Nchalo are the leaders in the Peter Mutharika Southern Region Football League (SRFL) and are under pressure from second-placed Bvumbwe Research.
It has been five years since Nchalo got ejected from the Super League yet every time they promise a comeback, they falter on the way.
Not too long ago, they had a cushion of nine points, but now they are clinging to two points separating them from Bvumbwe.
While Nchalo are almost invincible at their back yard, it is the away form that is so erratic. They dropped further three points in Liwonde on Sunday.
And tomorrow, Nchalo face a stubborn eighth-positioned, Eagles who have, in 17 home matches, lost thrice.
Such a record should be enough warning to the visitors Nchalo who will count on the inspiration of captain Joe Kabichi in defence and their playmaker Lesley Elia in midfield. Dave Chadewa leads from the front.
With four games, Nchalo lead the table on 66 points from 29 games while Bvumbwe have 64 points .
Bvumbwe, under coach Bob Mpinganjira, have shown a remarkable late surge of form. They have the Premier Divisionâ€™s two leading scorers Vincent Chinthenga (20) and Mayeso Mphanje (19).
Bvumbwe might wish to put their feet on the gas pedal as they travel to MDC Stadium tomorrow for a meeting with inconsistent Lab Enterprises. Lab are ninth on 34 points.
