Bullets took a head-start in the game after with goals from Dalitso Sailesi scored in the 6th minute making the best of a defensive blunder.

Mussa Manyenje cushioned Bullets lead to 2 in the 53rd minute by profiting from another defensive gaffe when McFaren Ngwira’s cross caused panic in the heart of Silver defence.

Manyenje seized the opportunity to lob the ball over goalkeeper Blessings who was drawn offguard and failed to come in time to challenge for the striker for the goal.

It was one of the most entertaining and competitive football match played before an impressive crowd befitting a match of one of the country’s popular clubs.


Bullets started the defence of their title with a 2-1 victory of Silver in the first round at Civo Stadium.


The game marked the official launch of the second round where the sponsor TNM marked it with activities.

Bullets team manager Rahim Ishmail was however cautious despite his team opening a 10-point gap on top of the table with Mafco coming second.

“Our target is to get to 60 points so that we should be guaranteed of the title,” Ishmail said.

He attributed Bullets’ good run to defend the title to team work.

Silver Strikers coach Lovemore Fazili said his charges gave away the game from defensive blunders.

But the club legend did not rule out his team going for the title.

“Our target is to win all the remaining matches to have a shot at the title,” Fazili said.

Super League rookies FISD Wizzards added salt to Silver’s injury after holding the team to a two-all draw.

The draw comes barely a week after registering only their second league win of the season with a 2-0 triumph over Airborne Rangers.


Mzuni also beat Moyale 2-1 and Airborne beat Dedza Young Soccer 2-1.
