Mighty Mukuru Wanderers FC


Mighty Mukuru Wanderers FC has displaced Chitipa United FC on third position following a 1-2 victory over sixth placed Ekwendeni Hammers FC at Mzuzu Stadium on Wednesday.

Head Coach Mark Simon Harrison addressed the media after the midweek fixture.

On his excitement with the win

It was really a tough game today. I mean the field is totally unplayable but both teams tried to play as much as they could. I think they [Ekwendeni Hammers] are one of the better teams in the league to be honest with you. They are one of the best teams we have come up against, credit to them. Today our boys were brilliant and we deserved to win. We could have scored two or three more in the end but we take the points and move on. We got another tough game on Saturday against Chitipa in Karonga, we will have to recover in time for that, it’s not going to be easy but I am sure our boys are ready.

On the secret to Wednesday’s victory

Look, that’s our game, that’s how we play. Whether we are home or away, we try to play the same way. We try to create opportunities and our season has been that we are not taking opportunities but today we took a couple and we missed a good couple. We were more of a threat than they were but at the same we we had to be on our guard despite conceding a goal which l felt we shouldn’t have conceded. They had two or three half chances as well and it was a good game on a field that is unplayable.

On collecting maximum points against Chitipa United on Saturday

Look, I am not that type of a guy who will say anything before we go there. I know it will be tough game and they [Chitipa] are playing well. They have won all their games at home this season. I look at their stats, they are a threat but we have to go there with the same mentality we had today. If we do, then we give ourselves an opportunity; this is all I can say at this point. I am not going to stick my neck out and say we are going to get three points. I am not that presumptuous, we are just going to work hard and see what we can get.

Man of the match Vincent Nyangulu opened the score sheet in the 56th minute before Vitumbiko Kumwenda doubled the lead in the 66th minute following a Francisco Madinga assist. Ekwendeni Hammers pulled one back through Wongani Lungu at the stroke of 70. Following the win, the Nomads now have 32 points and they could go top on Saturday should they beat Chitipa United on Saturday at Karonga Stadium.
