Epac United on Sunday accused Bullets FC of using rugby tactics to beat them in the TNM Super League on Sunday.
Twenty four hours after being axed in the Standard Bank Cup against Mafco United, Bullets vented their anger on Epac beating them narrowly 1-0.
In a physically encounter at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre, the People’s team notched their lone goal through a long range from former Silver Strikers midfielder Jelesi Lufeyo.
Bullets played an offensive game in the first half but all their scoring chances were frustrated by Epac goalkeeper Lemani Nthala, who was shown a red card in the second half.
Epac mentor Abasi Makawa accused their opponents of playing “rugby”.
“Bullets came to play rugby and this affected my boys. But l am not that disappointed because we will rectify our problems during training, “said Makawa, who saw two of his regular players Tsanzo Dalio and Jafali Chande being rushed to the hosapital due to injuries.
Bullets coach Eding’ton Ng’onamo described their victory as a morale booster to his players but was quick to accuse the officiating personnel.
“This game was marred by poor officiation, but all in all lam very delighted with the performance of my players. I was impressed with our defence apart from the striking force which l still have difficulties with it, “said Ng’onamo, who has not lost any game in the League since he was appointed the head coach.
In the old capital city Zomba, Mighty Wanderers had a successful trip after hammering Zomba United 3-0.
