Civo in search of strikers as goal drought continues

As 2015/16 K90 Million TNM Super League enters week six this coming weekend, it has emerged that Civo Service United goal scoring drought is far from over following the club’s confession that they are lacking firepower upfront hence the need to rope in new goal poachers.

The Civil Servants lack of goal threat has been evident in their underwhelming start to the season having failed to find the back of the net even once in their last five matches they have so far played.

The team has lost four matches and drawn once a situation that has left the club on the second position from the bottom of the log table with a single point.

Civo General Secretary Rashid Mtelera has since revealed that the club executive is now convinced of the need to bring in new strikers at the earliest opportunity.

“Our major problem as of now is to score goals and we have settled to fetch for new strikers” said Mtelera on Tuesday.

He however advised supporters to be patient enough.

This comes amid calls from some supporters demanding the firing of Head Coach Oscar Kaunda.

Frustrated Kaunda could not bear the pain anymore as he shunned the media interview after the Sunday fixture against Mighty Be Forward Wanderers.

Meanwhile, Civo Skipper Emmanuel Zoya agreed with the General Secretary that soon things will work out for the better.

“We are going through difficult times but soon things will be fine we just need to have faith” Zoya told Nyasa Times.

Civo lost a couple of its key players during the off season and the major one being that of Jabulani Linje who joined Mighty Be Forward Wanderers.

Linje went on to punish his former club last Sunday when he scored a late winner as Wanderers beat Civo 1-0.

In a related development, struggling Epac F.C is reported to have summoned its Head Coach Leo Mpulula to a hearing slated for today Tuesday following Epac’s poor showing.

Epac G.S Obedi Chatsunda Banda comfirmed the development saying the they demand an explaination on the teams poor performance.

Mpulula allegedly told the media recently that he is not working comfortably at Epac.
