The Bankers then saw the back of the net in the 67th minute through Mathews Siwale before Mzuni equalised through their substitute Henry Misinjo in the 89th minute.

After the game, Francis Songo team manager for the Bankers said they failed to play their usual football because of the pitch.

“We failed to play our usual tactic football because the condition of the ground, it is in bad state that made us to lose more balls,” he said.

On the red card,  Songo said he could not comment because he was yet to speak with  Munthali.

While Mzuni coach Alex Ngwira said Silver scored  an offside goal but he congratulated his boys for the hard work to hold silver.
