Third placed Nyasa Big Bullets invades the capital over the weekend to face sixth placed Civil Sporting and 10th placed plus TNM Defending Champions, Kamuzu Barracks in the second round encounters of the Super League to be played at Civo Stadium.
Bullets are 34 points from 17 games have a date with Civil Sporting on Saturday and 24 hours later they will face struggling Champions, Kamuzu Barracks.
Civo Stadium will be a bee hive of entertainment as fans will be looking forward to see how the “People Team”, Bullets will manage to handle the two games as they will be playing catch up with leaders Mighty Be Forward Wanderers.
Bullets coming from 1-0 win over Red Lions in Balaka on Saturday will give them the hope that it is manageable to collect maximum points away from home while Civil Sporting should be going through patch ups as they struggled to secure a 1-1 draw against much organized Mzuni.
Kamuzu Barracks deep in form should be a source of concern as they suffered a 2-0 defeat at the hands of the visiting students of Mzuzu, Mzuni at the same Civo stadium.
Although the champions have attributed their loss to the absence of most of their key players due to injuries they picked against Wanderers in Balaka some weeks ago.
It look like chances of retaining the crown, is getting slim for the champions who are placed 10th and they are 19 points away to catch current leaders.
Both encounters promises fire power owing to the fact that men in black will provide good officiation.
The Bullets seems to be serious contenders for the title if they will collect maximum points then they will have the chance to narrow the gap against their rivals Wanderers.
Bullets are trailing seven points while Wanderers are 41 points from the same number of games played 17 while Silver has played 18 with 38 points three shot to climb back the summit.
Leagued leaders wanderers are at home to Mafco on Saturday and they will be a replay of the Carlsberg cup tussle in which Nomads won 1-0 at the same venue Balaka Stadium.
With Esau Kanyenda on song Mafco should watch him and closely monitor his moves as he has two goals to his name.
Dwangwa United will provide litmus test to second placed Silver Strikers at Chitowe Stadium as the bankers have gone 18 games unbeaten.
Will the sugar boys be the first this season to dent Silvers’ 100 per cent record? The area 47 outfit need to avoid accumulating more draws which could prove to be too costly in the final analysis.
