As the TNM Super League season rolls into action Saturday, attention will be on debutants who begin life in the top-flight league with away fixtures.
Chipiku Premier Division champions, Masters Security FC, will be on the road to the Lake Shore to meet Dwangwa United today.
In the Northern Region, Simama Premier Division kings, Chitipa United, travel to Mzuzu Stadium for a dance with giants Nyasa Big Bullets.
Tomorrow, Masters Security Premier Division champions, Blantyre United, travel to Zomba for a meeting with Red Lions.
After raiding the market to sign 22 players, including two from Nigeria, Masters Security FC must have a point to prove that their spending was not in vain.
Masters Coach, Benjamin Kumwenda, said his charges were not under pressure to deliver.
“We have a good squad indeed but we have to wait to see if that will translate into results on the ground. We are not under pressure. We know that eyes will be on our team but people should also know that our players are not big stars because they were also not stars where they were playing,” he said.
The Lilongwe rookies have signed big names such as Robin Ngalande, Eneya Banda and Simplex Nthala.
Kumwenda insisted that the prospect of playing in Dwangwa was not giving Masters sleepless nights.
Chitipa Coach, Kondwani Mwalweni, said facing Bullets in the opening fixture is a blessing in disguise.
“Playing Bullets in the first game is not a disadvantage but a blessing in disguise because our players will gain some level of confidence from playing with a big team,” Mwalweni said.
“We are playing at home. It doesn’t matter that somehow we are away from home but our players have promised to deliver.”
Blantyre United Coach, Leo Mpulula, was also quoted recently that his charges were ready for Red Lions tomorrow at Zomba Community Centre Ground.
