The Bullets however, sailed through before a packed Kamuzu Stadium in the commercial capital, Blantyre after their first leg 1-0 win to qualify 3-2 on aggregate and will next face either Al Hilal from Sudan or KMKM of Zanzibar.

The crowds included Sports Minister Grace Chiumia and her Energy and Mining counterpart Atupele Muluzi- a Bullets supporter.

Bullets opened the score sheet in the 36th minutes when Victor Limbani planted the ball in the net of the visitors after connecting a cross from captain Fischer Kondowe.

Striker Tizgobere Kumwenda who scored the vital goal in Comoros, added the second goal seven minutes later.

The first half ended 2-0 in favour of the hosts.

As Bullets eased off – creating no meaningful opening in the second half – the visitors grew in confidence.

Fomboni’s Marius Alfonse and Dafida M’madi had, in a space of four minutes, wiped out the Bullets’ first-half lead.

Eight minutes into the second half Marius Alphonse pulled one back for Fomboni through Dafida M’madi penalty kick after Bullets defender Yamikani Fodya’s fouled overlapping defender Asa Abdallah.

Mozambican referee Anibo Amando Antonio did not hesitate to award the penalty and show a yellow card to Fodya.

The Bullets held on to their lead to sail through at the expense of the visitors who had arrived in Blantyre on Wednesday night so exhausted after two days of travelling by road through neighbouring Tanzania.

Bullets coach Nsazurwimo Ramadhan said his charged “got carried away, thinking that it was over”.

Fomboni’s Malawian star Wister Phiri who had lavishly praised Bullets before the game, made it clear that the Peoples Team  had played into their hands.

“We knew what their weaknesses were and we exploited them,” said Phiri.

Phiri said Bullets were lucky to escape defeat in their hands, especially in second half.

“They were just lucky, otherwise we nearly beat them,” said Phiri.

Bullets: Vincet Gona, Sankhani Mkandawire, Jaffalie Chande (Mussa Manyenje), Pilirani Zonda, Yamikani Fodya, Bashir Maunde, Victor Limbani, Dalitso Sailesi, Fisher Kondowe, Henry Kabichi (James Chilapondwa).

    So far so good. This is football nothing less.
    Bullets has never been perfect neither the Flames know how to win.

    Mistakes are always there in any game,but BB needs to build on their strengths.
    Which team does not lose in the world, home or away?

    You know what, parents cheer their child when she/he takes a first step to walk.
    Its a learning process.

    Bravo maule!!!

  9. A COMMONER says:

    I smell trouble in the next encounter, the teams to the north of our country aim 4 a kill while BB play 2 make a name among themselves who is the best. Remember this is not chibuku tournament, its a continental tournament where the best team takes it all. Pull up ur socks and dont hurt us with ur attitude on the pitch plz.

  10. aMUMA says:

    drawing at home to a team like FOMBONI…forget beating Al Hilal! unless they change of both mindset, attitude and tactics!

  12. ungwelu says:

    If BB continue letting nude supporters and old men dancing like whores, it should forget about any success ion the next round.

  13. here we go again says:

    very disappointing display by bullets, it is very doubtful if they qualify into the group stages,trust me their road will end in this preliminary round, sorry noisy fans of the noisy team.

    To say the truth Bullets will not go far koma support mwalandira musaname

  15. Chikopa says:

    Iwe kananji palibe chimene angachite amasewelesa ma defenders atatu ngati van gaal ndimpikisanotu waukulu uwu under Ramadan the team is improving bullets now is playing better football like bacelona remind me 1998 the trial of Andrew chikhosi, chikondi banda ., muzipase mwangonde ,nkhwazi Ramadan was coach kananji ndi mwana inu

  16. Hardson says:

    No! The team has completely to the best. Am not trying to underate Mr Elia he is indeed a good coach but with Internatinal games it’s something of different nature. Bullets with Elia has lost almost 4 times with EPAC having an upper hand but with the new coach we are yet to be defeated. Wonders after punching them several piriods of time they finally punched us in the end times drawing twice to Silver strikers I don’t know how did with Civo if not draws again. What the solely need to do is to have full concentration on the work it is weaving. It’s more spicing that we were the first to score those 2 goals in the first half which is un usual with Bullets we knew in the past. Tayamba bwino tipitilize.

    koma ali pa tower yu ali ndi mwana? where is the decency here? coz of a 90 min game? congrats my team. you make me a proud Malawian.

  20. opportunist says:

    Am Bullets fan but what yesterday could have ended into a disaster .How can the whole team plus technical panel could have underestimate their opponent .I still believe if could have brought back Kananji into the system otherwise i don’t see us proceeding

  21. mfumusinyasa says:

    BB players have no winning mentality. They got carried away too much and the coach could pick that out. Its good we attempted to play in the continental showpiece but l think we do not have a long way to go. We just dont have the depth

    Edit Before You Post, Wrong Spellings

    These people you call fans alibe zochita!

  24. Afanaze says:

    No panic . This was just a fair result on football perfect day and the winners of the series are through. Conglants Bullets continue to make the nation proud.

  25. msukwa says:

    Yona Malunga wachita manyazi. Mphawi ameneyo?

  26. special advisor says:

    I like stories with a happy ending. Bullets, thanks for telling one so successfully. You are a flag carrier. You make the nation proud!

    But I was musing about the goingson during the second half. If one thinks deeply about it, as a nnation we face challenges because we like to be complacent. We throw parties to celebrate success, too early. Then we throw caution to the wind, we stop hard work, we spend lavishily then we become the poorest and most vulnerable lot in the entire universe. May be we need an inspiring motto as a nation.

  27. mpumulo massa says:

    we need to work hard….otherwise we will regret loosing the services of Mr kananji

  28. Kokotowa says:

    Eliya Kananji!

  29. Shoes says:

    Bring Kananji back

  30. chemembe says:

    If Bullets continues To play the way they did then we only have One game To watch here at home.They Will never qualify for the third found.

  31. Wagona nkhule waliwa says:

    l fully bet that BB will not beat AL HILAL. awaa ndakana ini mwana wa mtonga

  32. Chikopa says:

  38. Nkhombokombo says:
