Kawowo Sports Ismael
Kiyonga
rates Jonathan McKinstry’s soldiers.

Denis
Onyango 6.5:
He had little to deal with besides the
save to deny Gabadinho Mhango but provided leadership from the back.

Nicholas
Wadada 6.0:
He defended well but offensively, his
crosses were wanting.

Joseph
Ochaya 6.5:
He was defensively astute and the few
times he went forward, his deliveries could have yielded an assist.

Bevis
Mugabi 5.0:
Deployed at his preffered centre back position
and rarely put a foot wrong although the pace and trickery of Yamikani
Chemster.

Murushid
Jjuuko 5.0:
He was calm and collected at the heart
of defence until he was hauled off after suffering an injury.

Khalid
Aucho 5.5:
He combined well with Mike Azira in the
centre of the pack but later suffered an injury that saw him replaced by Taddeo
Lwanga.

Mike
Azira 7.5:
He dictated play with his long and short
range passes and did make the Cranes tick. Arguably, the Man of the Match.

Luwagga
Kizito 5.5:
He started slow but improved as the
Cranes gained grip on the game. He created a beautiful chance for Miya which
the latter missed before he was replaced by Allan Okello.

Farouk
Miya 4.0:
His effort and energy was on show but failed to
replicate his club form.

Fahad
Bayo 6.0:
He scored a centre forward’s goal with calmness and
composure to make up for his missed opportunities in the first half.

Emmanuel
Okwi 6.0:
He opened the scoring with a good goal and he
tracked back to defend when Cranes attacked.

Substitutes

Timothy
Denis Awany 5.0:
Surprisingly left out of the starting
eleven but came on for injured Jjuuko and did well.

Allan
Okello 5.0:
A nervous debut for the young lad but
rarely troubled the experienced Malawi defence.

Taddeo
Lwanga 5.0:
Replaced injured Aucho and did well.
