Tnm Super League

Capital City giants in a ‘do make or break battle’

Capital City football rivalry will be back in fold when traditional bragging rights are on play on Sunday during TNM Super League when Civil Service United will rock horns with current league leaders, Silver Strikers at Civo Stadium in Area 9, Lilongwe.

Could it be Civil’s year to use home advantage to contain the pressure and come out of shell to register the first defeat of the season to the Central Bankers?

Maybe it will be the usual fixture fulfilling but the visiting Bwandilo Boys have an advantage over their rivals looking at their rich form of vein.

Civil had travelled to Blantyre last Sunday where they were beaten 3-0 by Mighty Mukuru Wanderers with Christopher Kumwembe claiming a hat trick while Leaders were held to a painful 2-2 draw after leading the game twice and the last minute strike by the hosts was a killer punch.

Civil are lying on position seven with 14 points from 10 games while Bwandilo Boys are leading with 26 points from the same number of game and head to head record favours the Bankers but 90 minutes will tell. 

Silver to replicate their form against Civil

Kamuzu Barracks will came face to face with FCB Nyasa Big Bullets at Civo Saturday on Saturday coming from a 0-0 draw against Baka City in Karonga.

Bullets displayed luckless football against Creck Sporting despite creating close chances to earn them maximum points.

From a draw, training boycott and snatching of team bus by sheriffs of the High court due to non-payment of court ruling characterized the people’s team’s week in short.

From the grapevine, there are indications that Bullets’ shameless performance for the past 10 weeks was that some players were involved in match fixing where they were receiving cash from some officials from their rival clubs.

The issue is with Bullets officials for further investigations and the said players are said on danger of having their contracts terminated or face no renewable. 

Lifeless Bullets squad have largely depended on scoring prowess of young and promising winger Patrick Mwaungulu who had scored five goals this season while their main strikers are on goal drought.

His imminent departure to TP Mazembe of Democratic of Congo (DRC) alongside Lanjesi Nkhoma should be cause for worry for Bullets title defensive.

Bullets back at Civo Stadium on Saturday

Third placed mighty Mukuru Wanderers, the only that will be looking for a winner over Mighty Waka Waka Tigers.

The Kanjedza Boys are reported to be playing a more attractive football under their coach, Leo Mpulula and they attack in numbers.

Count yourself as winners after 90 plus minutes because they are more danger especially in the dying minutes of the game as evidence when they stopped hot contenders, Silver Strikers at Mecca Stadium before faithful Ganyu fans.

Tigers have pulled two surprised draws against Bullets 1-1 and Silver 2-2 at Kamuzu Stadium while Nomads have a task to change the pattern. 

However, Wanderers have maintaining their two winning streak against Premier Bet, Dedza Dynamos 3-1 and Civil Service United 3-0 with Meke Mwase at the helm.

The following are full fixtures for the weekend kicking off at 2:30 pm.
