The Nomads celebrating a win
Seeing is believing so they say. Not many of the fans who congregated at Nankhaka ground will doubt the possibility of the nomads clinching the title come the end of the 2016/2017 TNM Super League, come December.
The FISD Cup defending champions displayed an awe inspiring performance at Nankhaka ground against a Blue Eagle’s side that was eager to maintain its record as the only side unbeaten at home.
Man of the moment, Esau Kanyenda, opened the scoring on the 27th minute and later on killed the game on the 88th minute with a volley when Eagle’s goalkeeper John Soko had mistakenly played the ball to him.
The police side had to contend the fierce nomads with ten men as they had their captain, Mecium Mhone, sent off on the 70th minute as he was shown a second yellow card on grounds of indiscipline.
The eagles came close to scoring in the first half with a long range effort from seasoned midfielder, Philip Masiye, which went wide by a few inches.
Nevertheless, the nomads would have led by two goals at half time had Peter Wadabwa been clinical in front of goal when keeper Soko had left the line. All that was needed was to slot the ball into the net.
To add firepower in attack, eagles coach, Audlow Makonyola made a double substitution. The tactician bought in John Malidadi Jnr to replace Mphatso Philimoni and Gilbert Chirwa for Oswald Manga but that was all in vain for the nomads defense proved resolute.
