Buoyed by last Sunday’s away 2-1 victory over Silver Strikers, BeForward Wanderers must exercise caution when hosting rookies, Dwangwa United, during this afternoon’s TNM Super League game at Kamuzu Stadium.
The Nomads Coach Jack Chamangwana knows that nothing short of victory against Dwangwa will be acceptable.
Chamangwana has abundant talent at his disposal, including Nigerian import Amos Bello formerly of Shiba FC, but probably the coach’s main challenge would be selecting the first XI.
Against Silver, some Wanderers players, such as exciting midfielder, Rafik Mussa, were featured out of position.
On paper, Wanderers are favourites, but football is always full of surprises.
“We are not underrating them. We need to approach the game seriously because we don’t know them very well, but they know how we play,” Chamangwana said.
With Dwangwa searching for their first points in the league, the rookies have threatened to cause a major upsets of the season.
Despite losing 1-0 to Blue Eagles at home last weekend, Dwangwa are no push-overs, Coach MacDonald Mtetemera has warned.
“We will go flat out and try to make life difficult for them on the pitch. The boys are mentally strong and we are really positive that we can do something good against Wanderers,” Mtetemera said.
Nomads will rely on Bello, Jabulani Linje, Peter Wadabwa and Stanley Sanudi, whereas Kingsley Kapalamula, Davie Chadewa, Zikani Kasambara and Kondwani Bagi are potential match winners for the rookies.
In another action today, Silver hope to return to winning ways when hosting unpredictable Azam Tigers at Silver Stadium in Lilongwe.
The Bankers have assembled a youthful squad after releasing over 10 players in a rebuilding exercise.
Both sides are without a win this season as Tigers drew 2-2 with rookies, Max Bullets last week.
