadium.

Silver Strikers foiled Moyale Barracks' invasion into its territory after smashing the soldiers 5-1.

While aiming to build on their last week's first win against Blue Eagles, Moyale started on a high note at Silver Stadium courtesy of an early goal by Gastin Simkonda.

The goal provoked the Bankers who rained showers of goals on the visitors scoring three times before the half time whistle.

Maxwell Fasten and Stain Davie scored a brace each, while Duncan Nyoni netted once.

Chitipa United's winless run continues as they went 4-0 down to Blue Eagles at Nankhaka Stadium.

Chifuniro Mpinganjira's brace and Paul Master's goal ensured the lions of Chitipa start their Central Region tour poorly as they head to Kasungu to face TN Stars on Sunday.

While in Mzuzu, new entrants Ekwendeni Hammers netted thrice to beat Mzuzu Warriors at Mzuzu Stadium.

Joseph Mbewe and Clever Kayira scored a brace and one each respectively.
