Struggling Mighty Tigers are confident of escaping TNM Super League relegation despite being stuck among the bottom three for the better part of the second round.
Tigers Coach Trevor Kajawa said this after his charges surrendered a goal-lead to draw with Karonga United 1-1 at Mpira Stadium in Chiwembe Township, Blantyre on Sunday.
“It is a bad result to us because we wanted full points. Nevertheless, we should give credit to the boys; they played well. It is unfortunate that we lost concentration in added time, which gave them a chance to equalise. Anyway, it is part of the game. We need to work hard to get three points but it is a painful draw.
“It is a high mountain to climb but we are slowly climbing. Of course, we are not losing games; we just need to pull up our socks,” Kajawa said.
Karonga Coach Dan Dzinkambani was satisfied with the result, having defeated Red Lions 1-0 on Saturday at the same venue.
“My players were exhausted having played another tough game on Saturday. It is a fair result for us,” he said.
Tigers are on position 14 with 19 points from 23 games while Karonga lie on position four with 36 points from 23 games.
Blessings Banda gave Tigers the lead before Anthony Mfune equalised late in the second half.
