Bullets win BT derby



Big Bullets taught their rivals Mighty Wanderers a 3-0 lesson to claim Blantyre derby bragging rights in front of Kamuzu Stadium good crowd which included Moroka Swallows’Patrick Mabedi on Sunday afternoon.

In registering the Bullets’ first league win over Wanderers since 2010, sensational Gabadinho Mhango struck a late double on the 78 and 88th minute after Chimango Kaira had given them a 34th minute lead.

Diverson Mlozi's cross was punched by Wanderers’ goalkeeper Richard Chipuwa only for the ball to find in the box Kaira who netted to spark wild celebrations. Bullets climbed to third on 42 points.

Then Mhango, who had before the game never scored against Wanderers on all fronts, added the second with a grounder from the blind side following flicked headers by Heston Munthali to Mlozi who provided the assist.

A terrible defensive lapse in Wanderers’defence saw Bullets' substitute Godfrey Masonda scorching Chipuwa palms. The ‘keeper fumbled the ball for Mhango to claim his second and seventh of the season.
