Nyasa Big Bullets have managed to reach 70 points in the TNM Super League following their 4-1 thrashing of Karonga United at Kamuzu Stadium in the mid-week match.

Kalisto Pasuwa's men saw Hassan Kajoke score a brace with substitutes Stanely Billiat and Righteous Banda getting a goal each.

The People’s team still have a game to play and are set to put up another record season.

The Nyasa Big Bullets head coach reviewing the team’s performance said: "It was a game maybe in the first 10, 15 minutes we were jittery in keeping possession and then they (Karonga) settled in the coming 25, 30 minutes.

”You see it’s complacency in these boys, they were thinking maybe it is going to be easy to take three points but these guys (the visitors) were more organised.

“You could see ten of them going behind the ball allowing us to play our passing game in front of them and the moment we got into their areas they were pressing us.

"But once again the guys came well in the next minutes after being scored, they equalized and we started to be thinking defensive-wise. And I think with that kind of attitude we will go far.”

Speaking on Adepoju Babatunde being kept at bay, Pasuwa's said: "Very quiet of Baba today and that is the pressure that I have been talking about. Maybe he is giving himself too much pressure [chasing the Golden Boot], but we will sit down and talk to him and try to help him as a coach.”

Bullets will face Karonga again in the Airtel Top 8 and Pasuwa said they must wok on their game.

“They were playing; 4-4-2 most of the times having wide players where they would be bringing the balls into the box, that is one area where we need to work on especially on our defensive part of it.

"That’s the type of play they will play and with those bumpy pitches, they are very good on them and you could see even the second balls they can attack. We need to improve on that for us to do good when we go for the [quarter-final] return match.”

The head coach said they are not going to be complacent despite winning Charity Shield, FDH Cup saying what they need is to approach the games in Airtel Top 8 positively.
