‘‘MIGHTY’’ Mufulira Wanderers yesterday failed to keep their must-win game dream when they were held to a 1-all draw by bottom-placed Lusaka Dynamos in a FAZ super division Week 9 match played at Lusaka’s Sunset Stadium
The teams were 0-0 at half time.
It was Dynamos’ Webster Muzaza who first found the back of the net in the 72nd minute but the goal was quickly cancelled by Wanderers four minutes later when Michael Katongo levelled for his team.
Wanderers captain Taonga Bwembya had assured his fans that this time round ‘‘Mighty’’ were looking for a winning formula.
Bwembya said Wanderers must start winning after a spate of poor results.
“Our performance has been below average as a team. We are working on that to improve, starting tomorrow when we face Lusaka Dynamos.
“This is a must-win game. Definitely we are going for three points because this is the time to start picking up points,” he said.
Wanderers are 13th on the table with nine points from nine games played, while Dynamos have six points from nine matches.
Meanwhile, Supersport reports that Zambia’s coach George Lwandamina has backed Kennedy Mweene to continue as Chipolopolo first-choice despite goalkeeper getting little game time at Mamelodi Sundowns this season.
Mweene has played just four league games and another two in cup competition for the 2015/2016 champions this term.
Uganda Cranes goalkeeper Dennis Onyango is now Sundowns preferred number one.
“He is still a member of the senior national team. I know a decision will be made at an appropriate time but as it stands now, he is still an active member of the team,” Lwandamina said.
“I know it is not good to continue with no-game time but I am sure that he has the experience which can help the team.”
Lwandamina added that it was not his job to tell Mweene to move on to another club in order for him to find game time.
“I can’t do that; He has to make his own decisions, he has been making his own decisions up to now and I have to respect that,” Lwandamina said.
Mweene, who joined Sundowns two seasons ago from Free State Stars, is expected to be Zambia’s number one for next month’s penultimate 2017 Africa Cup Group E qualifier away to Guinea Bissau.
