First-half goal from Vincent Nyangulu gave Mighty Wanderers victory over Silver Strikers in a TNM Super League match that took place on Saturday at Silver Stadium in Lilongwe.

In an open first half, the central bankers were first to threaten through Stain Davie and Blessings Tembo but Wanderers defense tried their best to denie the two an early goal.

Silver looked the more enterprising side early on but Wanderers broke through Nyangulu after receiving a pass from Stanley Sanudi.
