Bullets let 2-0 lead slip away for draw with Civo: Malawi TNM Super League
Big Bullets supporters draped in red and white colours left Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre biting their nails when their team came under serious questioning after throwing away a commanding lead to draw 2-2 against Civo United on Sunday in the TNM Super League.
“We are disappointed to be held to a draw,” Bullets coach Eliah Kanaji said. “We should have closed the game.”
He noted: “There was a lack of concentration at times.”
The Civil Servant’s Charles Chilembo’s equalising goal in the added time broke the hearts of thousands of the Peoples Team fans, who most of them took ten minutes before leaving the stadium after the last whistle.
Civo were trailing 2-0 to Bullets with goals from Diverson Mlozi and Henry Kabichi after displaying some fantastic football in the first 45 minutes.
Come second half, the Capital city giants were a marvel to watch with excellent touches and were effective in the attack especially through Lawrence Mwehiwa, who was introduced in this half.
Despite netting the first goal for his side, Mlozi was also the main culprit in missing too many scoring opportunities.
Bullets also struggled a lot in the midfield with the absence of James Chilapondwa, who was serving two yellow cards giving Civo United Patrick Gunde to manoeuvre freely.
After the last whistle, the visitors together with Mighty Wanderers supporters celebrated ecstatically while disbelieving Bullets fans spent time gnashing their teeth.
Civo United coach Oscar Kaunda praised his charges for coming back from a 2-0 trail to draw against the Peoples Team.
Kaunda said going back to Lilongwe with four points was not bad. The Civil Servants defeated Chikwawa United on Saturday.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
