Be Forward Wanderers have downplayed the danger of failing to maintain their five-point lead in the TNM Super League after collecting four points from a possible six in Mzuzu over the weekend.
The Nomads started their Northern Region tour with a 2-1 win over Mzuni on Saturday before sharing spoils with Moyale in a 0-0 stalemate at Mzuzu Stadium the following day.
Wanderers are still at the summit with 44 points from 20 games with Nyasa Big Bullets coming second after collecting 41 points from 19 games.
Coach for the Lali Lubani Road side, Bob Mpinganjira, said despite dropping two points against the soldiers, his charges were still good enough to win the title.
Mpinganjira said it was normal for a team at the summit of the log table to face pressure from fellow title contenders.
“There is nothing strange in facing pressure from our rivals as we are all aiming at winning the title. We might be dropping points but there are more games to play and we will recover to win more games.
“The league is still on. We have several games to go before winding up the season. We just have to concentrate on our next matches and win as many games as possible to keep our title campaign on track,” Mpinganjira said.
He said collecting four points was not bad considering that they played away against tough teams.
Moyale Coach Collins, Nkuna, said they were aiming at winning all their remaining assignments and finish in the top four.
“We need to push hard and climb to position four or five. We did not do well in the first round and we need to up our game. It is possible for us to join the top three in the next few weeks,” Nkuna said.
The Lions of Kaning’ina are eighth on the table with 27 points from 20 games.
