Lilongwe-based football giants Silver Strikers FC are now on second position of the TNM Super League following their win against Red Lions on Saturday.
The Bankers have dislodged Mafco FC from second position after beating the Zomba-based Lions 2-1 in a game that was played at Balaka stadium.
Silver Strikers scored through Matthews Sibale and Blessings Tembo while Red Lions scored through Gibson Nkhonjera.
Silver Strikers’ coach Lovemore Fazili said was impressed with the team’s performance considering that it is almost new squad.
“It feels good to collect points away and we will make sure we maintain the good form,” said Fazili.
Red Lions coach Mike Kumanga described the result as disappointing.
“It is a very disappointing result and we never expected to lose this game. We managed to contain them in the first half and we ended up giving them two goal,” he said.
“These are the same players we had last season and I don’t know what is going on but I think we need to sit down with the players and executive to find out what is really happening”.
Red Lions have so far played eight games winning twice and losing six times and are stuck on position 13.
The Bankers have 16 points from eight games two behind leaders Blue Eagles who leads with 18 points.
