Mighty Be Forward Wandrers invade the Central Region this Thursday to repeat their heroic and supremacy over Blue Eagles after they knocked the cops out of the FISD Challenge Cup last Saturday but the home side is itching for an opportunity to revenge.
The Nomads beat the cops 1-0 courtesy of a Bongani Kaipa stunning header in the 81st minute orchestrated from a Mike Kaziputa corner kick.
But this time around, the two sides meet again in the TNM Super League five days after their cup tussle at the corps backyard Nankhaka ground in the Capital Lilongwe.
Mighty Be Forward Wanderers Team Manager Steven Madeira said they have been working on their striking force to ensure they score more goals in the league encounter.
“We did not score more goals in the FISD Cup game and we have been working on that and I hope we will score more goals on Thursday and collect all the three points,” said Madeira.
Madeira said the Nomads technical panel has discovered that one of the weaknesses of Blue Eagles is their defence while part of their strength is on the midfield.
“They have a porus defence and they are good at the midfield especially this guy Masiye (Phillip) he is doing a great job for them,” Madeira said.
Wanderers who are on position six with 41 points can penetrate into the top five if they beat the former defending champions.
It promises to be a one of the most thrilling encounters as Eagles will also be looking forward to recover from their loss and collect maximum points to go top of the log standings.
Blue Eagles Assistant coach told reporters after their Fisd Cup defeat to Wanderers that their exit in the cup is a ‘blessing in disguise’ as they will fully focus on the league title.
He said they cannot afford to lose two games to the same team in a period of less than seven days.
Meanwhile, Nyasa Big Bullets, Blue Eagles and Mafco FC are the joint league leaders with 45 points each and are separated by goal difference.
Things are likely to change by the end of Wednesday as Kamuzu Barracks date Silver Strikers in another repeat of a Fisd Challenge Cup semifinal at the Civo Stadium.Follow and Subscribe Nyasa TV :
