Bullets go top of the log
Big Bullets finally seized control of the TNM Super League driving seat after brushing aside tail-enders Bvumbwe Research 2-0 in the old capital, Zomba on Saturday.
James Chilapondwa stepped forward to convert a penalty before sensational Gabadinho Mhango ended his month-long goal’ drought with the second killer goal.
Now leading the 15-member log table on 37 points, the Bullets finished the match with 10-men following Chilapondwa’s red carding.

A superior goal aggregate separates Blantyre United from the deposed leaders, the Lions now placed third, one point in front of holders, Silver Strikers.
In Lilongwe, Civo United lost 3-2 to Kamuzu Barracks, their first defeat since the sacking of coach Alex Masanjala. Bvumbwe remain bottom on 15 points.
