Nyasa Big Bullets coach Rodgers Yasin believes his charges have made a statement of intent at Kamuzu Stadium on as they continued their winning start to the season in some style with a 6-0 rout on Kamuzu Barracks in the TNM Super League to confirm they are genuine title contendors.
“We’re not getting too carried
away, but that’s what we needed. And now it’s about maintaining that for the rest of the games,” said Yasin.
The 6-0 triumph represents the biggest win in the league and acts as quite the warning sign to league rivals the the title is for Bullets to lose.

Chiukepo Msowoya was Bullets inspiration as he scored twice, Bright Munthali also made his mark with two stunning goals. Mussa Manyenje was the other scorer.
A dispirited, broken Kamuzu Barracks failed to tick and most of their players looked lost.
