TNM Super League action continues Tuesday afternoon as Blantyre giants, Nyasa Big Bullets and Be Forward Wanderers, take on Nchalo United and Azam Tigers, respectively.

Bullets, Wanderers and Tigers have seven points each from three games and stand a chance to dislodge early pacesetters, Red Lions, who have eight points from four games.

Over the weekend, Bullets and Wanderers shared spoils (0-0) in a Blantyre derby played at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe, to leave them on third and fourth places, respectively.

This afternoon, Mulanje Park Stadium will be the centre of attraction as the defending champions, Wanderers, face unpredictable Tigers.

The Lali Lubani Road boys travel to Mulanje without key defenders, Dennis Chembezi and Bongani Kaipa, who got injured during the derby.

The Nomads Technical Director (TD), Jack Chamangwana, said they expect tough opposition from Tigers.

“It would be a difficult game. We have told our boys that the only way for us to show our superiority in the league is by occupying the first position. We know Tigers very well and we have organised ourselves so as to win this match,” Chamangwana said.

Wanderers will welcome back midfielder Ernest Tambe from suspension. Tigers have Luke Chima, Willy Saenda and Victor Nyirenda to look out for in this encounter.

Tigers’ TD, Robin Alufandika, said his charges were in confident mood following their 3-0 win over Mafco on Saturday.

Alufandika believes that they can top the log table once they win today.

“We want to maintain our winning run. We beat Moyale Barracks and Mafco in Mulanje, so we want this to continue. We know that it is a huge task but we are ready for it,” Alufandika said.

In the other game, Bullets travel to Kalulu Stadium in Nchalo, Chikwawa District, to play against Nchalo.

Bullets Team Manager, James Chilapondwa, said they were not underrating Nchalo.

“We haven’t played Nchalo of late but we know the importance of this match. We don’t want to lose points anyhow as we are aware that it would cost us in the next round. Everybody is geared for the match,” Chilapondwa said.

Nchalo Coach, Charles Manda, said they respect Bullets but his players are not under pressure ahead of the match.

“We need just to play our game and make sure that we collect maximum points. We are facing a big side with a large following, but we know what we need to do,” Manda said.

In another fixture today, Blue Eagles face struggling Masters Security at Nankhaka Stadium in Lilongwe.

Eagles and Masters lost to Moyale and Kamuzu Barracks over the weekend.
