By Mphatso Malidadi:

Newly-crowned Carlsberg Cup kings, Masters Security, have threatened to inflict more pain on Be Forward Wanderers when the two sides renew hostilities in the Fisd Challenge Cup preliminary round at Kamuzu Stadium this afternoon.

The game comes barely three days after Masters’ historic 5-4 win over Wanderers on post-match penalties.

Masters came from behind to force the game into post-match penalties after substitute Sammy Phiri had cancelled out Precious Sambani’s early strike.

Masters Team Manager, Muhammed Selemani, said they were not yet done with Wanderers.

“We know it will be a tough match. They will come hard on us because of their loss on Saturday. We need to be at our best to beat them again,” Selemani said.

For Wanderers, the Fisd Challenge is proving to be their last realistic chance of silverware this season as they were also knocked out of the Airtel Top 8 Cup.

The Nomads could also successfully defend the TNM Super League as they have eight games to wrap up the season.

Wanderers Coach, Bob Mpinganjira, said they needed to recover quickly and avenge Saturday’s painful defeat.

“The cup final is gone and is water under the bridge. We should now focus on doing well in the Fisd Cup,” Mpinganjira said.

Nomads Captain Alfred Manyozo Junior, who missed the decisive penalty which allowed Masters to win the cup, will need to recover quickly to lead the hosts’ onslaught.

The skipper missed his spotkick to hand Masters their first ever national trophy.

Mpinganjira might also need to change his starting line-up by giving speedy Peter Wadabwa a place in the starting eleven.
