TNM Super League defending champions Nyasa Big Bullets earned a hard fought 2-1 victory over Mighty Tigers at Kamuzu Stadium Sunday to move level on points with leaders Silver Strikers.

Bullets remain second on the log table with 39 points from 19 matches at par with leaders Silver, who have a game in hand.

However, the match involving Silver and Red Lions on Saturday ended prematurely as the scores were 0-0 and the results might be decided through a boardroom decision.

Hassan Kajoke gave Bullets an early lead from the penalty spot before Chimwemwe Idana added the second goal in the second half.

Tigers set up a tense finish after Precious Chipungu scored from the penalty spot in the dying minutes.

Despite the win, Bullets Coach Kalisto Pasuwa admitted that his troops were not at their best.

“We were second on the ball but the fact that we collected maximum points, means we are geared to fight for championship. We are having problems where most of the players have no confidence in keeping possession,” he said.

For Tigers, it was another bad day at the office after they suffered the 10th loss of the season.

But Tigers Coach Trevor Kajawa was optimistic of surviving relegation.

“We conceded easy goals. But it was an improved performance from my players. We have 12 matches to fight for our survival and we will win the battle,” Kajawa said.

Tigers anchor the log table with 14 points from 18 matches, four points from the safety zone.

Elsewhere, Karonga United returned to their base with four points following a goal-less draw with Mafco at Chitowe Ground, just a day after beating Civil Service United 1-0 at Civo Stadium.

Karonga remain fourth on the log table with 31 points from 19 matches, below third-placed Mighty Wanderers on goal difference whereas Mafco are seventh with 26 points from 18 matches.

At Chiwembe Stadium, Ntopwa United lost 2-1 to TN Stars. Alfred Chizinga netted a brace before Kondwani Saizi scored a consolation goal for the hosts.

Ntopwa remain winless under coach Karen Chaula whereas Stars recovered after a 1-0 loss to Mighty Wanderers on Saturday.

For Stars, they are on position nine with 26 points whereas Ntopwa are stuck in the relegation zone with 15 points from 19 matches.

The match between Mzuzu Warriors and Chitipa United ended 1-1 at Mzuzu Stadium. Suzgo Mwakasinga scored for Warriors but Alex Benson equalised for Chitipa.
