Nchalo United open 8-point gap
Nchalo United have opened an eight-point gap at the summit of Masters Security Southern Region Football Association Premier Division.
Nchalo opened the gap after beating Nanzikambe FC 2-0 on Sunday at Chiwembe Ground in Blantyre.
The win galvanised Nchalo’s promotion campaign to the TNM Super League as their closest rivals, Chikwawa United, dropped points in a barren draw against Bvumbwe United.
Nchalo have 69 points from 29 games, while Chikwawa have 61 points with a game in hand.
The leaders host White Eagles at Kalulu Stadium on Saturday whereas Chikwawa are in action on Sunday against Jali Rangers.
On Sunday, Nchalo will face a real test of their ability to win the championship with a fixture against 13th-placed Be Forward Wanderers Reserves.
Chikwawa Head Coach, McDonald Yobe, conceded that upstaging Nchalo from the driving seat is a tall order.
“We just have to win our remaining games and hope that our rivals drop points. But things are not looking good. Nchalo seem to be running away with it,” Yobe said.
Nchalo have 11 games to wind up the season whereas Chikwawa are 12 games away from wrapping up their campaign.
In Division One, Nyasa Big Bullets Reserves increased their lead to 76 points from 30 games after a 1-0 win over third-placed Hangover in Blantyre on Saturday.
