Wounded Silver Strikers and Kamuzu Barracks are hoping to bounce back in the TNM Super League following their shock exit from the Carlsberg Cup midweek.

Third-placed Silver, having been booted out of the Carlsberg Cup following their 0-1 loss to Red Lions on Wednesday, entertain strugglers Dwangwa United at Nankhaka Stadium today.

The Central Bankers’ Coach, Lovemore Fazili, said his team has picked itself up after the loss.

“That game is gone. Cup games are always tricky. We defeated Lions in the league and a few days later, we met them in the cup.

“It was always going to be tough as teams are not prepared to lose back-to-back games against the same opponents,” he said.

Fazili said Silver had the right players with the right attitude to bounce back strongly.

“The race for the championship is a marathon. It is not a sprint. We just have to take each game as it comes. Hopefully, we will do well in this game,” Fazili, whose charges have 20 points from 10 games, said.

Dwangwa United Technical Director, Lloyd Nkhwazi, said their mission was to move up the table as they are stuck on position 15, with eight points from 11 games.

Under similar circumstances, TNM Super League Champions, Kamuzu Barracks (KB), after a painful exit from the Carlsberg Cup following a 5-3 post-match penalty loss to Nyasa Big Bullets, have a chance to redeem themselves when they face Masters Security at Civo Stadium.

KB Team Manager, Francis Shaba, said they have enough arsenal to help them forget their dismal Carlsberg Cup run and concentrate on their title defence challenge.

The soldiers are on position 10 on the table with 14 points from 10 games whereas league debutants, Masters, lie on position 14 with 10 points.

“We may not be in the best position as defending champions but, surely, we are still among the title favourites,” Shaba said.

The match will provide a tough test for newly-appointed Masters acting co-coaches Jabil Maliro and Lyton Mangani, who replaced the suspended Benjamin Kumwenda.

In another match set for today, Azam Tigers will date Wizards at MDC Ground.
