Malawi TNM Super League champions Big Bullets wants to defend their title as invincible by going through the whole of this season unbeaten, the club officials have said.
Bullets assistant coach Mabvuto Lungo said the champions are capable of going through this season undefeated.
“We will keep winning and where we are not good, we shall avoid defeat. The team look really strong,” Lungu said.
As it stands, Bullets are looking good at the top of the league table after opening a five-point gap against their rivals and title contenders Mighty Be Forward Wanderers . The champions are unbeaten with 26 points.
Bullets team manager Billy Tewesa said the club will be e looking to keep that gap if not widening it.
“We can do it (go unbeaten all season), the season is almost midway,” Tewesa said.
