Just after the goal, Bullets was forced to make two changes bringing in Aimable Niyikiza for Msowoya and Chimwemwe Nkukwawa for Owen Chaima who were injured.
The development had no impact to the People’s team performance as the team continued showing anger for more goals and no wonder Henry Kabich increased the lead through a header from a well taken free-kick in the 41st minute.
In the second half, Red Lions changed the approach, pressing Bullets from left and right. No wonder Red Lions reduced the arrears through Steve Ziba to make it 3-2.
As everyone was thinking that the match will end that Bullets were gifted a penalty by referee Ishmael Chizinga due to the foul committed by Red Lions goalkeeper MacFallen Ngwira.
Chilapondwa converted the spot-kick to cushion Bullets’ lead. Lions’ resistance was finally over and the game ended 4-2 in favour of Bullets FC.
The development means Bullets is now 9 points clear over the second placed Blue Eagles and 12 points clear against their traditional rivals Mighty Be-forward Wanderers.
