The visitors bagged three points, thanks to forward Chiukepo Msowoya’s second half goal. Chiukepo connected home from a well curved Fischer Kondowe’s free kick.

The People’s Team now have 41 points from 17 games and will complete their away assignment against Moyale FC at the same venue on Sunday.



Bullets coach Rodgers Yasin praised his charges for the gallant fight, observing that Mzuni is “hard nut to crack”, especially when facing them at their back yard.
The two sides shared the spoils in the first round after settling for a barren draw.

 

“It feels to get three points at Mzuzu Stadium where the environment is always hostile. I am also happy with the boys for reorganizing themselves when defender Sankhani Mkandawire was shown the red card and we eventually got the goal when the draw looked imminent,” said Yasin.



Mzuni coach Gilbert Chirwa observed that they were a better side, but poor finishing cost them the game. Mzuni are third from the bottom with 15 points from 17 games.



At Kamuzu, Mighty Be Forward Wanderers, widely known the Nomads, escaped with a 1-0 home win over Tigers FC and have since moved to second position with 34 points from 17 games.

 

Silver have moved to third position, but have a chance to reclaim the second slot if they can manage to beat Blue Eagles at Nankhaka on Sunday. They have 32 points from 16 games.

 

Midfielder Yamikani Chester’s first half goal was enough for the Nomads to bag three points. Chester’s solo effort saw him dribbling past a forest of defenders before beating Tigers goalkeeper Christopher Mikuwa with a cool finish.

 

Elsewhere, Karonga United whipped Nchalo United 3-0 at Karonga Stadium. They are on tenth position with 20 points from 18 games while Nchalo at the bottom with 10 points from 17 games.
