Action in the TNM Super League returns after a two-week break, but Nyasa Big Bullets will still not play due to the Malawi national football team engagement at the ongoing COSAFA Cup in South Africa.
Bullets contributed the highest number of players – eight – for national duty at the tournament taking place in Durban.
The Malawi national team was knocked out in the quarter-finals but the Flames are still in SA to battle for the COSAFA Plate, they play Comoros Island in semi-final two Wednesday evening and will face either Uganda or South Africa, who play in the first semi-final two hours earlier.
The Super League of Malawi (Sulom) also suspended all league games due to the country’s 21 May tripartite elections and extended the postponement last weekend because of post-election tension.
On Monday, Sulom released fixtures for Week 7 and Bullets, not kicking a ball this weekend, are expected to return to action next week after the return of the national team from the COSAFA tourney, which ends this weekend.
The People’s Team is currently second on the log table with 10 points from four games, a point below top-placed Blue Eagles who have played six games.
