The battle of points in the elite TNM Super League continues this coming weekend, as the second round kicks-off on Sunday with some mouth-watering fixtures in all the regions of the country.
In a fixture released by the Super League Association of Malawi (Sulom), Mighty Wanderers have tricky fixtures in the capital city of Malawi, Lilongwe, as they take on Epac F.C at Silver Stadium on Sunday before trekking to area 30 the next day, where they will face Blue Eagles at Nankhaka Ground.
The Nomads are blossoming with confidence having won the Standard Bank Cup last Saturday after beating Silver Strikers 2-0 in a thrilling encounter which took place at Silver Stadium.
However, the Nomads have accused Sulom for not been considerate in their fixtures.
The Nomads general secretary David Kanyenda protested that it was unfair for Sulom to give them two fixtures basing on the fact that some of their players, who are with the Malawi national team in readiness of Ghana game on Saturday have to play three crucial games in a role.
The Nomads have contributed Moses Chavula, Richard Chipuwa, Francis Mlimbika, Victor Mpinganjira and Joseph Kamwendo to the national team.
“It is unfair to us because it means some of our players have to play against Ghana before the two assignments on Sunday and Monday. We could have loved to play a single game in Southern Region not what they have done,” said Kanyenda.
Kanyenda also quizzed why Silver Strikers were omitted without being given any game yet both clubs had a crucial game last weekend.
Sulom’s general secretary Williams Banda stressed that it was a non-starter for the Nomads to complain about the fixture because next week they will be on bye.
“There is no any problem with the fixture and what they should understand is that there is already congestion of fixtures as the Carlsberg Cup kicks off next week. Wanderers should just bear with us,” said Banda.
