Over to you Bullets, Eagles

TNM Super League

The chase for maximum points to enable one occupy first the seat on the TNM Super League bus continues this weekend as leaders Blue Eagles and Nyasa Big Bullets have been handed crucial assignments.

While Eagles will be hosted by Dedza Dynamos at Balaka Stadium on Sunday, second-placed Bullets have a chance to temporarily take over the mantle.

Bullets, two points below Eagles, play struggling Red Lions at the same venue on Saturday.

A win will automatically take the People's team up, creating a point difference, but their stay could be temporal if the in-form Malawi Police side defeat struggling Dynamos the next day.

Coming from their respective wins against Civo and Rumphi United, Bullets should anticipate a tough encounter against the Zomba-based side as they seem to have rediscovered their form barely a week after sacking coach Mike Kumanga for Nelson Chirwa.

At all cost, Bullets needs to win the match if they are to maintain their league defence hopes, while praying for Eagles to drop points.

Dropping points at this stage will be gifting Eagles a chance as they do not have to sweat for Sunday's match.

According to Lions' coach, Chirwa, Bullets should not expect an easy ride.

"Bullets are aiming to go top of the league, while we are aiming at improving our standards of play. We don't fear Bullets, we have a good squad only if we hold our heads high and be determined for the win. Our focus is now to finish the first round in the top eight and this can only be achieved if we win such home games,"he said.

After a 2-0 defeat away to Rumphi, Sable Farming return home at Mpira Village to host Moyale Barracks.

On Sunday, Rumphi will play TN Stars at Rumphi Stadium, while Silver Strikers expects more misery against third-placed Kamuzu Barracks at Silver Stadium.

Tigers FC will be at home facing Mafco.
