Civo United Coach Charles Manda has admitted that he is still searching for answers as to why his side has performed below par since the start of the TNM Super League second round.
Civo lost by 1-0 margins to current leaders, Kamuzu Barracks, and second-placed Blue Eagles on Saturday and Wednesday, respectively.
The results have undermined Civo’s survival from relegation in the league this season as they are second from bottom with 21 points from 26 games.
Manda replaced Millias Pofera before the start of the second round, but Civo are still searching for their first league win in the second round.
“We are playing well but results are not forthcoming. As a coach, I do not know what exactly is happening to us at the moment,” Manda said after the loss to KB.
Some sections have questioned the players’ character, but Manda said he still has faith in the current squad.
“I don’t like criticising my players and I think they are doing well. All the remaining games will be like cup finals to us and we must do something special,” Manda said.
In the remaining games, Civo will play Nyasa Big Bullets, Mafco and Azam Tigers.
But following Max Bullets withdrawal from the league, Civo will be awarded three points.
The club’s vice-General Secretary, Ronald Chiwaula, was also confident that the team would survive the chop.
