TNM Super League defending champions Nyasa Big Bullets have expressed their delight after being exempted from games this weekend.
Bullets recently complained that their players were tired following long trips to the Central Region and Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, for Super League and continental league assignments.
Bullets assistant Coach, Peter Mponda, said the break would give the team’s players time to take a breather.
“Some of our players have been combining club and national duties; so, yes, it will give our players a chance to regain energy,” Mponda said.
He said the technical team took advantage of Bingu Ikhome Bonanza, which took place at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe over the weekend, to assess players who have recovered from injuries.
Super League of Malawi General Secretary, Williams Banda, said Bullets were exempted in line with the original fixture.
“We released a full second round fixture and, if you go back to it, you would observe that Bullets had no games this week,” Banda said.
Bullets are second on the log table with 32 points from 16 matches. Be Forward Wanderers lead the standings with 36 points from 16 games.
