Chirwa made sure of the victory for the Nomads right in the first half as he completed his brace in the 26th minute to send the Nomads into the round of 16.

Wanderers continued to control the rest of the first half with Stanley Sanudi, Isaac Kaliati and Felix Zulu displaying beautiful football to the excitement of the Nomads fans that thronged Balaka stadium.

In the second half the Nomads made a number of substitutions but still managed to control the game and maintained their 3-nil lead to the end of the match.

After the match, Gaddie Chirwa was voted man of the match.
