Chikwawa revival continues, beat Blantyre Utd: Malawi TNM Super League

Rookies Chikwawa United continue their revival in the TNM Super League as they recorded a second win against Blantyre United in a match played at Kamuzu Stadiu on Sunday.

Running like desperate rabbits, Chikwawa United scored in less than 10 minutes from the kick-off through after a powerful header.

The early goal disturbed Blantyre United as the visitors stole the show outplaying them in their own half.

Blantyre side had a blunt upfront where Aiko Maluwa and Muhammad Sulumba lacked confidence inside the 18 yard box.

The commercial city boys, missing the services of some of their key players due to suspensions, had also problems in the midfield resulting in their defenders marshalled by Sadick Wachimwa playing under pressure.

At half time, the state of affairs remained 1-0 in favour of Chikwawa.

To beef up support, at the beginning of the second half, Coach Alex Masanjala pushed in some fresh legs but it paid dividends when Spencer Chapantha’s free kick landed in Chikwawa United’s net.

Relying mostly on their wingers, Chikwawa boys came into the lime light in the 82th minute to score the winning goal.

However, Blantyre United were reduced to ten men, when one of their players was shown marching orders for a bad tackle.

Chikwawa’s second goal gave them courage as they started coordinating well with good brisk passes invading the home side half wave after wave until the referee blew his whistle to mark the end of the game.

Chikwawa United coach Thom Mkorongo said he was delighted with the win and said it “will get even better.”
