Despite being outplayed by their hosts in open play, the Bankers seemed to have bagged the full points- courtesy of Blessings Tembo’s 12th minute strike from a goal scramble but it was never to be as Civo rescued a point with their last kick of the game.

Winger Thoko Harrison, who was deservedly named man-of-the-match hit the bankers where it pains most after heading in an equalizer deep into injury time.

The goal originated from a long throw in by defender Emmanuel Zoya, which was first flicked by Jabulani Linje before being driven into the net by the exciting Harrison.

It was all celebrations in Civo’s camp after the goal as the home fans sang: Ayilira ayilira, Ayilira ayilira.

“We were supposed to wrap up the game with a second goal but we ended up losing concentration at the very end. It was the same scenario in Blantyre last week and we need to do something about this when we go back to training,” said Silver coach Stain Chirwa.

Civo’s assistant coach Beggie Mwagomba felt his team was supposed to carry the maximum points but said he was not disappointed with the point.

“We played better than Silver and were supposed to win this game but we still accept the point. For a long period, we have been having problems containing Silver and today we wanted to put that to an end,” said Mwagomba.

    Honestly CIVO was the better team yesterday, beautiful football display, talented lads. Silver had the overrated Chawanangwa Kaonga at least displaying some skills here and there. Koma lucky Malata nde koma lenileni player opanga skill ngati ameneyu sindinamuonenso
