A verbal war has ensued between the soldiers of Lilongwe Kamuzu Barracks and Blantyre based giants Nyasa Big Bullets ahead of the two side’s round of 16 clash in the ongoing Carlsberg Cup.
Speaking in a pre-match interview, Bullets assistant Elia Kananji admits he is wary of wounded soldier’s who are looking for a revenge.
“Kamuzu Barracks are still licking their wounds after their defeat to us in the league and because of that this will be a complex game,” says Kananji.
“We will be cautious but losing is not an option for Bullets,” said Kananji.
“My players are ready to grind out a victory. With appropriate technique executed and 120 percent accountability displayed we can beat KB.”
Kamuzu Barracks team manager Francis Shawa insists that his side will revenge.
Shawa admits they struggled in their meeting with Bullets, but he is confident his team have what it takes to upset the tables in the Carlsberg Cup.
“We were disappointed with the loss to Bullets in the League, but we have to be honest and admit we didn’t have the skill to break down their defence. That is something we will work on ahead of Wednesday’s game,” says Shawa.
“Against them we lost the game because we had little respect for them and their aggressiveness. We won’t do the same on Wednesday.
“It is a new game against them on Wednesday and we have to bounce back. We are coming to Blantyre on a mission not as tourists.”
