Question Kabul to Kandahar March & Battle of Kandahar

Folowing the disaster at MAIWAND Lord Roberts organised a Column, to march the 300 miles, to relieve Kandahar, bring Ayoub Khan to battle; and finish the 2nd Afghan War. The lessons of Maiwand had been learned and Robert's plan of action worked.
What then was the difference in tactics that brought defeat to the host of tribesmen??

Exclamation Re: K-K MARCH & BATTLE OF KANDAHAR

THere were only three British Infantry Regiments inolved in Lord Robert's 300ml March from Kabul to Kandahar ie. 2/6oth Rifles,72nd and 93rd Highlanders- the remainder were Gurkha and Indian Regiments plus Cavalry.
