Stereo Gondwe: Dissapointed with loss

The Kau-Kau boys scored their goals through Peter Kansonga and Abraham Kamwendo, before the visitors scored on a spot kick after Peter Choloopi handled the ball in the box.

However, Tigers dominated the entire game, especially on the midfield where the likes of Yamikani Chester were comfortable on the ball.

The Rangers weakness was upfront where Asedi Ayami and his striker partner were not composed and looked jittery to shoot on goal.

Airborne, who are stuck on position 14 were also out of the game, as most of their players looked tired, as they could not pass up to three touches.

In the second half, Tigers have also themselves to blame for failing to score more than two goals despite finding several scoring opportunities.

The notable chance came in the 86th minute when Peter Kansonga failed to convert a well curved cross from Abraham Kamwendo as his shot went wide.

After the game Azam Tigers coach Gerald Phiri praised his charges for collecting maximum points but insisted they could have won with a bigger margin.

Airborne Rangers coach Stereo Gondwe conceded that time was running out to escape relegation.

He said the defeat means that their chances to survive in the league are hanging on a thread.

In another encounter in Lilongwe, Dedza Young Soccer beat Kamuzu Barracks 2-0 to increase their survival chances to remain in the elite League.

On Saturday, Mzuni FC have a daunting task against Big Bullets at Kamuzu Stadium, while on Sunday Fisd Wizards have to forget their woes, as they face Mighty Be Forward Wanderers at Kamuzu Stadium.

If iam not mistaken, Airborne Rangers are an airforce club. Why is it that all over, Army teams do not do well? In Zimbabwe Army and Airforce teams do not do stay long in premier league.
