Bullets have beaten their rivals

Sulumba, who was at Mighty Be Forward Wanderers on loan last season but moved to Bullets on a free transfer, capitalised on a Kondwani Lufeyo error to give Bullets the lead.

Bullets striker Chiukepo Msowoya secured the win when he scored the last goal of the game just before recess as Bullets beat rivals Mighty Be Forward Wanderers 2-0.

The People’s Team were on top from the first whistle but it was the error by Lufeyo that allowed Sulumba to find the back of the net on two minutes.

Mighty Wanderers could have levelled the scoring shortly after the Bullets goal but Patrick Gunde sliced his rebound just wide of Ernest Kakhobwe’s left hand post after the goalkeeper had denied Francis Mlimbika from scoring.

On the 20th minute of the match, Mighty Wanderers goalkeeper Nenani Jiwaya was called into action again when he saved Msowoya’s shot to deny the Bullets forward from scoring the second goal of the match.

Jimmy Zakazaka again came close to leveling the scores with 17 minutes remaining before the end of the first half, but he sliced the ball over the cross ball.

As the first half was going towards the end, Chiukepo Msowoya headed in Big Bullets’ second goal of the match after he was well set by Bashir Maunde on the 42nd minute of the match and the first half ended 2-0 in favour of Nyasa Big Bullets.

The game came to life again in the opening stages of the second period when Jack Chamangwana brought in Felix Zulu, Rafique Mussa, Peter Wadabwa, Luke Milanzi, and Olasunkanmi Opeyemi who completely changed the entire face of the match.

Wadabwa was later denied by Kakhobwe after the striker came inches away from scoring for the Nomads.

Wanderers nearly scored in the dying minutes of the second half after some fine interplay between Felix Zulu and Opeyemi, but Milanzi failed to tap in a nice cross from the Nigerian player Opeyemi.

The Nigerian could have again pulled one goal back for the Nomads with a powerful header but he was denied by Big Bullets defenders who cleared the ball on the line. The game ended 2-0 in favour of Big Bullets.

Speaking to the media after the match, Wanderers coach Jack Chamangwana said his team missed a lot of scoring chances and hailed the Nigerian striker Opeyemi who was making his first debut for the Nomads.

“He is a good player and Malawian players will learn a lot from him. He is coming from Nigerian second tier league and he has proved that he is a good player,” said Chamangwana.

Big Bullets coach Franco Ndawa also praised his players for playing according to his instructions.
