Mzuni FC were given a reality check when they lost 2-0 to Azam Tigers at Kamuzu stadium on Sunday to make it two defeats in a row.
The Mzuzu based side, who made an impressive start to the 2016 Super League season, also succumbed to a 2-0 loss at the hands of Bullets on Saturday.
The students may however feel that Sunday’s defeat was unfair, and rightly so.
From an offside position, Bright Munthali scored Tigers’ first goal of the match in the 80th minute after he tapped the ball over Rabson Chiyenda’s head before Peter Katsonga made it 2-0 two minutes later.
But it was Mzuni FC who almost made the perfect start when Russell Mwafulirwa’s free kick went straight into the palms of Thomas Kalavina in goals for Azam Tigers.
After that chance both sides were failing to create clear cut chances and Tigers’ Yamikani Chester gave a fitting end to a boring first half when he blasted his shot over the bar on 45 minutes.
In the second half, Mzuni came in with fresh ideas as they were now displaying some good football in the opening minutes.
Eleven minutes into the second half Frastone Chisi could have put Mzuni ahead but he was too shy to convert his chance into a goal and he was denied by the Azam Tigers defender Peter Cholopi.
Cholopi came to Tigers’ rescue once again when he cleared off the line bullet header from Mzuni captain Victor Gondwe in the 70th minute.
At the other end Chiletso Zoya could have put the Kau Kau boys ahead after he failed to connect a cross from Yamikani Chester on the face of the Mzuni goal.
On the 80th minute of the match Bright Munthali scored Azam Tigers first goal of the match from what appeared to be an offside position after he tapped the ball over Chiyenda’s head.
Two minutes later Peter Katsonga killed the game with a fine finish for Tigers and it ended 2 nil in favour of the Kanjedza boys.
Speaking to the media, Mzuni fc coach conceded defeat but blamed the referee for the loss whereas Tigers technical director Robin Alufandika said it was a good game and they had to come with fresh ideas to beat the students from Mzuzu University.
Alufandika added by thanking Mzuni for giving them a good game and said they are an improved side than last sea
