Big Bullets attribute dip in form to injuries


By Mabvuto Kambuwe:

Nyasa Big Bullets have attributed their dip in form to injuries.

Bullets Chief Administrator, Albert Chigoga, said the team has struggled in recent games due to injuries of Captain John Lanjesi, Miracle Gabeya, Precious Sambani, Righteous Banda, Dalitso Sailesi and Mac Fallen Mgwira.


“We have several factors affecting the team but the injuries have played a big part in the team’s loss of form. Most of the players on the injury list are first-choice, so the technical panel is bringing in some players,” Chigoga said.

“On top of that, the coach is bringing in a new philosophy to the team; so, the fans should have patience. We hope that, very soon, the team would find its right balance and get positive results.”

Lanjesi has been ruled out for eight weeks and would miss the Blantyre derby against Be Forward Wanderers at the end of the month.


Striker Hassan Kajoke has also joined the injury list as he was stretchered off the field during a TNM Super League match with Kamuzu Barracks (KB) on Saturday.

Before the start of the season, Bullets bolstered the squad with reserve side players namely Kajoke, Chimwemwe Idana and Charles Petro.

Bullets also signed Sambani from Wanderers, Peter Banda (Griffin Saenda Young Stars), Ben Manyozo (Dwangwa United) and Luke Chima (Mighty Tigers).

With 11 matches played, Bullets have lost to Blue Eagles (2-1) and Kamuzu Barracks (1-0), posted four draws and five wins in the league.

Bullets trail leaders KB by seven points after playing the same number of games but are six points behind Wanderers who have played 10 games.

Bullets are on fifth place on the log table with 19 points from 11 games whereas KB have 26 points from the same number of games.

In their remaining first round fixtures, Bullets face Wanderers, Silver Strikers, Karonga United and Dwangwa.

Meanwhile, Bullets want to hire Zimbabwean fitness trainer Mahaja Ndlovu, who has been in the country for over three weeks.

Chigoga said the Zimbabwean was working with Bullets on a temporary basis after recommendations from the technical panel which compatriot Calisto Pasuwa heads.
