Robert Ng’ambi confident of PSL survival


Malawi national football team veteran midfielder Robert Ng’ambi is optimistic that his side Black Leopards will survive this season’s relegation battle in South Africa’s Premier Soccer League.

Ng’ambi made the remarks after Leopards beat 3-2 Maritzburg United at FNB Stadium in Johannesburg on Sunday.

The win was not enough to take Leopards out of the relegation zone as they are anchoring the 16-member log table with 23 points from 25 matches.


Despite not featuring during the match, the former Nyasa Big Bullets midfielder said the win was a morale booster in their fight to dodge relegation.

“It is always important to win. We are not doing well this season but we are trying our best to win the remaining matches to remain in the league. If we win the next three matches it will give us a good push,” Ng’ambi said.

Mwape Musonda, Lifa Hlongwane and Tiklas Thutlwa scored for Leopards while Keagan Buchanan and Mxolisi Kunene scored for Maritzburg.


However, Ng’ambi admitted it would be tough to move out of the relegation zone as competition was stiff.

Leopards are stuck in the relegation zone alongside 15th placed Polokwane City and 14th placed AmaZulu.

Meanwhile, Flames striker Frank Gabadinho Mhango returns to action today to continue with his chase for golden boot award as his side Orlando Pirates dates relegation threatened Baroka.

It will be a Malawian affair as Baroka is also expected to feature Mhango’s compatriots Gerald Phiri jnr and Richard Mbulu. Baroka are 13th with 24 points.

Mhango is still the league’s leading scorer with 14 goals having failed to score against his former side Bidvest Wits in a goalless draw.
