“It doesn’t matter what the points are at the moment,” he said.
“We still have a long way to go but we will continue to fight. We want to be as popular as Bullets F.C in the next few years,” Kananji added.
Blantyre United scored the lone goal through Brown Mizeyi in the early minutes of the game.
Mizeyi capitalized on a beautifully taken pin point cross from Abraham Kamwendo who was operating from the right flank.
The cross landed directly on the head of Mizeyi who without any mistake headed it into the net beating helpless goalkeeper Duncan Mkandawire who just featured for the first time after serving a two match ban.
The visiting side knocked twice on Eagles goal but Mkandawire produced splendid serves with the ball almost kissing the back of the net.
Veteran midfielder formerly of Mighty Wanderers and Tigers F.C Maxwell Chirwa led the youthful Blantyre United side in showcasing beautiful talent that kept supporters on their feet almost the entire 90 minutes of the game.
Blue Eagles coach Deklerk Msakakuona brought in Flames young sensational midfielder Mecium Mhone who replaced Japhet Mambelera in the opening 20 minutes before making other two changes in the second half which never paid any dividends.
Mhone only managed a single fearess attempt at united goal but the keeper managed to push the ball over the bar for a corner.
