Civo United players must fight


Civo United players need to humble themselves and focus on saving the club when hosting Blue Eagles at Civo Stadium today in one of the civil servants’ remaining make-or-break TNM Super League fixtures.

Stuck in the relegation zone with 21 points from 24 games, five points below safety, Civo must find an immediate solution if they want to survive in the Super League beyond this season.

If they win all remaining games, Civo’s maximum points will be 39 against fellow relegation contenders, Dwangwa United, Premier Bet Wizards and Karonga United’s 38, 41 and 34 maximum points, respectively.


Pressure continues to mount on Civo players and the technical panel, who are still searching for their first win of the second round.

Civo desperately need points in their remaining fixtures, which include away matches against Nyasa Big Bullets and Kamuzu Barracks (KB).

Coach Charles Manda has failed to turn things around having replaced Millias Pofera in the middle of the season.


But Manda has refused to throw in the towel, saying they would survive the chop.

“We need to fight like wounded buffaloes because the games are so important for us. We desperately need points and the players are aware of the challenge ahead of us,” Manda said.

This fixture is also important for Eagles who are also looking for a return to the top of the table, Assistant Coach, Wilson Chidati, said.

“No sympathy in football. By the look of things, the league belongs to Eagles,” Chidati said.

Without injured Gregory Nachipo, Gilbert Chirwa, Alupheous Nyoni, Elia Kabingu and Gio Banda, Eagles will pin their hopes on Maxwell Salambula, Philip Masiye and Stuart Mbunge whereas Civo will rely on Nelson Kangunje, Victor Mpinganjira and Blessings Kawanga.

KB lead the league table with 49 points from 26 games, just a point above second-placed Bullets and Eagles.
