Azam Tigers, poor run in the second round of the TNM Super League continued on Sunday after they lost 1-0 to Moyale Barracks at Kamuzu Stadium.
Despite impressing in the first round where they finished second behind leaders Big Bullets, Tigers have struggled in the second round and they are yet to register a win.
Moyale scored through Lloyd Njaliwa to collect maximum points as the Lions of Kaning’ina moved to position seven one ahead of Tigers. Both teams have 32 points each but Moyale have played 25 games one more than Tigers.
Tigers coach Gerald Phiri, speaking to the media after the game, said they were still searching for solutions after a dismal performance in the second round.
“We are trying our best but we are failing to get the results we are looking for. Anyway this game is gone and we will look ahead to the next fixtures. Hopefully we will get it right. If we win three games we will move up the table. It hasn’t been easy but we will fight to the end,” he said.
Bullets top the table with 57 points from 24 games while Mafco, who defeated Civo 3-0 through a Richard Mbulu, hat-trick, lie second with 46 points from 25 games. Silver Strikers are third with 42 points from 26 games.
