Northern Region giants Moyale Barracks have attributed their two back-to back loses over the weekend to poor preparations and have since pushed the blame to the Super League of Malawi (Sulom).
Head coach Nicholous Mhango said poor setting of fixtures by Sulom contributed to their disastrous outing in the second week of the flagship K90 Million TNM Super League.
“I am very disappointed that we have lost six points. Our aim was to collect all the points but we have failed,” Moyale coach said.
“I believe this is what Sulom had planned because last week we were on the road [From Mzuzu to Dedza] and this weekend we also travelled again the same route; how do you expect the team to do better? The players were tired and we only had two full time training for only two days,” said Mhango.
According to Mhango, his side will keep on focusing on their next fixtures by rectifying few mistakes the technical panel has observed so far.
“We have slight problems both in our attacking and defending,” he added.
During the first week, Moyale were at the top of the fifteen member log table having beaten fellow soldiers Kamuzu Barracks 1-0 and rookies Dedza Young Soccer 1-0 at the Dedza Stadium respectively.
But in the just ended weekend, they were hammered by Blue Eagles 2-0 and Epac F.C 2-1.
They currently now sit on position eighth.
Meanwhile, Red Lions top the log standings with six points ahead of Blue Eagles, Big Bullets and Mafco who again have six points each and are separated by goal difference.
