Mzuzu based soldiers, Moyale Barracks, have said their target is to finish the first round on top of the Super League standings.
Moyale coach Charles Kamanga revealed his team’s ambition on Sunday after the soldiers beat rookies Masters Security 2-1.
Fifth-placed Moyale have played seven games amassing 13 points.
“We are now going to focus ahead for results and we want to finish at least top of league,” said Kamanga.
In the game, Deus Nkutu who has recently returned from peacekeeping mission in Democratic Republic of Congo put the ball into the back of the net 18 minutes after kick-off.
Masters levelled the scores five minutes before half-time when Mabuchi Nkosi scored with a left footed shot.
In the second half, both sides played attacking football but it was Moyale who used their chance as midfielder Victor Gondwe scored the winning goal.
The game ended 2-1 to Moyale.
Kamanga was happy to collect maximum points saying Nkutu’s return after a two-year hiatus is a boost to the team.
“Nkutu showed today that he is a good player despite that he went for peacekeeping mission,” he said.
While his counterpart for Masters Security Benjamin Kumwenda accepted the defeat saying his boys worked hard but it wasn’t their day.
“My boys worked hard today only that we don’t have that chance to score in this game. We are going back without a point hope next time we will make it better to return with points,” said Kumwenda.
The loss means Masters Security are on position 12 with 8 points from 8 games.
