as stretch the lead 29 points

TNM Super League leaders, Silver Strikers on Sunday claimed bragging rights over their traditional rival, Civil Service United when they hammered them 0-2 at their own backyard in a Capital City derby at Civo Stadium in Area 9, Lilongwe to increase their points tally to 29.

The Central Bankers have consolidated their intent to claim the title after 11 years of absence when they used the second tactical change to break resilience of Civil’s play of tight marking as displayed in the first half.

Coming from a 2-2 draw against Mighty Waka Waka Tigers last Monday, Silver had to be careful with their rivals, Civil who got beaten 3-0 at the hands of Mighty Mukuru Wanderers.

The Servants should blame themselves for not utilizing two chances they had in the first half when Silver appeared to be playing second fiddle to them in terms of attacking football.

The Coming of Silver’s Chinsinsi Maonga and Charles Chapala for Duncan Nyoni and Atusaye Nyondo at the start of the interval made a huge difference and paid handsomely through their central defender, Innocent Shema header from a corner kick after 48 minutes.

Chapala planted home a cross from the left hand side to increase the lead to 2-0 after 66 minutes.

Civil kept their goal scoring machine, Emmanuel Savieli on the bench to the surprise to many, but when he was introduced into the game, the damage was already done because the Servants were failing to put their acts together.

The Bwandilo Boys are now eight points adrift of second placed Wanderers who are now with 21 points after beating Tigers 1-2 at Kamuzu Stadium.
