Big Bullets hopes of moving top of the TNM Super League table were dealt a blow as Azam Tigers held them to a 0-0 draw on Tuesday at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.
The People’s team felt the absence of their boy-wonder Gabadihno Mhango, who was serving suspension after accumulating two yellow cards and injured Fischer Kondowe was felt during the entire game.
However, Bullets fans have all the reasons to point accusing fingers at Heston Munthali, Welani Nyirenda, Lawson Chilewe and Ian Chinyama,who missed a lot of scoring opportunities.
For instance, Munthali was the first casualty in the 39th minute when he shot went wide with Tigers custodian already beaten.
Another notable chance, came in the second half, when Chinyama failed to notch in a well taken cross from Dalitso Sailesi,who had a grant game.
Chinyama face to face with Nenani Juwawo in Tigers goal to beat failed just to tap in the ball inside the net to the dismay of many Bullets fans,who thronged Kamuzu Stadium in their large numbers.
In the first half, Azam Tigers with the experience of many players who were at Escom United like Bashir Maunde, Lawrence Milanzi, Chimwemwe Nyakamera were a marvel to watch but they lacked the killer punch in the eighteen yard box.
Tigers, who were outplayed in the second half, enjoyed massive support from Mighty Wanderers ganyu supporters.
Towards the end of the match Bullets accelerated their gear but their front line was blunt.
Big Bullets coach Edington Ngonamo, who attributed that the absence of Gabadihno was felt said lucky was not on their side while his Tigers assistant coach counterpart Mac Donald Yobe described the outcome of the game as fair but blamed his striking force for failing to stamp authority in the eighteen yard box.
