Civo United travel to Blantyre for TNM Super League assignments against in-form Be Forward Wanderers Saturday and Azam Tigers Sunday at Kamuzu stadium while looking for a resurrection.
Lying sixth on the standings with four points from three games, Civo dropped maximum points last Sunday after losing 2-1 to their arch rivals, Silver Strikers.
Millias Pofera, the 2015 Standard Bank champions’ coach, said he was aware that it will be a huge task to beat the Nomads.
“This will be our first trip to play outside Lilongwe this season and we are aiming high. We believe that this will be a starting point for us to compete for top positions in the league. We just want to play our football,” Pofera said.
Civo have scored six goals in their last three games with Nelson Kangunje and Fletcher Bandawe netting two each.
However, Kangunje and company need to be on top of their game against the Nomads, who have five points from three games
with their last league game being a 1-1 draw against defending champions, Nyasa Big Bullets.
Seasoned striker Peter Wadabwa, who is Wanderers’ leading scorer in all competitions with three goals in four games, will likely partner speedy Amos Bello in attack. Civo defenders such as Blessings Kawanga and Lameck Kachimanga have their work cut out.
Apart from Civo, teams such as Wizards FC, Red Lions and Max Bullets will be out seeking maximum points.
Wizards travel to Lilongwe to face Silver and Kamuzu Barracks today and tomorrow respectively. Max Bullets play against Moyale Barracks and Mzuni at Mzuzu stadium while Red Lions head to Lilongwe for a meeting with leaders Blue Eagles.
