EPAC pulled a dramatic 2-1 victory over Super League rookies Dedza Young Soccer to collect the maximum points needed for them to stay in the top league.

The team’s sponsor Dean Josiah Banda dangled the carrot before the match and the players managed to escape relegation in energy-sapping encounter coming from behind.

EPAC coach Abbas Makawa became a proverbial rejected stone that turned into a corner stone after being firedg at the end of last season for controversial Leo Mpulula.

However Makawa was handpicked by Mpulula and eventually took over from him after contractual disagreement.

“This is wonderful that the players managed to fight on and win this great battle to stay on in the top league,” Makawa said.

He attributed the team’s panic to a poor run in the first round of the season.

“We dropped many points in the first round and it was difficult for us to recover. I salute the players for putting up a great fight.”

Dedza were relegated alongside their Central Region counterparts Airborne Rangers and rookies FISD Wizzards from the Central Region.

Mzuzu University (Mzuni) managed to be the last men standing from the promoted teams.

FREE ADVICE TO JOSIAH , Maintan abbas makawa as coach because he is good , he only need more support like good salary, more friendlies, etc, in addittion to that there is good relationship btwn abbas and players ( you can hire a good coach but if there is bad relaionship with players you can achieve nothing e g mourinho and chelsea )

So we can conclude that Leo Mpulula knew that the problem with EPAC wac not Makawa.
