Blue Eagles escaped TNM Super League relegation by the skin of their teeth last season—now they seem determined to fly further away to the safety zone.
Eagles beat rookies Rumphi United 2-0 in Lilongwe on Sunday with John Malidadi and Gilbert Chirwa on target to make it two wins on the spin.
The police-owned side now top the 16-member log table with six points in what is a perfect start for new coach Elia Kananji who replaced Gerald Phiri Senior.
In another game, fourth positioned Dedza Dynamos drew 1-1 with Karonga United who scored through Josiah Duwa while the hosts’ goal came from Clement Nyondo.
Elsewhere in Mzuzu, Ghanaian Mike Tetteh bagged a brace for third-placed Ekwendeni Hammers to share the 2-2 spoils with Mafco who had Zikani Sichinga and defender Paul Ndlovu on target.
Rookies Sable Farming are still looking for their first win after they drew 0-0 with TN Stars whereas Mighty Tigers and second-placed Kamuzu Barracks settled for a one-all draw, both games on Sunday.
Kamuzu Barracks have four points from two games.
