SWEET REVENGE: Bullets Boot Out Silver In Carlsberg Cup

Bullets FC have booted out Silver Strikers from the Carlsberg Cup with a slender 1-0 lead at Kamuzu Stadium thanks to a Dalitso Sailesi 26th minute goal.
Sailesi coolly slotted in the lone goal of the game after some brilliant passes with striker Gabadinho Mhango.
The win is sweet revenge for Bullets who were also booted out by the bankers in Presidential Cup some two months ago.
But Silver started strongly in the game forcing Bullets to play in their own half inside the first 15 minutes of the game.
The bankers lost steam after their playmaker Green Harawa was rushed to Queen Elizabeth Central Hospital following a hard tackle from defender Sankhani Mkandawire that left him unconscious.
Just five minutes after losing Harawa, who was replaced by Asedi Ayami, Bullets took the lead through Sailesi brilliant goal as the youngster beat defender Bernard Namangwiyo before putting the ball beyond Flames goalkeeper Charles Swini.
After the match Silver coach Stain Chirwa said it was a flat game with very few chances.
“We didn’t create chances. Even our opponents didn’t create chances as well. They only got one chance and scored,” he said.
For Bullets coach Eddington Ng’onamo it was a relief after he faced pressure from supporters following the team’s 1-0 loss to Epac in Super League last week.
Bullets now face Kamuzu Barracks in quarterfinals. The soldiers beat Blue Eagles 4-1 at Dedza Stadium with a hat trick from Harvey Nkacha while the other goal came from Kelvin Malikebi.
