Malawi title race open



The TNM Super League title race is far from decided in Malawi with giants Silver Strikers and Big Bullets 1-1 draw on Sunday leaving unfancied Blantyre United still top on 48 points.

The two giants had, going into last weekend, a chance to close the gap on Blantyre United who beat Blue Eagles 1-0 on Saturday through Brown Mizeye’s strike before losing the following day 3-1 to Kamuzu Barracks in Lilongwe.

But when James Chilapondwa stepped forward to convert a 55th minute controversial penalty that cancelled out Silver’s Dave Moya 46th minute header at the Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre, it meant the title race is still open.

The draw left Silver on 44 points with six games in hand while Bullets lie third on 43 points and they are yet to play five games in the 15-member league.

Elsewhere, Red Lions moved to fourth on 41 points after seeing off Kabwafu United 3-1 in Zomba on Sunday with Boniface Kaulesi among the hosts' scorers.

Kabwafu anchor the table on 14 points from 25 games having lost 3-2 to Azam Tigers on Saturday. On the individual front, Vincent Chinthenga of second from-the-bottom Bvumbwe Research leads on 13 goals from 23 games.
