Everything went according to plan for Tigers coach Franco Ndawa and his charges got the job done. It was a performance that was characterised by grit and defiance.

Seeking glory in the K28 million Standard Bank knock out cup, Tigers sealed their place as early as sixth minute and defended the lead successfully.

Ndawa, Tigers Technical director Robin Alufandika and team manager Steve Madeira said they are focusing on winning the trophy which they hoisted in 2009.

“This has to be our year in this cup competition.  We have to win this silverware,” said Alufandika.

Tigers will now face Kamuzu Barracks on Saturday in the quarter finals.

Another preliminary match involving the Carlsberg cup champions Big Bullets and Airborne Rangers will take place Thursday in Lilongwe at Civo Stadium.

Bullets, Airborne, Tigers and Epac made it into the competition through votes from their supporters.

Six teams had an automatic qualification. They are Mighty Wanderers, Silver Strikers, Kamuzu Barracks, Moyale Barracks, Blue Eagles and Mafco.
