TNM Super League leaders, Blue Eagles, are targeting three new players to bolster the squad in the second round.
Eagles’ assistant coach, Wilson Chidati, said his side needs reinforcements if they are to challenge for the league title.
“We are planning of adding two or three players from the lower leagues, mainly a goalkeeper and two strikers as John Malidadi Jnr is prone to injuries,” Chidati said without disclosing the identities of the potential signings.
In Malidadi Jnr’s absence, forward Maxwell Salambula has been an outstanding player for Eagles having netted eight goals, including two hat-tricks in the first round.
“We play as a unit. The players and the technical panel also work as a family,” said Chidati, whose side has never won the league championship.
Despite the departure of key players, John Banda and Schumacher Kuwali, to Mozambican teams, Eagles defied all odds to finish as the first round’s winners with 32 points from followed by Silver Strikers on 29 points.
Rookies Max Bullets, Dwangwa United and Karonga United are stuck at the bottom of the log table.
