TNM Super League leaders Mafco have vowed to continue their winning streak as they invade the Capital City to face wounded Civo Service United at Civo Stadium on Sunday.
The Salima-based soldiers are the early leaders with nine points from three games.
They boast of having 100 percent winning record this season after beating Azam Tigers (1-0) Silver Strikers (3-1) and Dedza Young Soccer (2-0) in their first three games.
On the other hand, Civo are without a win this season after two losses and a draw from their three games.
They were beaten 2-0 by Red Lions in their opening match before a goalless draw against Airborne Rangers and last weekend they lost 1-0 at home to visiting Azam Tigers.
Speaking ahead of their clash against Civo, Mafco coach, Stereo Gondwe, said they were aware of Civo’s threat but was confident of winning the match.
“Playing Civo at home is always a difficult game, but the players are geared for the match. We are determined to maintain our winning streak this season,” said Gondwe, who is also Malawi beach soccer national coach.
For Civo to avoid a defeat, they must be clinical up front as they have shown lack of firepower in the last three games.
Coach Oscar Kaunda, admitted that he was let down by his strikers during Tigers match.
“We are able to create chances, but we are failing to convert them into goals. We have rectified the problems, so expect us to come strong in the next games,” said the former Kabwafu FC coach.
In other games, to be played this weekend, Azam Tigers host Blue Eagles at Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday. On Sunday, Surestream play Red Lions at Kamuzu Stadium, Dedza Young Soccer face Epac at Dedza Stadium, Moyale
Barracks host Mzuni at Mzuzu Stadium while Airborne Rangers will be in action against Kamuzu Barracks.
