Written by  Yamikani Simutowe

Chiukepo Msowoya's first half goal was enough for Nyasa Big Bullets to bag three points after condemning Moyale FC to a1-0 defeat in a highly contested TNM Super League match played at MDC Ground Sunday afternoon.


The win also enabled the People's Team to move up to second place on the log table with 44 points from 21 games, dislodging Silver Strikers, who are scheduled to host Azam Tigers at Silver Stadium on Monday. Currently, Silver have 42 points from 20 games.

Before kickoff, fans believed to be Bullets fans roughed up Moyale's team doctor for allegedly spilling some ‘juju’ on the pitch and the game had to be delayed for over 30 minutes.

Moyale players, who felt insecure following the incident, then swallowed their pride and walked into the field play, a development that excited footballers who turned for the encounter.

Bullets displayed intent and hunger for goals right from the first whistle with Fischer Kondowe, Muhammad Sulumba, Nelson Kangunje and Chiukepo Msowoya tormenting the visitors' defenders,who were the busiest on the day.

The visitors played the good part of the game deep in their own half, an approach that enabled Bullets to have a better possession and created a number of scoring opportunities, but they only managed to convert one for first half to end 1-0 in favor of Bullets.

Both sides made changes in the second half, but lady lucky never smiled at either sides in this half.

Bullets may climb down to third position should Silver Strikers beat Azam Tigers.

Moyale, who beat Blantyre United 4-1 on Saturday, have 34 points from 23 games.

Elsewhere, Dwangwa United claimed a 2-0 home over Red Lions, who also lost 1-0 to Mafco FC at Chitowe Stadium.

Likewise, Mzuni FC claimed a 2-1 over Masters Security at Mzuzu Stadium while Civil Sporting and Azam Tigers settled for a 1-all at Civo Stadium.
