Bullets made four changes to the team that defeated the visitors who made more than six changes to the squad that lost on Saturday.

The home side created the first goal scoring chance on the day in the 6th minute through Dalitso Sailesi who shot wide from a close range. At the other end, Enerst Kakhobwe was on holiday as he was hardly troubled by the visitors’ striking force.

Bullets had more than four corners within the opening 15 minutes of the half but could not utilize as Dynamos defense stood firm to frustrate the home fans. The visitors had their first shot at goal on 21st through Kennedy Ulaji who shot straight at Kakhobwe.

Sailesi was at it again, this time being denied by Reynes Ashley in goals for the visitors who made a stunning save to deny the home team from taking a lead. Bullets pressed in the latter stages, with Muhamad Sulumba’s thumping header hitting the upright.

Come second half, Diverson Mlozi, Dave Ng’ambi and Miracle Gabeya all came in for Chiku Kanyenda, Fischer Kondowe and George Nyirenda but Bullets could not find the back of the net.

Kakhobwe had to come in few minutes into the half to deny Godknows Murwira from finding the back of the net.

Chances were few as the midfield battle intensified, with both teams opting to play in the middle of the park.

The home team had a chance in the half from a free kick from which Sailesi was again denied by the shot-stopper and after 90 minutes of play, it ended goalless.

Bullets mentor Franco Ndawa was happy with his side’s performance while his opposite number Paulo Silva was not happy to leave Malawi without scoring a single goal.
