Chitipa United have edged closer to relegation

The defeat comes barely 24 hours after losing 3-0 to Silver Strikers on Sunday and completely dash Chitipa’s hopes of surviving the chop with less than three games to play.

The Northern Region side took a 2-1 half time lead through Enock Alfred and Ndaona Kapira but the 2016 league champions came back stronger in second half as they scored three goals to send the visitors to an early grave.

The latest defeat leaves them 9 points adrift of safety with less than three games to play.

Their maximum points are 25 and chances of them surviving the drop looks minimal with Red Lions, Premier Bet Wizards and Blantyre United all fighting for safety.

In another Super League game, Moyale Barracks and Mafco played to a 1-all draw at Mzuzu Stadium.

The result sees Mafco maintaining their 4th position with 42 points from 25 games while Moyale Barracks are 7th with 36 points from 38 points.



  1. A herbalist in Africa has been curing hundreds of HIV patients using natural herbs. He has on countless occasions after curing patients presented lab results both positive and negative, together with the cured person. with joy in my heart i will like to inform the general public. i never knew there was a cure to HIV until my sister was cured from the virus after four years of battling the virus with ARV. She took his herbal medicine for a month and some weeks and when she went for a test and she was diagnosed to be negative. you can contact the doctor on WhatsApp or call +2348147299781

  3. Great potential plunged into a harsh environment!!! SULOM needs to assess realities faced by young and upcoming clubs!!! Reform the super league to improve survival chances of young teams!!! The motivation must be to motivate teams not just competition!!! I suggest that the super league be at regional level with playoffs for the top three teams from regions. Relegation be at regional level. Let teams have manageable costs , particularly, travel expenses – a realistic consideration in a struggling economy of Malawi!!!
