Nyasa Big Bullets held a crisis meeting on Tuesday in a bid to address the team’s poor showing in recent matches.

Bullets have gone three consecutive matches without a win in all competitions.

They were booted out of the Caf Champions League after losing 3–1 to South Africa’s Amazulu of South Africa before drawing 1–1 with Mafco in a TNM Super League match.

A 1-0 loss to bitter rivals Mighty Wanderers in the Blantyre derby on Sunday saw their fortunes turn from bad to worse.

Following the poor run of form, Bullets management summoned the Kalisto Pasuwa-led technical panel to a meeting aimed at finding solutions.

Bullets Chief Executive Officer Suzgo Nyirenda, while confirming meeting the technical panel, said there was no crisis.

“We normally and regularly meet our technical panel to share ideas and we purely discuss technical issues regarding the performance of the team. There was nothing like a crisis meeting,” Nyirenda said.

He said it was a normal technical meeting aimed at reviewing the team’s performance.

“We were also planning what to do in the last two must-win matches. Just like in any professional club set up, this is normal. Our technical panel has key performance indicators which will be reviewed after the season is completed,” Nyirenda said.

Bullets last victory was a 2–0 beating of Chitipa United on August 29 at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre.

The People’s Team has never registered any victory since.

The Super League defending champions go into weekend with a tricky fixture against unpredictable Kamuzu Barracks at Civo Stadium in Lilongwe tomorrow.

The soldiers are fighting for an Airtel Top 8 slot and are likely to come out fighting.

Bullets will host Karonga United at Kamuzu Stadium in their last match of the season.

Former Malawi National Football Team midfielder Sherry Msuku said the pressure is on Bullets.

“When you are on top with just one point, you are always under pressure. If they drop points in the remaining matches, they will give an advantage to fellow contenders,” Msuku said.

Bullets have a slender advantage in the title race as they are at the summit of the table with 56 points from 28 matches whereas Silver Strikers are second with 55 points from the same number of games.
