Red Lions Football Club sustained to impress in the Thumbs-Up Southern Region Football League after a 3-1 win over Wizards at Cobbe Barracks in Zomba on Sunday.
The former TNM Super League side went into the match having drawn 1-1 against White Eagles on Saturday in Blantyre and was eager to collect full points.
Lions Coach, Nelson Chirwa, said that they were geared to fight for a return to the top flight league.
“Competition is very stiff in the league but we are working hard to collect as many points as we can. We need to return to the Super League next season,” Chirwa said.
He added: “I have told my players to make sure we do not lose any game. The draw against White Eagles on Saturday was not what we had planned for.”
However, Wizards owner and Coach, Peter Mponda conceded defeat saying his team’s performance was affected by their first choice goalkeeper’s injury.
Meanwhile, Lions top the table with 37 points after playing 14 games while Wizards are eighth with 26 points from the same number of games.
