TNM Super League action continues this afternoon with four matches involving teams that are potential relegation candidates.
Log table anchors Nchalo United host fellow sugar estate outfit Dwangwa United at Kalulu Stadium in a battle that will see the home side getting automatic relegation if they lose while the visitors need a win to avoid sinking deeper into the relegation zone.
Nchalo have 13 points from 25 games and 28 points is their maximum tally, a feat that has already been achieved by 12th-placed Dwangwa and 13th-positioned Red Lions, who remain with seven and five games, respectively, to wind up their fixtures.
At Karonga Stadium, Lions are expecting to earn their second successive win and avoid being displaced by their 14th placed hosts Karonga United, who are just a point behind.
“After beating Civil Sporting Club 2-0 in our last league match, we eye another win to get out of the relegation zone,” said Lions interim coach Nelson Chirwa.
Another interesting fixture will be between Mafco and TN Stars at Chitowe Stadium. Mafco, who stand just a step above the bottom place with 21 points from 24 matches, who have won a single game in their last 11 matches and will see their survival hopes going up in smoke if they suffer defeat.
As for TN Stars, a win will put them on the right path to a second successive-season in the top flight league as they lie 11th with 30 points from 24 games.
At Civo Stadium in Lilongwe, Kamuzu Barracks (KB) and Blue Eagles will battle for sixth place. KB are on position 10 with 31 points from 25 games but a win will help them displace sixth-placed Eagles who have 33 points.
