Msakakuona: Eagles are hot contenders for the title

The Malawi Police Services side is third in the  16-team league with 44 points five behind leaders Bullets who took charge of the log standings after beating Mzuni FC 3-2 in a highly contested match played at the Kamuzu Stadium.

The cops have however played a game more than Wanderers and Bullets who have seven games apiece to wrap of the league campaign.

“We have six games to wrap up the season and we are talking of 18 points. If we can play our cards well we can make it. The league has reached a boiling point and it is my hope that we will work extra hard to register good results,” said Msakakuona.

Their attention this weekend switches to FISD Challenge Cup as they face Moyale Barracks on Sunday at the Civo Stadium.

Meanwhile, Wanderers coach Bob Mpinganjira has also refused to throw in the towel on winning the league after the devastating loss to Eagles.

“The battle is still on. We lost to Eagles but we will make sure that we return to winning ways to accomplish our dream of winning the title” said Mpinganjira.
