Azam Tigers had an easy weekend in Lilongwe, beating Blue Eagles and Epac FC on Saturday and Sunday respectively, to collect six points.
Not only did they collect maximum points but the Blantyre-based team managed a clean sheet while scoring five goals.
On Saturday, they beat Eagles 2-0 at Nankhaka and on Sunday, Epac FC were the victim, conceding three goals against none.
Yamikani Chester, Isaac Kaliati and Peter Kasonga did the damage against Epac while Diverson Chilemba and Kaliati were the scorers on Saturday.
Despite the impressive win, Tigers chairperson Sydney Chikoti admitted that they are not into title contention.
“It’s great, we have managed to win six points in away fixtures. It’s not an easy feat, but we managed. We are aiming at finishing in the top three. The league title is beyond us, but it is a realistic dream to finish in the top three. We have to be resilient and win all our remaining matches,” said Chikoti.
Chikoti said finishing in the top three will convince potential sponsors to invest in the team.
Epac FC coach Audley Makonyola admitted that Tigers were superior in all departments.
“We did not offer the resistance needed to contain them. They played some great football. Of course, it is sad that we lost, but our opponents were better,” said Makonyola after the match on Sunday.
