The Bankers are on second position with 37 points tied with leaders Mafco FC but the two are separated with goal difference.

Nyasa Big Bullets moved to third after beating rivals Mighty Wanderers in a Blantyre derby 2-1 on Saturday.

Veteran striker Charles Ngosi helped Blue Eagles to salvage a point against a much improved MTV Max Bullets who had a grand game on Sunday afternoon at Nankhaka Stadium in Lilongwe.

Max Bullets goal was scored by Sparrow Msowoya.

The corps are on third position and again they have 36 points.

Karonga United and Wizard FC also played out a 1-1 draw at Mzuzu Stadium.

Only Red Lions registered in a win on Sunday to move to position nine with 26 points.

They beat Dwangwa United 1-0 thanks to a Lottie Chabinga loan strike.

Commenting on their game against Silver, Azam Tigers coach Gerald Phiri described the game as balanced affair but hailed his charges for the team work and fighting spirit.

“It was a balanced game, I thank the boys that they did not look upon themselves down as we were trailling, they fought hard and equalised. We beat them in the first round we wanted to do the same but thats how football is all about we are happpy with a point gained,” said Phiri.

His counterpart Lovemore Fazili said the game didn’t go according to their plan.

“Sometimes game plan fails. We started well but in the second half the boys were tired maybe because of the hot weather.  We atlas created some scoring opportunities that we could have scored goals but we failed. All in all we got a point but losing two points is painful at this stage of the competition” said Fazili.

On his part, Blue Eagles Assistant Coach Wilson Chidati saluted MTV Max Bullets for giving them a tough ride.

Chidati said they are not panicking but admitted they need to be composed in their next games as anything can happen at this stage of
the competition.

In other fixtures on Saturday, MTV Max Bullets drew 1-1 against Epac FC in a game which ended prematuary due to disagreements.

Meanwhile, Super League of Malawi (Sulom) are investigating the matter.
