Bullets destroy Silver to move third: Malawi TNM Super League

Nyasa Big Bullets boosted their TNM Super League  title hopes in emphatic fashion and damaged Silver Strikers  in the process with a stylish victory on Saturday at the  Kamuzu Stadium.

Bullets and Silver match at Kamuzu Stadium

It moved the Peoples Team up to  third  in the table, a point  behind  Be Forward Wanderers  but having played two  more games, while Silver Strikers  – also a match ahead of Wanderers  – are in sixth position.

Bullets assistant coach, Peter Mponda  admitted  Saturday’s victory would provide a psychological lift as they bid to defend the title.

And Bullets  will take huge confidence from the manner and margin of their first win against the bankers, who failed to play their usual carpet football.

Hassani Kajoke  put Bullets  on the path to victory with a goal in the first half , but the bankers equalized minutes later through Mike Teteh.

Real   damage was inflicted on  Silver with a double salvo from Precious Sambani and Chimwemwe Idana in the second half to make it 3-1.

Bullets  game plan worked to perfection, with the presence of young defenders in Charles Petro and Nickson Nyasulu  to keep Khuda Muyaba and Mike Teteh   at bay,  Chimwemwe Idana who was also voted man of the match ruling midfield and Gomegzani Gondwe performing the dual role of   terrorising  Silver Strikers  with his pace.

Bullets fans celebrated as if they knew the significance of this result and three points that will surely inject them with real self-belief as the title enters closer to the end of the first round.

For Silver Strikers , their decline continues from the golden days of early season  and on Saturday they lacked inspiration and a threadbare squad was exposed in defence with the absence of Nigerian towering defender Mustaf  Sherrif, who was serving three yellow cards.

Silver , as expected,  started with Duncan Nyoni and Thuso Paipi on the wings, but for Paipi  he was unable to exert any serious influence apart from Nyoni who caused havoc to Bullets defence in the first half.

For Muyaba he  posted  the bankers  only serious threat with an effort that he pulled just wide and a header that  went wide, while Chimodzi Jnr presence was felt as he managed to stop Mike Kwate on several occasions.

Bullets  made  changes  in the  second half, sending on Chiukepo Msowoya for Brighton Munthali while Nkwate went out for Precious Phiri.

Towards the end of the game, Silver  were  poor in their passes and their defence made silly blunders that Bullets were unfortunate not to score more than three goals.
