Rookies Surestream FC displayed a wonderful performance to force a goal-less draw against Epac in a TNM Super League match played at Civo Stadium on Sunday.
Epac were outclassed for a good part of the game, unable to suppress Surestream’s attacking verve led by Bernard Chimaimba and Godfrey Masonda.
Enjoying good support from the crowd at Civo Stadium, Surestream did not disappoint throughout the game as they swarmed all over Epac from the start.
The speed at which Surestream counter-attacked was ferocious but they were just unlucky not to claim their first win in the TNM Super League.
Epac had to thank their goalkeeper Emanuel Thenesi, who frustrated Surestream on a number of occasions.
Although Epac are considered as one of the good sides in the TNM Super League, the truth is that they are yet to convince under new coach Leo Mpulula.
Epac have only five points from the available 21 this season and there are signs that the Dean Josiah- Banda sponsored side might be one of the relegation contenders if they don’t pull up their socks.
Despite their poor show in the league, Epac assistant coach Abasi Makawa, believes the team was making progress.
“We are just unlucky but we are playing good football this season. Epac fans should not lose hope in the team, we will soon return to winning ways,” said Makawa.
On his part, Surestream technical director, Peter Mponda, admitted that his side was not sure of survival in the top flight league.
“We need to start winning games now otherwise, we will be under pressure in the second round. It’s too early to press a panic button but we need good results to stay in the league,”said Mponda
Surestream have collected only three points from eight games in their debut season in the TNM Super League.
