Big Bullets claimed a second consecutive casualty from the military after edging Kamuzu Barracks 1-0 at Kamuzu Stadium with Epac FC crashing rookies Chikwawa United 3-0 at Kalulu to remain TNM Super League leaders with three wins from three games.
The result will keep Bullets at the summit of the the flagship log table with nine points having won all their three games so far. They have now gone five points clear.
Bullets kept their noses in front led by veteran Fischer Kondowe, who was voted man of the match after being introduced from the bench.
Kondowe changed the tempo of the game after being introduced for injured Yamikani Fodya. He was also the architect for Limbani’s goal after a well curved free-kick.
Bullets were also a marvel to watch with their free- flowing football especially from the likes of newly catch Mussa Manyenje, Tizyowere Kumwenda and Jelesi Lufeyo.
In defence, Sankhani ‘Mkango Plus’ Nyirenda and Douglas Chirambo stood firmly by not allowing Weld kuliwa and Joel Chipofya to find any space.
Bullets could have even scored many goals but Diverson Mlozi squandered a golden opportunity with Lemani Nthara already beaten in goals.
The soldiers were let down by their striking force which were jittery in front of the goal.
The absence of their midfielder maestro Harvey Mkacha, who is nursing an ankle injury, was felt.
Bullets coach Elijah Kananji said his team was achieving his target.
“My aim was to have a flying start to the league. We need not to lose our focus because l feel we are in the right lane,” he said.
Kananji, however, warned his boys not to be complacent in the coming fixtures, stressing the season has not yet reached the critical stage.
Kamuzu Barracks assistant coach Abasi Makawa said lucky was not on their side and assured their fans that they will rectify their problems in their next game.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
