The TNM Super League champions designate Big Bullets kick-started their campaign at Civo Stadium nine months ago with a 2-1 win over Silver Strikers.
This afternoon they return to the venue to wrap up the season with a vendetta against Civo United who booted them out of the Standard Bank Knockout Cup.
The embarrassing 2-1 defeat not only saw Bullets missing out on yet another Standard Bank Knockout Cup, but also ended the People’s Team two-year clean record at Kamuzu Stadium.
Bullets technical director Billy Tewesa did not mince words on how Civo dented the team’s image.
“Look, we are already champions and we are playing one of the teams that managed to beat us in the 2015 season, what more is there to do than to punish them for what they did to us in Standard Bank Knockout Cup?” Tewesa said.
Apart from Bullets’ revenge mission, there is also an individual battle that striker Chiukepo Msowoya is fighting this afternoon.
The Bullets marksman is hoping to leap frog current top goalscorer Innocent Bokosi in the battle for the golden boot.
Bokosi wrapped up the season with 14 goals after his side lost 1-0 to Mighty Be Forward Wanderers on Thursday.
Chiukepo, who is second to Bokosi with 13 goals, is hoping to score two goals to sucker-punch the Red Lions striker.
But the veteran striker said he is under no pressure to win the golden boot award which he last won in his heyday while at Escom United in 2007 with 17 goals.
“I will accept what comes. If I score, that’s fine. But I will not go onto the pitch with the pressure of scoring a brace,” he said.
