Kamuzu Barracks (KB), the reigning champions of the TNM Super League in 2016, have surged into second place after securing a narrow 1-0 victory against Bangwe All Stars, who currently sit in 14th position, at Aubrey Dimba Stadium in Mchinji yesterday.

KB’s triumph has positioned them as strong contenders for the title once again, reminiscent of their successful campaign in 2016. With 11 points amassed from five games, they have netted eight goals while conceding only four.

The decisive goal for KB came from Zeliat Nkhoma in the 38th minute, converting a penalty and taking his tally to five goals, making him the leading scorer of the season thus far.

Their ascent of three places has propelled them past Mzuzu City Hammers, Mighty Mukuru Wanderers, and FCB Nyasa Big Bullets, elevating them from fifth to second place in the league standings.

In contrast, Mzuzu City Hammers have slipped to third, Wanderers to fourth, and Bullets to fifth following their recent performances, which included draws against Moyale Barracks and each other in the Blantyre derby.

Premier Bet Dedza Dynamos secured their first win of the season with a commanding 3-0 victory over Mafco at home. The injection of Premier Bet sponsorship worth K 100 million has provided a significant boost to the team’s morale, as evidenced by their improved performance.

Meanwhile, Mafco continues to struggle, languishing in the relegation zone at 15th place with only two points from five games and conceding a total of 11 goals.

Elsewhere, Civil Service United claimed a narrow 1-0 victory over FOMO, maintaining their position in 11th place, while FOMO slipped to 12th after the defeat.

Karonga United and Creck Sporting settled for a 1-1 draw, with Karonga maintaining their 7th position with eight points, while Creck Sporting remains in 8th with seven points.

Mighty Waka-Waka Tigers secured a dramatic 92nd-minute winner courtesy of Precious Chipungu against Chitipa United, propelling them to 9th place with seven points, while Chitipa United dropped to 13th.

With Silver Strikers leading the league with an impressive 13 points from five games, the competition in the TNM Super League remains intense, with several teams vying for supremacy and others battling to avoid relegation.
