Nyasa Big Bullets Coach Nsanzurwimo Ramadhan is still hopeful of a possible comeback in the return leg of the Airtel Top 8 quarterfinal against Silver Strikers.
Bullets lost 1-nil in the first leg at the Bingu National Stadium piling pressure on Ramadhan whose side managed a single point out of a possible six in the opening fixture of the county’s top flight league.
Speaking to reporters after the defeat, the former Flames Care-taker Coach admitted his side still face same problem of lucking firepower upfront.
“You quiet right. Same disease of no sharp strikers’ upfront but am hopeful we will rectify the problem before the return leg. We made a few changes to our starting eleven against Silver but we were just unlucky not to get an away goal.
“I am hopeful that we can still stage a comeback over Silver who were solid at the back,” said Ramadhan.
Responding to a question on whether he is feeling the hit following successive defeats in the league and Cup, the Burundi tactician said it’s too early to start pressing the panic buttons.
“Tell me one verse in the Bible where no-one felt no pressure? Even yourself, you have pressure to deliver good work at your institution for your bosses to get convinced. I still believe in the same players as I said before the season kick off.
“I have a lot of respect to our supporters but they know we still in the rebuilding process. Very soon we will turn the corner,” lamented Ramadhan.
Bullets who were lodging at Crown Hotel prior to the Silver game left Lilongwe soon after the defeat with some Bullets diehards singing “ we need a striker” which they feel is a major problem since Chiukepo Msowoya left.
