Be Forward Wanderers vice captain Joseph Kamwendo (JK) has said his club will go flat out when they face minnows Fish Eagles in the Carlsberg Cup Round of 32 clash at the Balaka Stadium on Wednesday.
The Nomads are fresh from their 1-0 victory against Masters Security in the TNM Super League last Sunday after they were also clobbered 2-0 to Civil Sporting Club.
Wanderers , who are the cup holders after defeating Silver Strikers last year, have no suspensions ahead of their clash against a minnow Mzuzu based side.
Midfielder Yamikani Chester has been one of Wanderers most talked-about players due to his outstanding performances. The winger will look to inspire the Nomads to victory on Wednesday.
The Nomads vice captain Joseph Kamwendo is confident that they will overcome Fish Eagles and advance to the round of 16.
“That one, it’s so simple because we need to go to the round of 16 and fight to defend the cup,” Kamwendo said.
“We need the same attitude and mentality we have against the bigger teams when we play the smaller clubs,” Kamwendo said.
“But, hopefully, the performance against Prison United last year in the same cup is also a reminder to the players that we still have a lot of hard work ahead,” he said.
Last year, the Nomads struggled against Prison United when they had to wait last minute to score through Peter Wadabwa.
In other matches on Wednesday, Mafco FC have what looks like a walk over against Chitedze Strikers at Chitowe Stadium, as Blue Eagles hosts Ekwendeni at Nankhaka.
