Azam Tigers fear they could find themselves in a tricky relegation fight after a 10-match winless run stagnated what promised to be a successful season for the Blantyre-based outfit.
A 0-1 loss to Moyale Barracks on Sunday meant Tigers have only collected four points from a possible 30.
Though they are on position eight with 32 points, they need to win one game and earn a draw to be safe.
Speaking in an interview yesterday, the Kau Kau Boys’ technical director Robin Alufandika conceded that they are in a tricky situation.
“We haven’t won for a long time and this has surprised everybody at the club because we have been playing really well,” he said.
Alufandika was optimistic that they will beat the drop by winning some games.
Like most teams, they remain with four games to wind up their season.
“What we have lacked in the second round is luck. We hope that we will have it back in the remaining games,” he said.
Meanwhile, Alufandika hopes coach Gerald Phiri will remain at the club beyond this season despite the club’s dip in form.
“When the season has finished, the club directors will analyse the season and make some changes. If the directors asked for my opinion on the coach, I would defend Phiri to still be here,” he said.
Tigers’ next game is against bottom of the table Fisd Wizards at Kamuzu Stadium on Sunday. n
