Civo United target 2nd round win


Civo United h o s t unpredictable Mzuni today at Civo Stadium with one simple mission—to return to winning ways in the TNM Super League second round.

Civo have gone two consecutive games without a win in this round, hence are desperate for a win.

The civil servants miserably lost 1-4 to Blue Eagles at home, before they were held to a goalless draw by Kamuzu Barracks in a dull encounter played at the same venue last Sunday.


If they beat Mzuni on Friday, it will be their first home victory in the second round despite starting on good note after beating Fisd Wizards and Be Forward Wanderers by 1-0 margins.

On Thursday, Civo coach Oscar Kaunda was brimming with confidence that they will collect maximum points against Mzuni.

“Our preparations have been going on well and all the players are ready for the match. We are not underrating Mzuni because they are still a good team,” Kaunda said.


Civo will welcome back defence pillar, John Lanjesi, who was an unused substitute in Tanzania when the Flames lost 2-0 in a Fifa World Cup preliminary qualifying round match.

On his part, Mzuni coach, Alex Ngwira said his charges are ready for the showdown.

“We respect Civo as one of the big teams, but if they underrate us they will be shocked,” Ngwira said.

Ninth-placed Civo have 23 points from 18 games, whereas Mzuni occupy position 13 with 16 points from the same number of games.

In another match today, Airborne Rangers host Moyale Barracks at Chitowe Stadium in an all soldiers’ affair.

Rangers and Moyale are also without a win in the second round. The Salima-based soldiers are stuck in the relegation zone on position 14 with 13 points, whereas Moyale are 10th with 20 points from 17 games.
