Bullets affair in FDH Cup final


Nyasa Big Bullets have humiliated sworn-nemesis Mighty Mukuru Wanderers 4-0 in a one-sided FDH Cup semifinal match derby staged away at the Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe.

Wanderers dominated the early exchanges with Yamikani Chester’s dribbles at the heart of the attack.

But they fell short of seriously threatening the Bullets goal.

In the 20th minute, Bullets utilised Wanderers’ weak left wing when defender Gomezgani Chirwa finished off a cross from young Anthony Mfune.

In the second half, Bullets took full control. Two minutes in, Mfune turned on the heat in a counter attack move, he passed the ball to Hassan Kajoke who was tripped by Miracle Gabeya in the penalty box.

Kajoke made no mistake and made it 2-0.

Ten minutes later, Chirwa pounced Gabeya’s misplaced back pass to goal keeper Richard Chipuwa, unselfishly passed the ball to Mfune who converted Bullets’ third in front of an empty goal.

Wanderers made some wholesale changes brought in four players at a go including Vitumbiko Kumwenda, Chiukepo Msowoya and Wisdom Mpinganjira, but that did not help much.

The nomads appeared deflated, three goals was a hard hill to climb, made no clear shots on goal.

With a few few minutes to goal, bullets replaced Mfune with Babatunde Adepoju who ensured he too was part of the rout as he scored in injured time.

When the final whistle was blown it was Bullets who has booked a final berth to play their reserve side in the final match of the FDH Cup.

As Wanderers fans walked out, Bullets supporters, stayed in the stadium to suck it all in. They were then entertained by their latest signing Eli Njuchi.
