Mafco FC Coach Temwa Msuku expressed delightment with the win in an interview with reporters after their game against brothers in arms Red Lions.
“I am happy that we have managed to collect three points ontop of our brothers. It wasn’t easy at all and I thank my boys for their fighting spirit throughout the entire game” said Msuku.
He therefore said they will continue working hard so that they keep on squeezing themselves to the top of the log table.
His opposite number Mike Kumanga admitted things are getting out of hand and that pressure is mounting on his team.
“I feel bad that we are failing to get a winning formula despite playing good football. We are playing good football but I wonder why we can’t score goals, this is disheartening” said Kumanga.
He however refused to throw in the towel.
“We will keep on fighting and make sure we push ourselves into the top eight, being relegated for a team like ours which has been in the league for so many years is unacceptable” he added.
