Nyasa Big Bullets made a statement of intent when they launched their TNM league title defence campaign with a 4-0 win over TN Stars at Kasungu Stadium on Saturday April 13 2019.
New signing from Civil Sporting FC Gomezgani Chirwa put the championd ahead before Patrick Phiri increased the lead.
Later in the game, last season’s top goal scorer Chukepo Msowoya added misery on TN Stars when he scored a brace.
Bullets Coach Calisto Pasuwa hailed his charges for the splendid performance after the match and described the win as a good start.
On a lighter note, the Zimbabwean tactician blamed his players for not being clinical in finishing up front to punish further the ‘inexperienced’ TN Stars.
“If we were clinical we could have had a wider margin victory,” said Pasuwa.
His opposite number Meke Mwase who has just been appointed as Malawi National Senior Football Team interim Head Coach admitted his side came second best more especially in the second half.
Mwase said they managed to contain the People’s Team in the first half but slipped over in the second half.
