Blantyre United, who were 4th ahead of their assignments last weekend, now lead the second tier football league with 34 points from 17 games after winning both their fixtures against Michiru Madrid 2-1 at BAT Ground on Friday and BNC Produsak 1-0 on Sunday at Chiwembe.
Coming hot on their heels are MDF Marine on second position with 32 points from 16 games while Mitra Icons are third with 31 points from 15 games.
