Sable Farming end winless run with 2-0 win over Mighty Tigers

Sable Farming ended a run of six games without victory by beating Mighty Tigers 2-0 at Mulanje Park Stadium on Wednesday afternoon.

Following excellent start of the first half, Sable took the lead after 10 minutes through Franklin Mlimanjala who made a simple finish inside the box.

The Macdonald Mtetemela’s side continued to dominate the midfield and creat numerical chances in the entire 45 minutes but they failed to utilize.

Christopher Gototo increased Sable Farming lead on 55 minutes after a good exchange of passes with Simion Singa and Mlimanjala.

The game changing moment happened midway in the second half when Tigers brought in Bright Ntondagowa and Henry Chiwaya for Iven Mwakapenda and Frank Chikufenji but they rarely threatened their opponents.

The Chiradzuru based side took over again the control of the game in the last 10 minutes when Mtetemela introduced Taniel Mhango for Emmanuel Lino but no further goals were added to the scoresheet.

It was the first win for the Chiradzuru based side in six matches and the first for new coach Macdonald Mtetemela who started with a 2-2 draw a fortnight ago against his former club Silver Strikers.

While Mighty Tigers have enhanced their winless streak to five games.

The win has helped Sable Farming to move from the bottom to 14th on the standings as they leapfrog TN Stars and Rumphi United respectively.

Sable Farming coach Macdonald Mtetemela believes the two-week international break has helped his team to improve.

“Iam happy for today’s performance, we scored 2 goals and avoid conceding any goal. I think the international break has helped me to understand my players and also to improve interms of defending but am really convinced with the type of play from my boys” – said Mtetemela

His counterpart Trevor Kajawa blamed lack of composure in front of goal.

He said “We could scored a goal or two goals today but we lacked sharpness upfront. The wings supplied a number of crosses especially in the second half but we failed to make use” said Kajawa
