Super League rookies Max Bullets are finding the going tough but coach Trevor Kajawa believes that most teams’ inconsistencies could save them from relegation.
He said this in a post-match interview after watching his side suffer a 2-0 loss to a rejuvenated Kamuzu Barracks (KB) at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe on Saturday.
After nine matches, Max Bullets are still pinned in relegation zone with four points.
The Blantyre-based outfit was facing Civo United as we went for press yesterday.
Said Kajawa: “The league this season is very interesting. Most of the teams are inconsistent and we hope to capitalise on that.
“All teams this season have dropped points when nobody expected.”
Kajawa said the most important thing is for his side to start collecting points.
“We can only benefit from the inconsistencies if we start winning games. In that way, it will be easy to survive the drop,” he said.
The coach said his side’s major challenge is lack of confidence and that his players are yet to gel.
“I think we have lost a number of games something that has sychologically knocked the boys down. But the conviction is there. If we regain our confidence and the team has gelled, I am sure we can start to win games,” he explained.
KB scored through Mannase Chiesa and Harvey Nkacha meant the soldiers continue to gain ground in the title race.
The Malawi Defence Force (MDF) side has now won four consecutive matches and coach Billy Phambala said the club’s form is an indication that they are serious title contenders.
“I think there is strong belief that we can go far in the campaign and even win the title,”he said.
