TNM Super League title contenders Big Bullets on Saturday survived lower league side FC Surestream’s scare when they came from two goals down to force a draw in Balaka.
Surestream, who currently top the Southern Region Football League (SRFL) Premier Division, were a marvel to watch as they displayed their traditional pass-and-move game which thrilled the big turnout. The People’s Team was reduced to an ordinary outfit.
Peter Msowoya drew first blood in the second minute and barely two minutes later, Blessings Phiri hit the second goal.
However, sensing danger, Bullets started gaining momentum and to some extent, resorted to a physical game.
Cliff Kafa reduced the arrears just before half-time while Victor Limbani scored the equaliser.
Bullets coach Elia Kananji admitted that his side played second fiddle to Surestream.
“They [Surestream] have a very good side. They are organised in all departments. We were made to sweat for the draw and that we held them was mainly because of our experience,” said Kananji.
