As the 2023 Tnm Super League season draws near, Civil Service United Football Club, one of the teams fighting for relegation, says it will utilize remaining home games to maximize their survival chances.
The Civil Servants are on position 14 with 25 points from 24 games, three points shy from 13 placed Mighty Tigers who have played one more game.
From the previous five games, CIVO has managed to get a single point.
But the team’s assistant coach Wilson Chidati says CIVO’s journey in the country’s top flight league is not over yet, as the team’s survival chances are there.
Speaking on Wednesday at Rumphi Stadium after losing 1-0 to Moyale Barracks, Chidati said they will capitalize on remaining home games to increase their survival chances in the league.
“We are left with two away games, one with Bangwe in Blantyre, and Ekwendeni Hammers at Rumphi stadium, the rest are home games. We have hope that if we utilize the four home games, it will be a plus for us,” said Chidati.
Chidati added that the team’s poor performance has been a result of lack of creativity in the final third.
“This has been our greatest challenge in a few of our previous games. We can create chances, and we are able to defend well. But the challenge is scoring. We will go back to our drawing table so that we can collect maximum points in our next game,” added Chidati.
Other teams in the relegation zone include Extreme Football club who are anchoring the table with 14 points from 24 games, Red Lions on position 15 with 21 points from 24 games.
