IN THE LEAD—Msowoya during Sunday’s game

TNM Super League leaders Nyasa Big Bullets have confessed that they need to work on their striking force if their title aspirations are to be realised.

Bullets have a superior goal difference of 34 and need to win three games and draw one from their last seven matches to claim the league title.

The People’s Team forward, Chiukepo Msowoya, who recently expressed the desire to score 20 goals this season, has taken his tally to 13, after scoring the second goal when Bullets defeated Dwangwa United 2-0 on Sunday at Kamuzu Stadium.

The result helped Bullets to open a four-point gap at the summit of the table with 55 points from 23 games.

If Bullets win their remaining seven games, they will finish the season with 76 points to lift the league title.

But the team can also claim the championship just by winning three games and drawing once.

Defending champions Be Forward Wanderers are third with 45 points from 22 games. If Wanderers win their remaining eight matches, they will finish with 69 points.

Silver Strikers’ chances to lift the title are fading following their barren draw against Moyale Barracks at Silver Stadium on Sunday.

The Bankers have 51 points from 26 games and if they win all their four remaining matches, they will wrap-up the campaign with 63 points.

A member of Bullets’ technical panel, Heston Munthali, said the team should polish up on scoring.

Munthali made the observation after Bullets failed to convert numerous chances against Dwangwa.

“The most important thing is to score goals and win the match. But we need to improve on our conversion rate. As coaches, it is our duty to help strikers to be effective in front of goal,” he said.

Dwangwa assistant Coach Ladwell Mbetewa, said they would not relent on their bid to dodge the chop.

“We are still not safe but we will continue working hard to escape relegation,” Mbetewa said.

In other matches, Blue Eagles and Kamuzu Barracks played out a goalless draw at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe on Saturday.

But it was a dark weekend for Nchalo United, who become the first team to be relegated from the TNM Super League after losing 3-1 to Dwangwa United at Kalulu Stadium.
