Winger Ndaziona Chatsalira struck a lone goal for Silver Strikers on Sunday to send the Malawi TNM Super League defending champions on top.

Silver Strikers was playing against Evirom at Silver Stadium.

The match reportedly started at high tempo with the rookies Evirom, who beat Silver by a similar margin in the first leg, seemingly playing more not to concede than to score.

But Chatsalira had other ideas when he struck from range deep in the opening half to send the stadium into celebrations and much to the delight of Silver coach Stain Chirwa.

“I am very happy for the boys. It was a tough match but we rose up to the challenge and now we just have to finish the job in the last game,” Chirwa told reporters in a post-match interview.

With that goal, Silver went on top of the standings on 50 points from 27 games and can retain the title for a record fourth consecutive season if they beat Mighty Wanderers this Saturday away at Balaka Stadium.

Silver have displaced at the top Mafco who have 48 points with an away game against Civo United this Saturday remaining to wind up the season in the 15-member league.

Mafco are second followed on 47 points by Moyale Barracks and Kamuzu Barracks (KB).

Moyale finish the season with a Mzuzu derby against bottom-placed Mzuzu United this Saturday, whereas KB, who beat Epac FC 2-0 on Saturday, host sixth-placed Blue Eagles this Saturday.

Lying fifth on 45 points are Mighty Wanderers who returned to winning ways when defeating Blantyre United 1-0 at Kalulu Stadium in Nchalo on Saturday afternoon.

Striker Victor Mpinganjira scored early in the first half, making the most of a spilled United goalkeeper Peter Munthali’s ball to pounce home from close range.

The Lions are sixth on 42 points while Civo have 34 points, four ahead of the fourth from the bottom United who lost to Wanderers.

On Saturday, there was also a moment of respite for Wanderers’ rivals Big Bullets who made a winning return to their Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday afternoon when promoted head coach Gerald Phiri Senior registered a rare win in upsetting relegation bound Mponela United 3-1.

The Bullets’ joint leading scorer (seven goals) Henry Kabichi netted twice before being joined on the score-sheet by Douglas Chirambo; only for the visitors to claim a consolation through Fabio Kapendi.

The win took the Bullets’ tally to 40 points from 27 games on position eight whereas Mponela remain 13th on 23 points with a game to wind up the season. On the individual front, Ishmael Thindwa of Epac lead on 15 goals.
