Traditional bitter rivals Big Bullets and Mighty Wanderers will face off in a massive Blantyre derby at Kamuzu Stadium, a TNM Super League second round match.
Big Bullets coach Eddingtone Ng’onamo and his assistant Gerald Phiri have predicted a win again Nomads.
“We will win the game,” confident Ng’onamo said.
“It’s going to be a showdown,” he added.
Ng’onamo said the win against Wanderers will brush aside theories from some sections of Bullets fans that they are Mighty Wanderers sympathizers.
Wanderers general secretary David Kanyenda on the other hand has predicted a 2-0 beating of the Bullets who only registered wins over the Nomads in the Fama Cup semi-final and Carlsberg Cup inaugural launch matches.
“We want to package Bullets as a New Year present to nyerere (Nomads fans). We will beat them 2-0 and become the first team to win at the reopened Kamuzu Stadium,” he said.
Kanyenda taunted the Bullets, saying they will continue with their role as ‘brides ‘for Wanderers.
In a related development, Sulom has announced that fans will pay K500 (about $1.47) for the cordoned open stands at Kamuzu Stadium to watch Sunday’s Blantyre derby between Wanderers and Bullets.
According to Sulom, the new charges were reached after a stakeholders meeting
on Monday following the slashing of the stadium’s capacity from 35,000 to 16,000 after barricading the eight stands.
In the open stands, spectators have to cough K500 each while MBC stand is K1, 000.
Spectators, who will wish to watch the match from the covered stands, have to pay K2, 000 while the VIP stands tickets are being sold at K3, 000.
Meanwhile, Sulom has assured the general public on tight security during the Blantyre derby having hired 120 police officers and 80 Stewarts.
“Anyone who will try to cause any disturbance at the stadium will be arrested. Let me also take this opportunity to urge fans to come early because once the capacity is reached, no one will be allowed an access to enter in the stadium,” said Sulom’s general secretary William Banda.
Bullets are third on 39 points while Wanderers lie fifth on 35 points. Both are in league title contention.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
