Peter Wadabwa returns


Be Forward Wanderers top striker, Peter Wadabwa, has returned to training after being sidelined by a leg injury.

Wadabwa’s return has given the Yasin Osman-led coaching panel a selection headache ahead of Sunday’s Airtel Top 8 Cup clash against Azam Tigers at Balaka Stadium.

Wanderers Team Manager, Steve Madeira, Thursday said Wadabwa’s return was a morale booster.


“We have good strikers such as Khumbo Ng’ambi and Julius Kajembe. Now, it is difficult for the coach to identify strikers for the match. Otherwise, preparations are going on well and we are very ready to face the Tigers. Meanwhile, Yamikani Chester has also resumed training,” he said.

However, another Wanderers striker Ishmael Thindwa is undergoing physiotherapy after getting injured while playing for the Flames.

In the other camp, Tigers Coach, Patrick Kulemeka, has said his charges were not moved by the happenings in Wanderers’ camp.


“We are playing against a side that we know. Yes, we may be playing as underdogs, but anything can happen in football. Football is not about who is playing or not. It is about tactics displayed on the field of play on that particular day,” Kulemeka said.

“This is the first leg and our aim is to do better so that when we play at home team in the second leg, we should have an upper hand. I have a good crop of players capable of performing wonders.”

The quarterfinal games will kick off this weekend with Silver Strikers hosting Nyasa Big Bullets at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe Saturday.
