Champions Be Forward Wanderers have promised to make hay while the sun shines when they date Masters Security FC in a TNM Super League match at Balaka Stadium this afternoon.
Wanderers have made a promising start to the season, having come from behind to stun Silver Strikers 2-1 at Silver Stadium in the league’s official opening match.
The Nomads Coach, Yasin Osman, said they will not get carried away with their win.
“We need to make hay while the sun shines. We know that every game will be difficult but we will take each game at a time. Our mission is clear—to defend the championship,” he said.
Hitman Peter Wadabwa has started the season positively after scoring a brace to inspire Wanderers’ comeback last week.
The likes of veterans Esau Kanyenda and Joseph Kamwendo were also inspiring during the opening game.
On the other hand, Masters Coach, Abbas Makawa, believes the team is capable of pulling a surprise despite statistics suggesting otherwise.
Wanderers defeated Masters 4-0 in a warm up match for both teams’ pathetic campaign in Caf competitions.
The Nomads humbled Masters 4-1 during their last league meeting in December when Wanderers reached the Promised Land by ending their 11-year drought for the title.
Last week, Makawa’s charges forced Civil Sporting Club to a one-all draw, a result Makawa attributed to fatigue as his players trained for a day before the game.
“Wanderers are favourites but we will go into the game to fight for our names and after 90 minutes, we want to come out with a satisfying result,” Makawa said.
Francis Nkonda is expected to be Masters’ main man in the Civil match.
There are a total of five games this afternoon.
