Malawi Cops, Blue Eagles football club, have finished the first round of the TNM Super league on top as they have defeated Wizards FC on Wednesday afternoon at Nankhaka ground.
The Maxwell Salambula netted a hat-trick while other goals for cops came from Gilbert Chirwa, Chisomo Chilasa and Stuart Mbunge respectively to claim a 6-0 win over Chilomoni based boys.
This was more like revenge match for the Eagles as they knocked out of Carlsberg Cup a week ago by the same team.
A win has made cops assistant coach Wilson Chidati believes that his team can win the TNM Super League title
“We are happy that we have finished the first round on top but the race is still on. We have played 15 games and there are 15 more games coming in the second half. All we need is to stay focused and make sure we collect as many points as possible in the last round to finish on a respectable position,” said Chidati.
Following Wednesday’s victory, it means Eagles have finished the first round of the league on top with 32 points and are being followed by fellow town rivals, Silver Strikers football club.
