Tall order for bottom three

Trevor Kajawa

Three bottom-placed sides have admitted that their chances of survival in the TNM Super League are hanging by a thread.

Table-anchors Mzuzu Warriors, Ntopwa FC and Mighty Tigers have been stuck at the bottom since the second round started.

Warriors Assistant Coach Lawrence Waya said they were not throwing the towel in survival battle.


“Anything can happen. It is a tall order but we will fight to the end. We are encouraging the players to continue showcasing their skills because they stand a chance of being spotted to advance their career. Otherwise, surviving this battle is not going to be easy. We are facing teams that are well sponsored. We have to start from the scratch to motivate the players to work hard,” he said.

Warriors are at the bottom with 17 points from 26 games and will travel to Lilongwe to date second-placed Silver Strikers.

Similarly, Ntopwa are stuck on position 15 with 21 points from 27 games.


Ntopwa owner Isaac Jomo Osman said they were hoping for divine intervention to escape the relegation trap.

“We left our survival chances in God’s hands. We will continue working hard and, hopefully, we will survive,” he said.

Mighty Tigers Coach Trevor Kajawa believes his charges can dodge the relegation bullet if they win their remaining games.

“We are in a tight spot because we are close to teams fighting for survival. We are working hard during training to win our games and stand a chance of surviving,” he said.

Tigers will face Chitipa United at Mpira Stadium on Saturday. The Kau-Kau outfit is on position 14 and has 25 points from 26 games.
