Bullets deliver statement of intent for title defence – Malawi TNM Super League

If Big Bullets wanted to send an ominous message that it will take something special to remove their status as Malawi TNM Super League champions, midfielder Dalitso ‘Di Maria’ Sailesi 70th minute thunderous free-kick only goal beating stubborn Airbone Rangers delivered it at Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday.

The former Blantyre United player kept the unbeaten run and title defence on course in the second half, when he scored on a well curved free kick which caught Airborne keeper Christopher Kalira off guard.

Big Bullets coach Mabvuto Lungu said the win was important in their quest to finish top in the first round of the elite League.

“By any means we had to win to be on the right frame of mind before we wrap up the first round with a game against Epac FC,” he said.

In the first half, Bullets created numerous chances but Chiukepo Msowoya and Mussa Manyenje failed to find the net.

Airborne Rangers frustrated Bullets in the first 45 minutes by tighten their defence but their main problem was not pushing upfront.

Airborne Rangers coach Kondwani Gawani said they would polish the striking force, which let them down.

“We had several chances but our striking force failed to tick. We will still work on finishing,” said Gawani.

However, the game was not that entertaining, as both sides resorted in aerial balls to the dissatisfaction of thousands of spectators that thronged to Kamuzu Stadium.

The home side failed to play their usual grass cutter football with the absence of several key players like Yamikani Fodya and Jaffalie Chande.

The only Bullets players, who were outstanding, were Fischer Kondowe and Dalitso Sailesi. The duo were a marvel to watch with their pace, well curved crosses and hard working spirit.

On the part of the soldiers, Asedi Ayami was not impressive upfront, as he was kept on the tight rope by Sankhani Mkandawire.

Stain Malata, young brother to Silver Strikers defender Lucky Malata tried his best to put Bullets midfield under siege but the damage was already done.

At Kalulu Stadium, Wisdom Mtika was on target as Moyale humbled Peter Mponda’s Fisd Wizards.

Wizards remain on six points from 10 games whereas Moyale jumped to 15 points from 12 games.

In Mzuzu, Blue Eagles lost 2-0 to 14th positioned Mzuni.

In Lilongwe, Civo United moved out of relegation after beating Kamuzu Barracks to register a third successive win and they now have 12 points.

Manase Chiyesa scored the lone goal for Kamuzu Barracks 27 minutes into the first-half.
