Nomads coach hopes for a morale-boosting win against Lions
Mighty Wanderers FC are hoping for a boost from a rescheduled TNM Super League match on Wednesday at Kamuzu Stadium in Blantyre against Red Lions as new coach Gerald Phiri Snr looks to steady the ship.
The Nomads are stuck on the 14th slot having lost two games consecutively in their last trip to Lilongwe where they were beaten by Blue Eagles and Civo United.
Phiri said his troops are geared for mid-week encounter and stressed any slip-up will cost them dearly.
“We cannot afford to lose or draw tomorrow’s game because we have already lost important games. We are aware that it will not be an easy task to beat our opponents, but playing at home, with your support behind, we need to win at any cost,” he said.
Nomads captain, Francis ‘FM 7’ Mlimbika, said they are ready to the mid-week showdown.
“It is now time to focus ahead by winning each and every. It will not be easy to beat Red Lions, but l can assure our fans that we will fight from the kick-off up to the end of the game,” said Mlimbika.
“We will play with our lungs out because any defeat will mean disaster for us,” said Mlimbika.
However, Red Lions coach Billy Phambala said after losing to Big Bullets in their previous match in Zomba, they are invading Blantyre with one purpose, which is to win.
“Our ambition this season is to grab the league, and for us to fulfil this ambition we need to be winning each and every game ahead of us. So Wanderers will be in for it tomorrow,” said Phambala.
