Spoonful of Malawian players in South Africa Premier Soccer League (PSL) are finding their feet with three out of five players able to, so far, nail down regular places.
For 90 minutes in Wednesdayâ€™s 2-1 defeat by Chippa United, Limbikani Mzava was a tower of strength in Bloemfontein Celticâ€™s defence at Cape Townâ€™s Athlone Stadium, according to SuperSport website.
Rookies Chippa seized the lead in the 30th minute through Petrus Ngebo and Diego Brown extended the cushion with a 54th minute finish. Celticâ€™s Lennox Bacela pulled one back from the penalty spot.
Still in PSL, struggling striker Atusaye Nyondo returned to SuperSport United playing squad, lying sixth on seven points, but could only last for 54 minutes in a barren Tshwane derby against Mamelodi Sundowns.
SuperSportâ€™s squad rotation means that Nyondo, who is yet to score this season, might miss the next fixture.Â The other struggler is Robin Ngalande, who is now entering into four months of inactivity at BidVest Wits University who lost 2-1 to Kaizer Chiefs on Tuesday night.
On Tuesday night, Harry Nyirenda, who is an ever present in the starting XI unless injured, commanded Black Leopardsâ€™ defence in 2-2 tie with Maritzburg United. Leopards are placed eighth on six points while Celtic are ninth on similar points.
On the same day, Robert Ngâ€™ambi was the midfield cog for Platinum Stars who ground out a 0-0 draw with Golden Arrows. Stars are second from the bottom on four points on the 16-member log table.
â€œWe have dropped more points but I have no doubt we will turn the corner,â€ Ngâ€™ambi, whose club dominance does not translate to the Flames, said before the game at Tuks Stadium.
