In the first round of the TNM super league the teams played to a draw then Moyale Barracks dumped Silver Strikers out the FDH Bank cup through penalties.

In response to whether Silver Strikers will catch up with ChitipaUnited, Mighty Mukuru Wanderers and FCB Nyasa Big Bullets, De Jongh said it is possible since the team’s approach to every game remains the same.

“The situation remains the same. Of course, it is not easy. However, we know our players and look forward to the next matches starting with Dedza Dynamos on Saturday,” he said.
