Thrilling encounters continue in the 2016 TNM Super League as the Blantyre-based rivals, Nyasa Big Bullets and Mighty BeFoward wanderers face each other over the weekend.
To be played at Kamuzu Stadium on Saturday 30th April, the game might have come at good time when both teams are struggling to find their feet in the league as both have lost valuable points in the recent weeks.
Bullets and Nomads are both tied at four points with only two games played. On Sunday 24th April the peoples team managed to collect maximum points against Zomba-based soldiers Red Lions while the ‘Nyerere’ camp dropped two points against Dwangwa United.
Bullets are third on the log table with Wanderers on fourth but tied on goal difference.
Football lovers will be interested to witness how Muhammad Sulumba will perform against his former club, the Nomads. It can’t be said if he will receive hostile or warm reception from the Nyerere camp, but certainly he would labour to prove a point.
Sulumba was signed form rivals Mighty BeFoward Wanderers and was featured in Bullets’ first game against Moyale Barracks in which he was culprit for missing a penalty.
The Nomads are on the verge of signing Jaffalie Chande from the peoples team but contractual disagreements between the player and Bullets are delaying the would-be Wanderers’ big catch.
Football Association of Malawi (FAM) Disciplinary Committee is yet to come up with its verdict on the issue this week.
Meanwhile, Bullets have signed midfielder Kondwani Kumwenda who was considered redundant at Mighty Be Forward Wanderers Football Club.
The Nomads offloaded Kumwenda together with other players but supporters did not agree with the technical panel on the part of the attacking midfielder who was obviously the darling of the ‘Nyerere’ fans.
