Be Forward Wanderers wasted late chances in the TNM Super League on Sunday to draw 0-0 against Dwangwa United at Balaka Stadium.
The Nomads striker, Zicco Mkanda was handed his first start as Coach Bob Mpinganjira made two changes to his previous squad that defeated Nchalo United 2-0 on Saturday.
For instance, Mpinganjira introduced Mkanda for Esau Kanyenda, while Dennis Chembezi replaced Francis Mulimbika in defense.
Despite a late rally in which substitute Julius Kajembe could have snatched victory, the Nomads also missed a penalty in the first half from Joseph Kamwendo after Mkanda was brought down inside the box.
Dwangwa have also themselves to blame for failing to secure a goal, especially in the 30th minute when face to face with Richard Chipuwa, one of their strikers shot wide.
Dwangwa’s goalkeeper, Carlington Misomali produced an even better save to tip Peter Wadabwa’s curling shot around the post before Chipuwa did the same to deny Dwangwa in the 42 minutes.
On Saturday, Wanderers were on cloud nine as they defeated Nchalo United 2-0 at Mangochi Stadium.
The Nomads scored through Isaac Kaliati and Peter Wadabwa.
Wanderers is fourth with 18 points, as Silver Strikers are on the summit of the table with 25 points.
