Inside Bullets this week

Share

There is plenty of action for FCB Nyasa Big Bullets, with the main team, the reserves, and the women’s side all getting involved.

With the TNM Super League championship race done and dusted, Kalisto Pasuwa’s charges now have their focus on the Castel Challenge Cup and the Airtel Top 8.

Bullets, eyeing a quadruple this season, are in the quarter-finals of the Castel Cup and the final of the Airtel Top 8.

Our reserves, who bowed out of the Champion Cup following a 5-4 loss on post-match penalties to Baka City on Sunday, will switch their attention to the Nyasa Capital Finance Cup.

Maggie Chombo’s ladies, who have surrendered the FAM Women’s Football Southern Region League championship to Ntopwa FC with a game to play, will host the champions-elect in their last match of the campaign.

Keep reading to find out how the schedule at The People’s Team looks this week.

First Team

Fresh from their convincing 3-0 win over Civil Service United in the Castel Challenge Cup round of 16 tie at home on Saturday, Pasuwa’s charges will host Ekwendeni Hammers in the quarter-finals at Kamuzu Stadium on Wednesday.

It will be the first-ever cup meeting between the two teams, but this will be the seventh meeting after we played them six times in the league, in which we won five times and drawn once.

Ekwendeni has never beaten Bullets at Kamuzu Stadium and the hosts will seek to maintain that run to keep their quadruple dreams alive, having already won the FDH Bank Cup and the TNM Super League.

The match will produce a semifinalist to face Mighty Mukuru Wanderers, who defeated Moyale Barracks 3-0 at Kamuzu Stadium on Sunday.

Reserves 

Enos Chatama’s men registered their first-ever defeat in the Central Region when they were beaten by Baka City 5-4 on post-match penalties in the Champions Cup quarterfinal match at Champions Stadium on Sunday.

Young Bullets, who broke the deadlock early in the final period through Chrispin Mapemba, surrendered their lead towards the end of the match when the newly promoted TNM Super League side from the Northern Region won a spot kick for the tie to be decided through penalties.

They will now focus on Zingwangwa United in the last eight of the Nyasa Capital Finance Cup. The match is likely to be played on Thursday at Kamuzu Stadium.

Chatama’s boys will try to avoid a repeat of what happened in the same competition against the same opposition when they lost 1-0 at Mpira Stadium, but they were given a second chance as the best losers.

Women

Our women’s side has lost the championship to Ntopwa FC, who have 39 points from 13 games, but the least they can do is to reduce the five-point gap to just two when they host their rivals in the final match of their campaign.

Our ladies, who lost to Ntopwa FC 3-2 in the first round, have 34 points from the same number of games, but the gap can be cut short if they manage a win against Isaac Jomo Osman’s side.

Chombo’s will be going into their next fixture after hammering Bvumbwe Women 17-0 at Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday and will be hoping to maintain their spirited performance against the champions-elect.

Afterwards, the two teams will qualify for the FAM Women’s Football National Championship slated for 2024.

Youth

Our developmental side is currently inactive after completing their FCB Under-19 campaign.
