By Staff Reporter

Two first half goals from Isaac Msiska were all what Mzuzu City Hammers needed to claim maximum points from Mighty Mukuru Wanderers and dislodge FCB Nyasa Big Bullets on the second position of the TNM Super League log table.

Msiska found the opener for the home side 19 minutes from kick-off after connecting with a header a free-kick taken by Eric Kaonga.

Msiska completed his brace just a few seconds before the end of the first half with a simple finish following a communication breakdown between Wanderers defenders and goalkeeper William Thole.

After the match, Isaac Msiska who has now scored six goals from eight games, was voted man of the match.

The Hammers are now second on the log table with 16 points, three points ahead of third placed FCB Nyasa Big Bullets who are playing against Moyale Barracks on Monday.

This was the second loss for the Nomads this season after losing by the same margin to Silver Strikers last weekend.

Elsewhere, Silver Strikers extended their lead on the top of the log table following their 4-2 win against Karonga United at Silver Stadium.

The central bankers scored through Uchizi Vunga, Mark Fodya, Stain Davie, Chimwemwe Idana while Karonga got their score through Saulos Moyo and Nanison Mbewe.

The win means that the capital city giants have extended their lead to 6 points as they have now accumulated 22 points from eight games.

Karonga on the other hand are stuck on position 10 with 9 points from the same number of games.

At Chitowe Stadium, Mafco FC  beat rookies FOMO FC 1-0 courtesy of Martial Maluwa’s 71st minute goal.
