The skipper indicated that the result was not what they hoped for but was delighted with the performance especially in the second half.

‘I’m happy with the performance of the boys especially in the second half. We played better football and created more chances but like the coach said, it is still in our hands despite getting just a point today. We must go to Malawi with the right attitude and play for the positive result on Monday.’ He said.
