Yamikani Chester scored on his debut to take Wanderers through to the
Wafa Wafa final after beating rivals Nyasa Big Bullets 1-0 at Bingu
National Stadium(BNS) in Lilongwe on Saturday afternoon.
The former Azam Tigers midfielder scored the only goal of the match
at the 60th minute after Bullets defence failed to clear the ball.

other for a second time at BNS this year and Wanderers continued from
where they stopped having beaten The People’s team 2-1 in Bus Ipite
Bonanza in January.
Wanderers were the first to find their feet in the game and it was not
a surprise as Peter Wadabwa fired his shot over the bar after Bullets
defence failed to clear the ball.
Midway through the first half Bullets started playing their normal
game as they threatened the Yasin Osman boys using both wings.
The People’s Team had two goals from Muhamad Sulumba and Musa Manyenje
disallowed afte referee Duncan Lengani adjudged the two to be in an
off side position .
Wanderers started the second half with a bang and were rewarded as
substitute Yamikani Chester’s shot found the back of the net at the
60th minute after a blunder by Bullets’ captain John Lanjesi.
Sulumba had a chance to level the scores when he struck an excellent
shot but it went agonisingly wide of Valence Kamzere’s goal.
After Saturday’s win, Wanderers will now face Kamuzu Barracks who
beat Silver Strikers 1-0 in the earlly kick off.
Kelvin Hanganda scored in the second half to give the Super League
defending champions victory over the Central Bankers and book
