Winless Chitipa United have admitted that they are panicking over their poor run in the TNM Super League which has seen them collecting just a point so far.
The top-flight table anchors have lost six out of seven games this far.
Club general secretary Duma Ngoma on Tuesday said the situation is now a cause for worry.
He said: “It is now sort of getting out of hand and we need to do something about it.
“It’s painful to lose five games in a row. It’s disappointing to be losing games every weekend and as an executive committee, we are concerned.”
However, Ngoma said they find solace in the fact that the team’s performance is not that bad.
“Our biggest weakness is scoring goals and we need to work on that and other areas as well,” he said.
The Chitipa-based side’s poor run culminated in back-to-back losses to Blue Eagles (4-0) and TN Stars (1-0) on their outing to the Central Region at the weekend.
Assistant coach Nathaniel Nkamanga said he is distraught at the rate they are dropping points despite some good performances.
“What is painful is that we cannot score goals despite creating good chances in most of the games we have played,” he said.
The poor form is continuing despite the club ushering in a new executive committee a fortnight ago which was charged with turning around the club’s fortunes.
Chitipa collected their only point after playing out a one-all draw against Karonga United.
