Nyasa Big Bullets took no chances in their quest to consolidate their lead in the TNM Super League by thrashing Blue Eagles 4-0 at Kamuzu Stadium on Sunday.
With all the hype and threats from the Eagles due to their top-form, they return to their base, Lilongwe empty handed having started the journey on a poor note after going down 3-1 to Ntopwa at the same venue on Saturday.
Hassan Kajoke scored a brace while Righteous Banda and Mike Mkwate shared one apiece to ensure their team reach 55 points.
The result also means the Eagles have been displaced from the third-place following Silver Strikers' 1-0 victory over Kamuzu Barracks.
Mike Tetteh scored the lone-goal at Civo Stadium.
The Bankers now have 50 points, three above the cops after playing 28 games each.
Only points changed between Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers as the gap remained at one following the Nomads' 2-0 win in an away encounter against Dwangwa United at Chitowe Stadium.
Harry Nyirenda and Vincent Nyangulu gave the Nomads the much-needed points to mantain the gap with Bullets having played 25 games each.
Fourteenth-placed Mlatho Mponela managed a single-point from the possible six after losing 2-0 to Chitipa United at Karonga Stadium.
Mlatho held Karonga United 2-2 at the same venue on Saturday.
On Sunday, Irvin Mwakapenda and Khumbo Ng'ambi did the damage to Mlatho.
In Kasungu, Moyale came from behind to hold TN Stars in a one-all clash at Kasungu Stadium.
