Mighty Mufulira Wanderers shift into second place

Sports Mighty Mufulira Wanderers shift into second place

Mufulira Wanderers moved into second place on the FAZ Super League table on Sunday after coming from behind to beat National Assembly 2-1 in their first home match of the campaign at Shinde Stadium in Mufulira.

Wanderers have now garnered six points, one behind leaders Choma Eagles, after two wins and a loss.

Ten-man Mighty’s striker Moses Nyembe came off the bench to head in the winner ten minutes away from full time after defender Charles Shamujompa had cancelled Aaron Sakala’s early goal.

Sakala tapped in from close range to put Assembly in front and silence home fans at Shinde Stadium after 13 minutes .

Five minutes after the restart Shamujompa equalised from the spot after Assembly’s Evans Mwanza brought down Jacob Ngulube inside the box in the eyes of Kitwe referee Gladys Lengwe.

Wanderers left it late to score the winner with Nyambe who had replaced Brian Ambungeni heading in Lameck Silwaba’s cross from the box.

Earlier in the 71st minute Mighty were reduced to ten men when Erick Chibuye who replaced Nicholas Kamocha in the 43rd minute saw red for a second yellow.

Meanwhile, Mighty’s next game is against champions Zesco United away in Ndola.
