Silver Strikers climbed out of the TNM Super League relegation zone following their 2-0 victory against Chikwawa United on Saturday at Kalulu Stadium.
The Bankers, who have now eight points scored their two goals through Blessings Tembo and Green Harawa.
The home side, who won 2-1 in their last league game against Blantyre United failed to keep ball possession on the midfield, where the Bankers dominated through Young Chimodzi Jnr.
Lack of experience was also spotted on the Lower Shire out-fit as their striking force which was led by Ian Banda could not get it right.
The Bankers, who rested their first choice goalkeeper Charles Swini to feature former Envirom FC Blessings Kameza were a better side in the entire 90 minutes.
After the final whistle, Silver Strikers coach Stain Chirwa hailed his boys for their victory but emphasized that Chikwawa United has skillful players but lack experience.
“We are happy for this victory because we are now out of the relegation zone,” said Chirwa.
His opposite number for Chikwawa United, Thom Mkorongo vowed to improve in their next fixture stressing his troops created scoring opportunities but lacked confidence to shoot on goal.
On Sunday, the battle of points continues with Big Bullets hosting Azam Tigers at Kamuzu Stadium while Mighty Wanderers treks to Balaka to face Epac FC.
The Bankers will be traveling to the old capital city to play Red Lions at the Zomba Community Centre ground.
