Bullets edge Blue Eagles to move to position five

Two goals from Samson Chonde and Brown Mizeyi were enough to hand Bullets a 2-0 victory over Blue Eagles in TNM Super League on Sunday at Nankhaka.
Chonde opened the scores sheet in 15th minute and Mizeyi doubled the lead just nine minutes into the second half.
The goals were both players’ first since they joined Bullets and a relief for under fire coach Eddington Ng’onamo.
The win means Bullets are back from the Central Region with four points from a possible six.
On Saturday the People’s Team was held by unlikely side Mponela United who are anchoring the log table.
But on Sunday they put behind their Carlsberg Cup exit after a 1-0 loss to Kamuzu Barracks on Wednesday and the draw to put up a gallant fight and overcome the police side at their own backyard.
After the game coach Ng’onamo applauded his charges for the win.
“After Saturday game we told the boys that we need to win this one. At least four points from two away games is okay,” he said.
“I know supporters want us to win games all the time. But away games are a bot tough. Its not easy to win all the games more especially after playing another game on Wednesday.”
The coach also said playing on three games in four days had affected the team’s performance.
“I decided to make some changes to the squad in today’s game because I didn’t want one player to play three games. But I am happy that at least we are going back with four points,” he said.
Blue Eagles coach De Clerck Msakakuona blamed the loss on poor defending.
“Bullets didn’t play their usual game. They just managed to score the goals due to our poor defending,” he said.
“We didn’t play well. We never created chances. We didn’t go forward to trouble the Bullets defence.”
Following the win Bullets have moved one place to positions five with 23 points from 13 games.
Red Lions still lead the table with 24 points from 12 games.
