Left-back Precious Sambani’s first-half strike took Nyasa Big Bullets to the TNM Super League summit following a 1-0 win over struggling Mafco FC at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre on Sunday.
Bullets moved to the summit of the 16-member log table on 13 points from five games with a superior goal aggregate separating them from Blue Eagles.
