The central bankers were first to score early in the first half with Mathews Sibale on target from a free kick . The Lilongwe based team were a marvel to watch in the entire first half but failed to capitalise on their better possession to punish the people’s team.

Soon after the recess, Bullets were awarded a penalty which Captain Chiukepo Msowoya converted. Some Silver Strikers players and officials were seen  fuming at the decision to award Bullets a penalty but later on went on to accept the decision.

Midway the second half, Diverson  Mlozi scored  a second goal for Bullets that ensured maximum points are in the bag for the people’s team to the delight of their Coach Franco Ndawa.

“I am very happy that my boys are getting the results positively and hope this is the way to go,” said Ndaw, who  previously coached Silver.

“We missed a number of regular players due to injuries but the guys who came in to fill their gaps were able to cope with the pressure. The win sends a strong message to the rest of the teams that we are ready to challenge for the title,” said Ndawa.

In his remarks, Team Manager for Silver Strikers Francisco Songo said  harsh decisions by the referee costed them victory against Bullets.

“We were harshly punished by the officiating personel.  I think it’s not on that the same team gets penalties almost in each and every game. That proves something and the league’s governing body has to look into that,” said Songo.

The win moves Bullets from position nine to six on the log table while Silver Strikers remain on top of the table with 29 points.

Silver should just honourably accept defeat. Wanderers the previous day against Blue Eagles also had a penalty awarded against them which enabled Blue Eagle to win the match but Wanderers did not complain about the penalty decision -they accepted the defeat gracefully when their team manager Steve Madeira was being interviewed by reporters. What is wrong with Silver? Their (Silver) kept arguing with the referee for every decision against them throughout the match.Please borrow a leaf from Wanderers-they are true professionals

I paid K5000 to seat at VIP stand only to be told there are no chairs so I was directed to seat anywhere on the sides. Shame. I was left stunned.

Lose honorably Mr Songo. I didn’t watch the game but heard it on radio 2FM where the commentators mentioned with emphasis that Lucky Malata had handled the ball in the penalty area – not once, but twice, were they also biased>
