Silver Strikers executive committee has summoned the coach Stan Chirwa-led technical panel to explain the Bankers’ catastrophic dip in form.
The meeting follows three straight TNM Super League first round defeats that have put a big dent on Silver’s title aspirations.
Silver acting general secretary Fred Kalonga confirmed on Thursday that the meeting would take place during the week.
The team has lost at home 3-2, 2-0 and 1-0 to Lilongwe rivals Blue Eagles, Civo United and Epac in the past three consecutive weeks.
“The results are not what we expected. May be there is need to [develop] performance parameters for them and use them to measure their performance. Depending on the report from the coach, we may have to set targets,” Kalonga said before the Eagles game.
In a post-match interview with MBC Radio 2 FM after Saturday’s defeat, Chirwa said his team was simply going through a usual bad patch and they were fortunate they are experiencing it during the first round.
“We definitely need some reinforcements. We gifted them all the goals,” Chirwa told the radio station after this sixth defeat that has Silver stagnant on 19 points from 13 games. Silver have two games to wind up the season.
Some senior players contacted by The Nation attributed the struggles to shortfall in quality playing personnel, saying most of the new recruits are not up to scratch.
The Bankers lost goalkeeper Charles Swini, midfielders Frank Banda and Young Chimodzi and striker Chawanangwa Kawonga to foreign clubs and recruited players such as Victor Limbani, Timothy Chitedze and Tizgobere Kumwenda, among others. n
