Kamuzu Barracks rue missed chances
Kamuzu Barracks FC (KB) Assistant Coach, Temwa Msuku, was left ruing missed scoring opportunities in a 1-0 loss to rookies Ntopwa FC in a TNM Super League match at Civo Stadium on Saturday.
The soldiers have been inconsistent in the second round this season and were punished by Mphatso Magaleta’s second half strike to drop valuable points.
Msuku was not pleased with his charges, lack of composure in front of goal.
“We created a lot of chances than them but we were not clinical. We do not know what happened to the players but we have to forget about it and focus on the Fisd Cup game this week,” he said.
With four matches to finish their season, KB are out of the title race as they have 39 points, 10 points behind leaders Nyasa Big Bullets, who have played 23 games just like second placed Be Forward Wanderers.
The soldiers have a chance to win silverware this season as they face Hangover FC in the semi-finals of the Fisd Challenge Cup.
KB last won silverware in 2017 after beating Moyale Barracks 1-0 in Fisd Challenge Cup final but they won their first -ever TNM Super League title in 2016.
As KB were mourning the defeat, it was good news for Ntopwa coach Trevor Kajawa whose side desperately need points to escape the drop zone in their debut season.
Kajawa said the away victory has boosted the team’s chances of surviving in the Super League.
“I told the players to fight for their life in the league. The players know that they have to win the remaining games and I am happy they are doing the job,” he said.
In other results on Saturday, Masters Security free-fall continued when they lost 2-1 to Civil Sporting Club whereas Karonga United beat Moyale at Mzuzu Stadium.
