The match got off to a quiet start as both teams  battled for control of the middle of the park in the early stages of the encounter.

The first chance of the game fell for  Blantyre United  forward John Chibaya in the 10th minute, but Stars goalkeeper  John Soko  came out to deny him.

The  hosts  were slowly gaining control of the game and six minutes later, Mwayi Kampezeni  unleashed a powerful low shot which was brilliantly saved by Soko.

The Blue Eagles goalkeeper was having a great game keeping the home team at bay.

In the 20th minute, Maxwell Salambula’s powerful effort from a free-kick was well saved by  Christopher Mikuwa, who was equal to the task once again.

But  Mikuwa was finally beaten before half time  when Elijah Kabingu fired home to make it 1-0 to  Blue Eagles heading into the half-time break.

Sparrow Msowoya, formely of Be Forward Wanderers saw his  effort over the crossbar 5 minutes into the second half.

Blue Eagles responded a few minutes later when Mphatso Philimoni  missed the target following a great pass from Chisomo Chilasa.

The home side were struggling to penetrate the  Blue Eagles  defence which was marshalled by Gio Banda.

In the 82nd minute, Jide Mbandambanda  beat his marker, before unleashing a thunderous shot which was saved by Soko.

Pressure was mounting on  Blantyre United  and three minutes later, long-range specialist Sparrow Msowoya effort from another set-piece was pushed onto the crossbar by Soko.

The  cops stood firmly and  ensured that the game ended in a 1-0 victory to go back to area 30 with three points in the bag.
