Big Bullets striker Douglas Chirambo’s fired well taken free-kick with five minutes to full regulation time in the elite TNM Super League was enough to settle a lackluster match against Envirom F.C at Kamuzu Stadium.

The People’s Team, who performed poorly in Saturday’s encounter with the absence of their pivotal midfielder. Chimango Kayira  and  their wonderboy Gabadihno Mhango not making into the starting line-up.

Envirom defender was t sent off forcing his side to lack any spark and looked unlikely to produce a goal with one man disadvantage.

Despite playing one player more, Bullets lacked any vibrancy in their attacking play.

The introduction of Gabadino Mhango in the second half changed the tempo of the game as kept the on his probing play against defenders in search for the net.

Gabadino’s presence was felt with five minutes to wrap-up the match when he was brought down after sneaking through two Envirom defenders to force the referee to award a free kick not far from the danger zone.

It was Chirambo’s well taken free-kick that  hit the net and that was enough to claim full points for the reds..

Big Bullets coach Edington Ng’onamo attributed their victory to experience as he conceded that they were disjointed.

Ng’onamo said he  was pleased to see Bullets  take a 1-0 win from a testing encounter.

“I thought that it was a difficult game. We changed a lot of players, we took some risks, but in the end it was important to win this game,” Ng’onamo told Nyasa Times.

Envirom coach Mario Gadaga blamed the loss on lack of composure on the part of his strikers but he stressed that he was satisfied with the performance of his troops.
