As they wait for Confederation of African Football to release official results of the Champions League and Confederation Cup continues, Nyasa Big Bullets have arranged two friendlies in Tanzania next week.
Bullets will compete in the Champions League while Silver Strikers registered for the Confederation Cup.
“This is just a continuation of our preparations for the Champions League. After playing against JKU here at home, we also need to get a feel of what it is like to play in another country without our vocal supporters,” Haiya said.
Bullets will travel to Tanzania without some of their key players who will be with the Flames for their return leg of the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Comoros Islands.
Some Bullets’ influential players will also miss the trip because of their involvement with Malawi under-23 national side.
But Haiya said the team has capable replacements for the players who will be with the two national teams.
“We have several players who have not been getting enough game-time and this is their chance to prove that they deserve a place in the team,” he said.
Haiya said Bullets will return home on November 19.
Football Association of Malawi Transfer Matching System Manager, Casper Jangale, encouraged Silver and Bullets to continue with their preparations, as they wait to know their opponents in the continental club competitions.
This will be the second consecutive time for Malawian clubs to participate in the two competitions after Masters Security and Be Forward Wanderers were eliminated from the preliminary round of the 2018 Confederation Cup and Champions League, respectively.
