Raphael Humba

The Southern Region Football Association (SRFA) has dismissed claims of match fixing as the league continues to search for the team to be promoted to the 2019 TNM Super League.

This follows a 19-0 victory for Nyasa Big Bullets Reserves over Nsanama United on Wednesday at Kamuzu Stadium.

According to media reports, SRFA Chairman Raphael Humba says his association will continue investigating the allegations until truth is established.

“We have heard rumours of possible match fixing but it’s just an allegation and as an association, we will constitute a committee which will look into the issue so that truth is established,” he said.

Commenting on the 19-0 scoreline, Humba said there was nothing surprising as Bullets has been contributing players to the national team over the past months.

“Looking at the strength of the two teams you can see that Bullets has an edge over Nsanama in almost every department. We have seen Bullets contributing players to the junior national teams and it’s not a surprise to see them scoring such a margin over their opponent,” he told Timveni Sports desk.

Currently, Ntopwa Super Boys lead the log table with 86 points from 38 games while Nyasa Big Bullets Reserve are second with 82 points from 36 games played.
