Litmus test for Big Bullets, Nomads

They made headlines with many high-profile signings, beefed up their coaching panels with experienced mentors and all seemed set for a perfect season.

But Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers have made a rather slow start to the 2016 Super League season, playing second fiddle to high-flying Blue Eagles, who have taken the league by storm, sitting pretty at the top.

This weekend, both sides know they have to start bagging maximum points if they are to avoid succumbing to the pressure of their success-hungry and overzealous fans.

After a 3-0 win over MDF Marine in the Presidential Cup, Bullets host Epac FC at Kamuzu Stadium this afternoon, whereas Wanderers welcome Mafco at the same venue tomorrow.

Epac were hammered 5-2 by Bullets in their last visit last season, but the People’s Team Technical Director, Billy Tewesa, insists his charges are not in complacent mood.

“We need to start winning games. We understand that the fans expect a lot from us but we will are working hard to make sure that our title defence is successful,” Tewesa said.

Bullets would look up to captain Chiukepo Msowoya, slippery Dalitso Sailesi, McFarlen Ngwira, Muhammad Sulumba and Mike Mkwate to bang in the goals.

However, Miracle Gabeya, John Lanjesi and the rest of the defence has to be wary of Epac’s marksman Fletcher Bandawe who has made a good start after moving from Dedza Young Soccer.

Overall Eagles are the only team with a perfect record in the league with 15 points from five matches, and they have scored the most goals—(12) while conceding four.

Mzuni and Moyale come second and third with nine and seven points respectively, Bullets and Wanderers are fifth with six points from four matches having each won once.
