Silver Strikers hit-back at Big Bullets

Peter Mponda

TNM Super League leaders Silver Strikers have asked defending champions Nyasa Big Bullets to avoid making callous remarks to buy sympathy.

Silver Chief Executive Officer Thoko Chimbali made the remarks in reaction to Bullets Assistant Coach Peter Mponda’s claim that the bankers were responsible for Bullets’ goalless draw with TN Stars at Kasungu Stadium on Sunday.

“We are surprised that our colleagues [Bullets] have made such an allegation after drawing against in Kasungu. As Silver we were not there and they did not play against us. We also do not own the referee’s body; neither do we assign referees to handle games. We find this very unfortunate. We have played a lot of games in the Super League including two away wins in the Southern Region. How did we win there? We also lost twice on the way, including a loss to Civil Service United. What is their justification,” he said.


Mponda, speaking after being held to a goalless draw, accused referees of biased officiating claiming it was a move hatched by the Area 47 side.

“I don’t think TN Stars is happy for earning a draw. Actually, it is Silver who are happy, having successfully accomplished their mission with the referee to frustrate us. But let me not complain here because this is happening whenever we visit the Central Region,” he said, adding that the People’s Team were denied a penalty appeal.

The draw came after Bullets thrashed Stars 6-0 last week during the last games of the first round.


Bullets are now trailing Silver by five points having amassed 33 points from 17 games while Silver have 38 points, from 16 games.

This season, some referees have come under attack for poor and incompetent officiation.
