Kamuzu Barracks defender Mustafa Salimu on Wednesday, May 7, 2014 did a great service to his former side as he struck into his own net to hand defending league champions Silver Strikers maximum points in a mid-week fixture attended by a good crowd at Silver Stadium in Lilongwe.
The former Silver Strikers left back diverted a cross from striker Rodrick Gonani into his own net after just two minutes of play.
As it turned out, this was all the bankers needed to cut their ‘debt’ to Super League of Malawi (Sulom) from -5 to -2. They are now a win away to move out of the negative zone and start accumulating points.
Coach Stain Chirwa, who was without his two injured defenders- Lucky Malata and Thoko Stambuli as well as U-20 international Chawanangwa Kaonga sounded relieved with the victory which he said was well deserved by his charges.
“Coming from two successive losses, Kamuzu Barracks came prepared but I am happy that we have got the full points. We now have to win our next game against Blantyre United to start accumulating points and challenge for the title,” said Chirwa.
His counterpart Charles Kamanga said he was disappointed with the result but assured the team’s followers that things will improve.
“It’s very painful losing three games in a row. I don’t really know what the problem is but I am sure things will get better and we will start winning,” said Kamanga, whose next assignment is against Blantyre United at Dedza Stadium on Sunday.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
