Franco Ndawa lauds players

Civil Sporting Club Head Coach, Franco Ndawa, has heaped praises on his charges for maintaining top form in the TNM Super League race.

“I am happy that the players are working hard to get the results,” Ndawa said in a post-match interview at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe on Saturday.

He said this after Civil had swept aside Moyale Barracks 3-0 to move up to fourth spot with 28 points from 17 games.

At the start of the season, Civil were considered relegation candidates, but now they are championship contenders.

Civil also beat the soldiers by a similar margin in Mzuzu in the first-round.

Fletcher Bandawe scored the opener after seven minutes in the first-half before Raphael Phiri and Righteous Banda put the game beyond Moyale’s reach in the second-half with the other goals.

It was Coach Nicholas Mhango’s first game for Moyale since he returned to the club after a two-year break due to military assignments.

Mhango said he was not surprised by the result.

“I expected it because it was the first game for me. I have seen the way the players performed. When we go back, we will see how to address the challenges,” said Mhango whose side had to thank goalkeeper Juma Chikwenga for denying Civil more goals.

Elsewhere, Blue Eagles thumped Premier Bet Wizards 4-1 at Nankhaka Stadium in Lilongwe, thanks to Mphatso Philimon’s brace, with the other goals coming from Chisomo Chilasa and Maxwell Salambula
