Blantyre United FC have said they will not rely on favours from other teams, but rather fight their own battle in their quest for the TNM Super League Championship.
The Super league leaders travel to the central region this weekend where head coach Elijah Kananji is looking for nothing short of six points that will see them go eight points clear.
They face Blue Eagle on Saturday at Nankhaka before meeting relegation threatened Kamuzu Barracks on Sunday.
Incidentally, Eagles and KB are the only teams that beat United in the league at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre after inflicting 3-1 and 2-0 defeats respectively.
Kananji said they are invading Lilongwe with a revenge mission, but said the points are what matter most.
“We are not banking on other teams now to do us a favour, we will do it ourselves. Let the favours come as a bonus after we have done our job,” said Kananji.
He also said they have taken a while without playing in the capital city and said it is time the central region fans appreciated their current form.
“We have been playing good football of late but unfortunately it has been in southern region or the north we have not been to the Central Region in the second round so this is an opportunity for the fans that side to appreciate why we are in contention for the championship,” said Kananji.
He cited Jimmy Chikulekele, Brown Mizeye and Sparrow Msowoya as some of his players playing good football who will thrill the central region fans.
If United, who have 45 points, win all their remaining games they will finish with 60 points. This will be six points short of Silver Strikers if the defending champions also win all their remaining games.
Practically it means United, to be crowned champions, will have to win all their games and pray that Silver drop at least seven points out of the possible 24 on the table.
