Kitwe United beat Mighty in relegation battle at Shinde

Sports Kitwe United beat Mighty in relegation battle at Shinde

Mighty Mufulira Wanderers’ battle for survival suffered a dent on Sunday when they sustained a 2-1 home loss at Shinde Stadium to fellow strugglers Kitwe United.

And it was Mighty who began brightly when John Goma put them ahead in the 2nd minutes as hopes brightened of ending their five-match winless run in which period they have only picked a draw.

But United hit back in the 53rd and 55th minutes through Robin Siame and Holly Songwe respectively.

However, United will be counting their lucky stars when Stanley Chalaba’s shot came off the post two minutes later and Goma missed a sitter on the hour mark.

United then has a Rodgers Mukenge 73rd minute goal disallowed for offside but they had already done enough to earn back-to-back wins this season over Mighty who were also the last team they beat 2-0 in Kitwe on February 16 before going on an eight-match winless run.

Mighty drop to second from bottom at number nine in Pool A on 9 points , exchanging places with United who have 10 points with five games left before the relegation places are confirmed.
