Silver Strikers and Chitipa United FC have shared the spoils in a 0-0 stale mate during the TNM Super League match on Saturday, at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe.
In a post-match interview, Coach for Silver Strikers, Pieter De Jongh lavished the team’s opportunities while calling out for improved fair play as he lashed out at the officiation by referee Davie Chombo,
“We created a lot of chances, about 5 to 6 in the first half however we need fair play in Malawian football, there was an incident that needed a red card in the first half but the referee refused to give it.
“The referee stole two points from me and my team and he also did not add the additional time at the end of the second half, how is that possible,” queried De Jongh.
Meanwhile Coach for Chitipa United, MacDonald Nginde expressed satisfaction with the result and hailed his charges for taking heed of game instructions.
“We travelled, this was their home match and since we had also played on Wednesday in the FDH Bank Cup against Dedza Dynamos, I am happy with our performance against Silver Strikers.”
“The team is working hard, I will reveal my plans for the season after the first round of games as of now we are still collecting points,” said Nginde.
