Mufulira Wanderers coach Justin Chinama is gutted that Mighty’s anticipated promotion back to the Super Division has been delayed following the abandonment of Sunday’s crucial match against Chambishi.
This week 28 match of the FAZ Division One Zone Two was called off three minutes away from time with the teams scoreless due to crowd trouble at Chambishi Stadium.
Mighty were seeking the valuable three points against Chambishi to secure promotion before referee Vernon Nyambe was forced to discontinue the game after objects were thrown on the pitch.
“It is unfortunate that we had incidences of fans misbehaving. I think they should have allowed the game to go on and end normally. The way it has happened our promotion will be derailed,” Chinama said.
Wanderers lead Zone Two with 62 points from 27 matches played while second placed Indeni have 57 points from 28 matches played and Chambishi are now third with 56 points.
Mighty now need a point from the last two matches to secure promotion.
“We will remain focused; we will try to psyche our boys so that we work hard and win our next game against ZNS Lwamfumu,” Chinama said.
Meanwhile, Chambishi Vice Chairman Augustine Simusokowe said:”Let us wait for the Match Commissioner to write a report then we will see.”
