Bullets are expected to meet Al Hilal of Sudan this weekend during the first leg of their encounter. However, they might not get expected services of their key defenders Sankhani Mkandawire, Bashir Maunde, goalkeeper Vincent Gona and striker Jaffalie Chande as these are injured.

Mkandawire is nursing a knee injury he sustained when Bullets were meeting Zimbabwe’s Caps United in a friendly match a week ago.

A source privy to the information confided in Nyasa Times that the team’s doctor advised Mkandawire to be on injury list for four weeks.

“But when he went to QECH [Queens Elizabeth Central Hospital] he was told to stay for six weeks,” said the source.

The source further said Maunde has a thigh injury while Gona and Chande have shoulder and ankle injuries respectively.

“The technical panel has just taken them on board because alibe mtengo wogwira (they don’t have any option). Most of these players did not train because of the injuries,” he said.

In a desperate attempt, Bullets have included defender Ian Chinyama in the squad in case the worse comes to the worst.

Bullets General Secretary Harold Fote told Daily Times that “we do not want to take chances. That’s why we will be taking Chinyama in case something happens.”

The squad that has travelled to Sudan includes,  Goalkeepers: Gona and Chimwemwe Kumkwawa; Defenders: Mkandawire, Miracle Gabeya, Maunde, Chinyama, Yamikanai Fodya and Pilirani Zonda. Midfielders: Victor Limbani, Fischer Kondowe, James Chilapondwa, Henry Kabichi, Dalitso Sailesi and Strikers: Jaffalie Chande, Tizgobere Kumwenda and Mussa Manyenje.

Bullets beat Fomboni FC of Comoros Island 3-2 on aggregate to progress while Al Hilal beat KMKM of Zanzibar on aggregate.
