The Civil Servants face the People’s Team-Bullets on Mothers Day Holiday Thursday 15th October, 2015 at the Kamuzu Stadium in the first Semifinal match of the Standard Bank Cup.

But Civo should expect massive and stiff resistance as they face a team which has never lost any game in any of the domestic competitions in the 2015-2016 soccer season.

Speaking ahead of the crucial encounter, Civo Assistant Coach Beggie Mwagomba said preparations are going on smoothly and that their wish is beat any team standing on their way until they grab the Standard Bank.

According to Mwagomba, winning the cup will be an early Christmas gift to their Executive Committee for the massive and tireless support to the team in the 2015 soccer season.

“This (winning Standard Bank) will be a Christmas gift to our executive committee for the tireless and massive support they have offered to the team this season” said Mwagomba.

“It has been a very long time since we won a cup and this time around, we want to win this one” added Mwagomba.

However, Bullets who were few days ago sailing in troubled waters following the call from players to have some senior members in the supporters and executive committee be fired that led to players training boycot, have since said dust has been settled and said they are geared to face Civo.

Big Bullets Technical Director Billy Tewesa said all the wrangles have been sorted out and that players resumed training on Monday.

“As Bullets family, starting from the executive, supporters, players and technical panel, we have united and agreed on one thing thus to grab the Standard Bank Cup”

“We have never won Standard Bank Cup and we want this cup to come to big Bullets now,” said Tewesa.

According to Tewesa, Bullets have received a morale boost with the return of defender Sankhani Mkandawire who has been injured but goalkeepers Vincent Gona and Owen Chaima, defender Bashir Maunde and midfielder Fischer Kondowe remains doubtful.

The battle for the Standard Bank final slot continues on Saturday as Mighty Beforward Wanderers invade the central region to face Blue Eagles in the semifinal match staged at Civo stadium.

The Nomads remains the only team that managed to previously win the prestigious Standard Bank cup twice.

The defending champions Silver Strikers were knocked out of this year’s competition in the quarterfinal stage.
