Forget the loss, Blue Eagles coach tells players

Blue Eagles coach Derklerk Msakakuona has urged his charges to forget their 1-2 loss to Silver Strikers on Sunday and focus on forthcoming TNM Super League matches.

“We need to forget the loss and move on,” Msakakuona said. “We need to be strong mentally if we want to win the league.”

The cops face a tricky match as they host Nyasa Big Bullets in a Presidential Cup round of-16 match at Nankhaka Stadium in Lilongwe tomorrow.

Eagles are considered as perennial underachievers as they start the league on a high, but lose steam in the final third of the season.

On Sunday, Mathews Sibale gave the Central Bankers the lead when his glancing header beat John Soko at the near-post on the 40th minute before Thuso Paipi’s late stunner sent Silver up to third with 13 points from seven games.

Eagles netted the consolation through Wister Phiri from a well curled free-kick on the edge of the box. Eagles still top the league with 18 points from seven games.
