The Super League of Malawi (Sulom) says it is satisfied with the start of the second round of the TNM Super League. The top flight league’s second round rolled into life over the weekend after a two week break with mouth watering fixtures on display across the country.
Sulom’s General Secretary Williams Banda told Nyasa Times that the second round has started on a high note and is equally competitive as was the first round.
“The battle for the championship is as fierce as ever with teams competing for maximum points throughout,” he said.
Banda says the competition among the teams is high as evidenced by the weekend’s results.
“Its unpredictable and you can actually see that the hunger is still there despite the two week break. Even supporters thronged soccer venues which is a good sign” Banda added.
10 games were played over the weekend with 32 goals being scored.
“When you look at the number of goals scored, you will agree with me that this is going to be another outstanding season full of goals but we are worried with lack of discipline among players,” he said.
In the 10 games that have been played, 2 red and 19 yellow cards were shown to players for indiscipline.
Banda attributes this development to high levels of competition among teams saying all teams are fighting hard to bag maximum points.
And 8 yellow cards were shown in an all soldiers affair on Saturday between Red Lions and Moyale.
