The going continues to be tough for regional Premier Division sides Matamando, Mponela United and Kazuni who remain winless in at least five games and anchor the log-tables in the South, Centre and North, respectively.
Matamando, who were Division One champions last season, suffered a 0-4 defeat at the hands of Bvumbwe Research on Sunday to remain at the bottom of the 21-team Master Security Southern Region Football Association (SRFA) Premier League with two points from eight games.
Cobbe Barracks are at the summit of the table with 17 points from eight matches while Michiru Madrid have moved three places up to take the second place with 16 points from seven games following their 3-2 triumph over Fomo.
Matamando’s assistant team manager Neverson Kalipalire said their poor showing in recent matches was because of some disagreements between administrators and players over the sharing of prize money for winning the Division One title.
“But we have now sorted out our differences and we will start winning,” Kapalire said.
In the Chipiku Central Region Football Association (CRFA) Premier League, former TNM Super League outfit Mponela United anchor the 22-team log-table with two points from six games.
. Despite their 0-1 loss to Ndawula United last weekend, Master Security Rangers still dictate affairs in the league with 18 points from eight games. Holy Cross Ambassadors come second with 16 points from seven matches.
In the Simama Northern Region Football Association (NRFA) Premier League, Kazuni lost 0-7 to Luwinga United last weekend to be confined to the bottom of the table with no point from five games.
Luwinga lead the 21-team pack with 13 points from six games. Mzuzu United are second on the ladder with 12 points from four fixtures. n
