The Going Gets Tougher in the Super League 2nd Round
The level of competition in this year’s second round of the Tnm Super League is said to be stiffer than any other year of the recent past.
Speaking in postmatch interviews after their teams payed out to a goalless draw the two coaches conceded that the going is not easy since the second round of the Tnm Super kicked off a few weeks ago.
First to comment was Phambala who said collecting a point in an away fixture has become something worthy celebrating for considering how competitive the league has become now.
The Mzuni FC and Kamuzu Barracks Football Club coaches Gilbert Chirwa and Billy Phambala said this in Mzuzu on Sunday.
“The level of competition in the super league has been raised now, and collecting a point in away fixture like this is not bad,
” You will see somewhere along the way that this point is going to be vital for us but am sure we shall restrategise and come out fighting again, ” Phambala said
His counterpart on the Mzuni FC technical panel, Gilbert Chirwa also expressing the same sentiments raised by Phambala saying that teams have indeed raised the level of completion in this year’s second round of the league.
” Let me agree with Phambala that this year’s second round of the league is very tough as compared to any of the league’s s second rounds in the recent past,
“It is true, teams are fighting for either championship, top-8 or survival in the league so the competitors are now grouped in such phases, but am sure Mzuni FC shall be among the best,” Chirwa said.
Kamuzu Barracks Football Club has also managed to collect just a single point during their tour of the Northern Region after registering a loss in their first assignment against fellow brothers in arms, Moyale Barracks on Saturday.
The record still remains unbroken at the Mzuzu stadium where no visiting team has managed to collect maximum points in the last three Super League seasons .
