By Lwazi Dlamini

Fervently supported hub giants, Manzini Wanderers moved to position 11 on the MTN log standings, seven points off the relegation trapdoor after beating Nsingizini Hotspurs 2-1 at King Sobhuza II Memorial Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

Nsingizini Hotspurs, who lost 1-0 to Moneni Pirates last Saturday at Mavuso Sports Centre, took the lead through Lwazi Bhembe in the 16th minute only for Amos Adefemi Layode to net the equalizer ten minutes later.
