Collins Nkhulambe and Chiukepo Msowoya struck twice each as Nyasa Big Bullets saw off Kamuzu Baracks in a TNM super League match played on Sunday afternoon at the Kamuzu stadium.
The defending Champions were on target midway the first half with the former Mzuzu United striker Nkhulambe tapping in from a Henry Magetsi Kabichi through ball.
Mussa Manyenje could have doubled the lead five minutes later but his shot was too weak to pass KB goalkeeper Lemani Nthala. KB on other hand got the better chance to level the scores towards the end of 45 minutes but a Davie Banda header was cleared by Bullets keeper Swadick Sanudi.
Bullets made a halftime substitution with Diverson Mlozi replacing Manyenje. However it was the Lilongwe based Soldiers who got the best from tactical substitutions with Ben Hojani scoring the equaliser.
The champions were then awarded a penalty a few minutes past the hour mark, a decision which was protested by KB players for about 5 minutes before accepting. As usual, Chiukepo Msowoya struck the spot kick to put the people’s team in front.
Soon after the penalty, KB players looked dejected and Bullets capitalised with Msowoya and Nkhulambe scoring 2 more goals for the defending Champions.
Speaking to Nyasa Times after the game, Team Manager for KB, Francis Shaba launched a tirade at the referee who he claimed bungled things up badly in the game to gift Bullets the victory.
He said his side deserved at least a point form the game on a balance of play.
Shaba issued a withering condemnation of the ‘biased’ referee.
For his part, Rahim Ishmael for Bullets said it’s good to bag in maximum points at the expense of a strong team like KB.
The win means Bullets move second on the log table 3 points away from leaders Blue Eagles.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
