Big Bullets FC on Saturday thrashed their long arch-rivals Mighty Be forward Wanderers 2-1 in 2015 TNM Super League to maintain the unbeaten record.
The development means Bullets has opened a five point gap and sit comfortably at the summit of the log with 26 points.
79 games of the 2015 TNM Super League are now history of which 57 have either been victories or losses and 22 have ended in draws. Five matches have witnessed no goals being scored.
186 goals have been scored so far. With 22 goals to their credit Big Bullets are the highest scoring team. Mafco F.C boosts having the meanest defensive setup after letting in only 6 goals. Rookies Dedza Young Soccer is most generous defensively having allowed their goal minders to collect the ball 20 times behind their goal line.
Giants Civo United have managed to collect their first full points after edging their city rivals Silver Strikers 0-2 at their own backyard. Dedza Young Soccer also managed to collect their first point away from home after holding Red Lions 1-1 in Balaka. Blue Eagles lost their invincibility courtesy of their 2-0 loss away to Airborne Rangers in Chitowe.
Mzuni F.C and Civo United remain winless at home while Airborne Rangers, Epac F.C, Dedza Young Soccer and Surestream F.C (now FISD Wizards) are yet to claim victory away. Bullets, Nomads and Red Lions are yet to record a loss away.
Innocent Bokosi of Red Lions is currently leading in the battle for the golden boot after scoring 8 goals. Green Harawa of Silver Strikers is the second player to claim a hat trick after John Malidadi Jnr of Blue Eagles.
Justin Kamanga and Richard Chande both of Epac F.C plus Chisomo Mpachika of Dedza Young Soccer have been the unlucky ones to score past their own goal keepers.
