Dwangwa aim for top 8 finish

Dwangwa United Team Manager, Davie Mwandira, has said his side is targeting a top-eight finish in the TNM Super League.
Dwangwa struggled for a good part of the league’s first round, resulting in the sacking of head coach Macdonald Mtetemera who was replaced with former Nyasa Big Bullets coach, Lloyd Nkhwazi.
The lakeshore side lies 12th on the log table with 31 points from 27 games.
Mwandira said, based on the team’s performance in recent games, including the 2-0 win over Mafco, there is a general belief that a top eight finish is possible.
“We sat down as a team and agreed to set targets for ourselves. We are now fighting to achieve those goals. It is possible for us to win our remaining games and take advantage of any slippages by teams that are above us on the log table. That is how we intend to break into the top eight,” Mwandira said.
But while Dwangwa continue to harbour ambitions of making the top eight, one of the oldest teams in the league, Azam Tigers, has given up on the possibility of making the grade.
Tigers Technical Director, Robin Alufandika, said his team’s performance has slumped in recent matches; hence, finishing in the top eight is not possible.
“We have a game to wind up the season but we are on position 11 with 31 points. We must admit that, this year, nothing worked for us. It has been a disappointing year because we are always used to being among the top eight teams and it is sad that we are finishing outside the top eight, especially at this time when we are looking for sponsors,” Alufandika said.
Finishing the season in the top eight bracket will make teams automatically qualify for next season’s Airtel Top 8 Cup whose top prize is K15 million.
