Big Bullets kissed the year 2011 goodbye with a one-one draw against Blue Eagles in a thrilling TNM Super League that shredded the nerves of fans at Nankhaka ground in Lilongwe on Friday.
However, the Bullets who now have 33 points from 25 games, tore into the match officials, accusing them of failing to take a firm line after what would have been their winning goal from Robson Banda was disallowed for offside.
The PeopleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Team coach Eddie NgÃ¢â‚¬â„¢onamo claimed that capital city-based match officials have not been fair with his team for the better part of the season.
“It was the same thing against [Mighty] Wanderers. We were denied a clear goal and this afternoon the match officials were at it again. The goal was not scored from an offside position,” said NgÃ¢â‚¬â„¢onamo.
Midfield workhorse Phillip Masiye put the cops ahead in the second-half before Godfrey MasondoÃ¢â‚¬â€a former Eagles playerÃ¢â‚¬â€cancelled the lead following a move that involved Fischer Ã¢â‚¬ËœAnongÃ¢â‚¬â„¢aÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ Kondowe and Douglas Chirambo.
Fischer took capital city fans down the memory lane with a vintage display on the flanks and they could not help but chant his name after the match.
As we went to press, Eagles who also had 33 points, were taking on Epac FC.
This afternoon, Red Lions host Azam Tigers at the Zomba Community Centre ground.
