Inside Bullets this week

Share

It’s another week of exciting fixtures for our teams in the TNM Super League and the ThumbsUp Southern Region Football League.

Three matches are lined up at the Kamuzu Stadium this week involving the reserves and the first team.

Let’s look at your Bullets diary this week.

Men’s First Team

Straight from our 1-all draw away to Mafco FC last weekend, we return to Kamuzu Stadium for TNM Super League action against the second-placed Mzuzu City Hammers on Saturday.

It’s a must-win game for the defending champions who have had a slow start to the title defence after recording four draws in six games, winning two and keeping three clean sheets to sit in fifth place in the standings.

A win over in-form Hammers will still put us in touch with the current log leaders Silver Strikers, who will host third-placed Mighty Mukuru Wanderers at the Silver Stadium on Sunday.

We trail the Central Bankers with six points after Matchweek 6 and need to get our season back on track on Saturday.

It will however not be an easy outing for Kalisto Pasuwa’s men, who have nine players on the injury list.

Bullets, who have made Kamuzu Stadium a fortress for visiting teams, will have to be solid defensively and sharp in attack against a side that has scored seven goals and conceded four to maintain the unbeaten run at home and collect maximum points.

Reserves

Enos Chatama’s boys will be eager to bounce back from their disappointing 1-all draw against The Boys away in Chilomoni last weekend.

Back at the artificial turn at the Kamuzu Stadium, our reserves will host Ntaja Rangers this afternoon in their first match of the two fixtures in the ThumbsUp Southern Region Football League this week.

It will be the first-ever meeting between Bullets Reserves and Ntaja Rangers in the second-tier league.

Chatama’s side will face Ntopwa FC at Kamuzu Stadium in their second league game of the week on Saturday. The Premier Division sides will curtain-raise our TNM Super League action against the Hammers.

Women

Our women’s team exited the Goshen FAM Women’s National Championship early after suffering a 4-1 defeat at the hands of the MDF Lioness in the quarterfinals at the Bingu National Stadium on Tuesday.

They will now have to go back to the drawing board and switch focus to their preparations for the 2024 FAM Women’s Football Southern Region Football League.

Under 19s

They are still fine-tuning for the FCB Under 19 Championship, which kicks off next week.

Our developmental side, who retained the African Herbal Mixture Under 19 Cup a fortnight ago, will strive to break the jinx of not winning the upcoming competition, despite qualifying for the knockout stages with a 100 per cent winning record.
