Moyale Barracks coach Nicholas Mhango criticised his team for playing “pointless” football as their second-round poor form continued with a 2-1 loss to Civo United on Sunday giving away TNM Super League title chances.
Moyale lost 2-1 to visiting Civo United on Sunday, a week after they were also clipped 5-1 to Airborne Rangers.
The poor form has been described as the club’s “worst situation in years” by coach Mhango.
” Our performance of late is not good enough. We are playing football which is absolutely pointless,” said Mhango. “We were supposed to win Sunday’s game by all means if we want still to be in contention.
“We misplaced many passes in the first half and made simple mistakes,” said Mhango. “They can be explained in a host of ways, but still should not be happening.
“We just made it too easy for our opponents. We’ve got to eradicate these mistakes. We’ve got to resolve this and nobody’s going to help us.”
As it is now, Big Bullets lead the standings on 47 points from 22 games, followed by Moyale Barracks on 44 points in 23 games.
Blue Eagles are on third on 40 points from 21 games after losing 2-0 to in-form sixth-placed Azam Tigers (32 points).
The title race is among the three teams. Blantyre United anchor the table on 14 points from 22 games.
