All our teams except the women’s side continue to be active in their respective competitions and it promises to be another busy weekend ahead.
The main squad, the reserves and the youth side will all be involved, whilst the women’s team remains inactive as they await the FAM Women’s Football Southern Region League kick-off later this month.
Here is a breakdown of what awaits Bullets this week, including the TNM Super League tie against Dedza Dynamos at home.
Straight from the comfortable 3-0 victory over Blue Eagles in the TNM Super League on Sunday, Kalisto Pasuwa and his men will switch focus to Saturday’s league game against Dedza Dynamos at Kamuzu Stadium.
Bullets will look to continue where they stopped at the weekend to stretch the lead at the top of the summit over fellow title contenders, Silver Strikers and Mighty Mukuru Wanderers, who are currently not active after they contributed four players each to the Malawi national team for the COSAFA Cup underway in South Africa.
The People’s Team hasn’t lost any game at their base since September 2021 and they will be hoping to capitalize on Silver Strikers and Mighty Mukuru Wanderers’ inactivity due to the ongoing tournament in Durban.
Our team B will be in action at home against Ntaja United in the ThumbsUp Southern Region Football League on Sunday.
Enos Chatama’s boys missed the opportunity to win Group B with a game left after they drew 0-0 with Mangochi United last Sunday. The result means the defending champions have 19 points, a point behind leaders FOMO FC and level on points with Sunday’s opposition.
This was Bullets Reserves’ third draw for a new-look team that lost several key players to Super League teams at the start of the current campaign.
Autry Kalulu’s youngsters were meant to host Yizo Yizo Warriors last week but the game was shifted to this week due to several players in the FCB Under-19 Cup sitting the Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) examination.
The game will now take place on Saturday at a venue yet to be revealed by the Youth Football Committee.
Young Bullets are currently topping Group A with 10 points following their 2-0 victory over Soche Madrid a fortnight ago.
They are facing a side that is seventh in the standings with just a point, having lost 3-1 to CC Stars in the same week.
Maggie Chombo’s ladies are still fine-tuning for the new season and they are currently busy handing trials to new players to beef up the squad ahead of the new season.
Facing Dedza Dynamos will not be an easy task for the injury-stricken main team, but they are expected to push for all three points in a season where the competition for the top position looks stiff.
Pasuwa’s charges will be hoping to show the same character they showed against Blue Eagles in a match where they struggled in the first half but eventually improved in the final half to score extra two goals and collect all the points on Sunday afternoon.
The same is also expected of our reserves team when they host Ntaja United, a side that is now slowly becoming a force to be reckoned with in the Premier Division.
Despite playing to a goalless draw away to Mangochi United, we expect Chatama’s side to bounce back and collect all the points.
As for the youth team, the youngsters will also be looking to maintain their perfect start to the Under-19 championship campaign.
