Carlsberg Cup finalists, Silver Strikers and Be Forward Wanderers, have stepped up their preparations ahead of their meeting this Saturday at Kamuzu Stadium.
Both teams, which will meet for the first in the cup’s history, have increased their training schedule from one to two per day.
Nomads Team Manager, Steve Madeira, said the preparations were going on smoothly.
“We are preparing just like for any other game. There are no special preparations, but we are determined to defend the cup,” he said.
Elijah Kananji of Wanderers is looking to become the first coach to win the competition for third successive year.
He won it with Nyasa Big Bullets in 2014 before snatching it for Wanderers last season.
Silver assistant coach, Lovemore Fazili, is also determined to win the cup for the first time. There is K10 million at stake for the champion.
“We are confident that we will win the cup this year,” he said.
Silver progressed to their first ever Carlsberg Cup final after a deserved 3-1 victory over Mafco whereas Wanderers defeated Mangochi Police FC 1-0 in another semifinal.
Wanderers were the inaugural winners after beating rivals Bullets at Kamuzu Stadium in 2000. Both teams have won it twice.
