Azam Tigers coach eyes top 8

PHIRI—There is togetherness in the squad

Mighty Tigers Coach, Gerald Phiri Senior, is targeting a top eight TNM Super League finish following the team’s return to form.

“The new players have adapted to our style of play and there is togetherness in the squad. We believe that if we can win four out of the remaining six games, we can finish in the top eight,” Phiri said.

Tigers made it four consecutive league wins on Saturday when they saw off Mzuni FC 2-1 courtesy of Chikaiko Batison and Kondwani Chilembwe’s goals whereas Collen Nkhulambe scored the visitors’ consolation at Mulanje Park Stadium.


Goalkeeper McLean Mwale, attackers Chilembwe, Fatsani Chirikumtima, Frank Chikufenji, Happy Phiri and Fatsani Kaponya are among the latest arrivals for Tigers who have jumped to eighth place with 32 points from 24 games on the Super League log table.

Defender Boston Kabango has also re-joined Tigers.

Ahead of Saturday’s game, Tigers had defeated Dwangwa United 2-0, Karonga United and Savenda Chitipa by 1-0 margins on the bounce.


Kau have to, in the remaining games, play against tougher opponents such as leaders Nyasa Big Bullets (49 points from 23 games), second-placed Be Forward Wanderers (48 points), fifth-positioned Kamuzu Barracks (39 points from 25 games), Moyale Barracks (on ninth place with 39 points from 22 games), seventh-ranked TN Stars (37 points from 24 matches) and Masters Security FC (bottom with 17 points from 23 games).
