Red Lions maintain top spot, bids for Malawi Super League title

After a total of six TNM Super League games that were played over the weekend, Zomba based Red Lions have retained their position at the summit of the league table after recording a rare victory over Big Bullets over the weekend.

The soldiers from Zomba cemented their position at the top of the table by claiming all three points, after registering a hard fought 3-2 victory against Blantyre giants Bullets at the Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday taking their tally to 40 points from the 22 games they have played.

The loss had devastating effects on the standing of Bullets who have since slid down the table to position 4 following wins by Moyale Barracks and Silver Strikers. If Bullets had managed a victory against Red Lions they could have risen to position one on the log table.

Moyale, who are now on the second position, claimed four points from their two games they played over the weekend after beating Blue Eagles 1-0 on Saturday before they were forced to a goalless draw by their fellow soldiers MAFCO on Sunday.

The Central Bankers are now seating on position three following their 2-1 win over Kamuzu Barracks at their backyard on Sunday after amassing 35 points from 21 games same as Moyale Barracks and fourth placed Bullets but the three teams are only separated by goal aggregate.

>Also tied on 34 points are four teams, Kamuzu Barracks, Azam Tigers, Blue Eagles and Mighty Wanderers. The four teams are on position five, six, seven and eight in that order only separated by goal difference.

Azam Tigers beat Evirom by a single goal to nil on Saturday while the Lali Lubani boys could only afford a 0-0 stalemate against a side sitting at the basement of the league table, Mzuzu United on Saturday at Balaka stadium.

Above Mzuzu United are fellow super league rookies Evirom who have 17 points and Mponela United with 20 points who are all staring relegation in the face in their maiden appearance in the top flight league.
