In an interview, Coach for Mafco Temwa Msuku said his side took advantage of Warriors’ defensive weaknesses.
“We knew Warrior is weak especially at the back so I told my boys to use that advantage. We played under pressure after Hammers’ penalty but we managed to beat them,” he said.
Warriors coach Gilbert Chirwa said they will work on their weaknesses.
Mafco have now moved to fourth position displacing Ekwendeni Hammers. The soldiers have played 13 games and have amassed 21 points while Warriors are on position 16 with 8 points.
