Fischer Kondoweâ€™s 87th minute penalty rescued Bullets a point and with it the TNM Super League top spot in a come-from-behind 1-1 draw with Blantyre United at Kalulu Stadium in Nchalo, Chikhwawa.
Bullets, whose debutant Dalitso Sailesi looked ordinary against his former side, remain on top with 38 points, two ahead of United.
United started the game with an upper hand, with Bulletsâ€™ three-man defence struggling and the midfield unable to find its range on the bumpy Kalulu Stadium pitch, but neither side had clear-cut chances until after break.
Sparrow Msowoya put United ahead soon after break and they appeared to be heading for the first position only to be undone by a handball in the danger zone for Kondowe to step forward and send the ball past United goalkeeper Carlington Misomali.
Bullets coach Eddingtone Ngâ€™onamo admitted that his side was outplayed.
â€œI am happy with the result which keeps us on top. We certainly missed Chimango Kayira and James Chilapondwa. We struggled, especially in the first-half,â€ said Ngâ€™onamo.
On his part, Blantyre United official, Lawson Nakoma said his charges have themselves to blame for not killing the game.
