“It’s good we have fought the battle for our own and this is what we wanted to remain in the league, our focus will be on how we will do about next season. We are also trying to put everything in place for our next assignment in CAF Confederations Cup where we will start in preliminary round and we hope for the best.
“We relied on this game to remain in the league that’s why we worked so hard to make sure we win the match and at the end of the day we beat the soldiers at our Dedza stadium.” Makawa happily said.
