Dwangwa United have attributed their recent top form in the TNM Super League to unity.
The lakeshore side has posted two back-to-back wins over Lilongwe giants Civil Sporting Club and Silver Strikers in the past two weeks by 1-0 scorelines to move up to 13th on the log table.
The two results took Dwangwa’s record to three wins and one draw in four games of the second round.
Dwangwa assistant Coach, Ladwell Mbetewa, said there has been unity of purpose in the team since the second round kicked off.
“There has been a spirit of oneness among players, members of the technical panel and the executive committee since the second round kicked off. We are all pulling in one direction. Everyone understands their role and we work for each other.
“There is also maturity among players unlike in the first round. There has been tremendous improvement in the standard of play. The coming in members of the new executive committee has also improved things as they are providing the required support to the team,” Mbetewa said.
Mbetewa said they had set a target of winning five more games to be safe from relegation.
“We are indeed a rejuvenated side but there is need to continue winning. We should not relax as we have a long way to go. However, our players now have self-belief and everything seems to be working,” Mbetewa said.
Dwangwa are yet to lose in the second round, having beaten Civil, Masters Security, Silver and shared spoils with TN Stars.
Newly appointed Chairperson, Victor Mangochi, said they were impressed with the team’s performance.
“We are very pleased with the results and hope this will attract sponsors,” Mangochi said.
Dwangwa’s resurgence has been against the odds after losing eight key players towards the kickoff of the current.
The team has 18 points from 19 games.
