Former Dynamos and Warriors coach Callisto Pasuwa’s Nyasa Big Bullets opened a 12-point gap at the top of the TNM Super League after beating Ekwendeni Hammers 2-0 at Mzuzu Stadium on Wednesday.
Pasuwa is chasing a fourth straight league title in charge of the Bullets and his eighth in eight seasons. He has already won four consecutive premiership titles in Zimbabwe with Dynamos.
Wednesday’s win took Bullets to 48 points from 18 matches, 12 more than second-placed Blue Eagles who have a game in hand.
Defender, Precious Sambani, scored the opener, heading in from a Patrick Mwaungulu corner-kick in the 21st minute before another defender Nickson Nyasulu the second in the 60th minute leaving the Zimbabwean coach delighted. Said Pasuwa:
Remember, we are building a team. But the boys are performing beyond expectations and we cannot demand more from them.
We scored both goals from corner-kicks, but we can do more to score in open play.
