Defending champions Big Bullets now stand proudly as the only team yet to taste defeat in the TNM Super League following Blue Eagles’ shock 0-2 defeat at the hands of Airborne Rangers.
The People’s Team lead the 15-team flagship league with 26 points from 12 games—five points ahead of their rivals Mighty Be Forward Wanderers who are on second position, but with a game in hand.
However, technical director Billy Tewesa said while they are excited at their good run so far, they will exercise a lot of caution.
“It creates more pressure for us in that teams will now be coming hard on us, but we will take each game as it comes.
“Hopefully, we can wind up the first-round without a loss and that could give us a lot of confidence going into the second-round,” said Tewesa
According to a press statement released by Super League of Malawi (Sulom), 186 goals have been scored so far and with 22 goals to their credit, Bullets are the highest scoring team.
Mafco boasts of having the meanest defence conceding only six goals while rookies Dedza Young Soccer Stars are currently the most generous having conceded 20 goals.
Mzuni and Civo United remain winless at home while Airborne Rangers, Epac, Dedza Young Soccer and Fisd Wizards are yet to claim victory away. Bullets, Nomads and Red Lions are yet to record a loss away.
Innocent Bokosi of Red Lions is currently leading in the battle for the golden boot after scoring eight goals followed by Green Harawa (Silver Strikers) and Chiukepo Msowoya (Bullets) who have scored seven goals apiece.
Justin Kamanga and Richard Chande both of Epac and Chisomo Mpachika of Dedza Young Soccer have been the unlucky ones to score past their own goalkeepers.
