Bullets, Wanderers renew rivalry in derby clash: Malawi TNM Super League

Familiarity tends to breed contempt.  Big Bullets coach Elijah Kananji has said his charges must underline their title ambitions by beating old rivals Mighty Wanderers on Saturday in the TNM Super League Blantyre city derby at Kamuzu Stadium.

Kananji said he is not nervous about the game, saying there is no pressure ahead of the clash of titans.

The coach was speaking to Nyasa Times at Money men ground during morning training session ahead of the much-anticipated Blantyre derby.

“I prepare my team very well and my players understand my philosophy. People under pressure cannot think properly and they end up making mistakes. We are not under pressure. “said Kananji.

Kananji also said he was boosted with the return from injury list defender Bashir Maunde.

Bullets coach said the win will be a perfect statement of intent in their title charge.

At the BAT ground, the training base of Mighty Wanderers, technical director Yasin Osman and coach Gerald Phiri were plotting against shocking Bullets.

“Everybody is prepared and knows what is at stake,” said Phiri WITH hope to build on last week’s 1-0 win over new league leaders Blue Eagles.

“My players understand what this game against Bullets means. On Saturday, we will be fighting for three points.  Bullets do not have these points; they will have to fight for it. I think our players are ready,” he said.

Wanderers, placed 10th on 20 points, step into the Blantyre derby itching for revenge having lost 2-0 in the first round to the sworn rivals at the same venue.

A win for the Nomads would be a consolation in a season they could finish empty-handed.

Bullets are the favourites going into this encounter. They have got the spirit and currently they have also the rhythm.
