Gerald Phiri: Tigers held by rookies

The rookies almost caused an upset to Azam Tigers but inexperience costed them their game as they twice gave away the lead and on top of that missed a penalty.

Mayeso Mphanje opened the score sheet in the opening minutes of the game before the favourites Azam Tigers had settled into the game.

But Tigers equalised through Brighton Muthali.

First half ended 1-1.

In the second half, Bullets took the lead again through Bongani Kaipa but their lead was cancelled again by Elia Munthali.

They were awarded a penalty deep into the second half but Clement Ng’ombe failed to convert the spot kick.

Tigers head coach Gerald Phiri admitted his players indeed failed to tick.

Phiri blamed his charges for conceding goals so early both in both halves which he said affected their game plan.

He, however, said he was happy with the result having played a team they never new their style of play.

“We struggled but we are happy with the way the boys played because we never new these boys since they are just new,” said Phiri who promised good results in the next coming games.

His counterpart Patrick Kulemeka who took over the mantle from controversial Leo Mpulula said he hope to do better in the coming games.

He said some of his boys have never played in the Super league hence committing school-boy mistakes which he promised to rectify once they go back to the drawing board.

But he applauded his boys for the resilient performance.

“In all fairness let me recommend my boys, they did a good job and it is a good start and that is how we need to start off” said Kulemeka.
