Fisd Challenge Cup finalists Be Forward Wanderers and Silver Strikers have stepped up preparations ahead of their meeting at Bingu National Stadium in Lilongwe on Sunday.
The finalists will fine-tune for the final when they play TNM Super League games tomorrow.
Nyasa Big Bullets host Silver at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre with TN Stars welcoming Wanderers at Kasungu Stadium tomorrow.
Silver will surely give Bullets a guard of honour.
Wanderers Team Manager, Steve Madeira, said they would not rotate their squad as that would disturb the team’s momentum.
“We have to keep the players active. We do not want them to lose steam. The game against Silver is our game of the season and everybody knows the importance of the game,” Madeira said.
Wanderers thrashed Moyale Barracks 7-2 on Saturday whereas Silver last played a competitive match last week as they defeated Bullets 2-0 in the cup’s semi-final.
Silver Coach, Lovemore Fazili, said they have intensified preparations for the final.
“Since we participated in the Confederations Cup games, we have been training twice a day. We will also train in Blantyre. We are sure that we will get something against Wanderers on Sunday,” Fazili said.
The cup provides Silver and Wanderers a perfect opportunity to win silverware this season.
The winner of the trophy will pocket K16 million plus a trophy.
