Moyale Barracks blames Sulom for defeat


Moyale Barracks’ Coach, Collins Nkuna, has faulted Super League of Malawi (Sulom) for “too much rest time” on fixtures, saying it contributed to his team’s 0-1 loss to Blue Eagles at Mzuzu Stadium on Saturday.

“I do not understand how these Super League fixtures are done. We are remaining with many fixtures but you will find that we are playing this week and we will be playing again after two weeks,” Nkuna said.

“A team needs consistency to maintain its winning formula, but that is not the case at the moment. So, this is causing my team to lose coordination.”


Maxwell Salambula scored the only goal of the game with just 10 minutes on the clock to revive Eagles’ chances of lifting the 2016 TNM Super League title.

And the Lions of Kaning’ina’s mentor said his side conceded too early. This was Moyale’s first home loss of the season in the league.

Eagles’ Team Manager, Gabriel Chirwa, was delighted with his side’s performance.


“It was a tough game but let me just congratulate my team for getting the much-needed win,” Chirwa said.

However, three weeks after a journalist was reported to have been assaulted by Mafco officials at Mzuzu Stadium for taking pictures during the fracas that erupted in their game against Moyale, Zodiak Broadcasting Station’s sports commentator, Mike Bango, was subjected to abusive words by some home supporters on Saturday.

Bango had requested some fans that were behind his commentary box, to reduce noise as it was affecting his live radio commentary, but the fans, most of them soldiers, reacted by swearing at him.
