In a bid to rediscover their winning formula Big Bullets have recalled their two players Godfrey Masonda, who was in Mozambique and Jellesi Lufeyo who was loaned to Epac FC, the club’s general secretary Higger Mkandawire has confirmed.
Mkandawire said the move to recall the players is aimed at ending unprecedented goalless start to their top-flight second round campaign.
The People’s Team have failed to find the net in all their three second round games so far, the latest of which was a 0-0 draw at home to Civo United on Saturday, barely a week after coming back goalless from two Mzuzu assignments.
The Bullets have struggled to score goals in the aftermath of star striker Gabadinho Mhango’s departure to Absa Premiership outfit Bloemfontein Celtic.
“We’ve discussed at executive level. You know Big Bullets is a team that needs to produce results so at the moment what we’ve done is to recall our players like Jelesi Lufeyo and there’s also Godfrey Masonda,” said Mkandawire.
Mkandawire emphasized that they feel the inclusion of the two players will turn their misfortune in the elite League.
“These guys are coming back. We’ve recalled them so that they can at least add value to a team like Big Bullets. At the same time we need to have competition at training level so that our coaching panel should have players who can help execute their game plan.
“These guys know our system as they’ve been at Big Bullets before.”
The recall of Masonda upfront will boost morale in the Peoples Team a head of their crucial encounter on Saturday against Kamuzu Barracks at Kamuzu Stadium.
