Eagles in crisis meeting today

Blue Eagles chairperson Elijah Kachikuwo has called for a crisis meeting today (Wednesday) to arrest the club’s sudden plunge in form.

According to Kachikuwo, the meeting will take place at Nankhaka Stadium where the club’s management will seek an explanation for the poor run and also seek solutions from both players and technical staff.

“We are concerned with the poor form. We want to find reasons and possibly find answers before we plunge further,” said Kachikuwo.

Eagles, who at the beginning of the festive season were viewed as hot contenders of the TNM Super League title with a backlog of seven games, are now five places from the bottom after losing 10 points in five games.

They have lost four points at home within 24 hours and are in danger of plunging further. On Friday they shared points with Big Bullets after drawing 1-1 while on Saturday they lost 1-0 to Epac FC.

Despite boasting of top strikers in John Banda, Ben Hojani and Chikondi Mpulula, the police side has been finding it hard to score goals.

The club’s coach Deklek Msakakuona is at a loss of words over the team’s lack of consistency.

“It’s had to understand what is happening with the boys. They easily lose concentration and conceded when you least expect them,” he said.

Eagles are 11 points behind leaders Escom and have four games remaining, while Escom have two.

Eagles have another tricky fixture at home against Red Lions on Saturday and a loss will mean bye to the title.
